Raised in the Southern United States, kicking dirt around Birmingham, Alabama, and New Orleans, CEO Chino Marley had to pave his other way through music. Growing up, his passions always lay in music and technology, rapping at school and learning how to take things apart and put them back together again. As Marley transitioned into adulthood, he was met with his fair share of struggles, including the harsh realities of street life and a prison stint keeping him from seeing the birth of his first child, but now he’s back with a newfound focus, developing his music and entrepreneurial side, and taking care of his family.
A reformed talent, Marley has taken the last few years by storm, releasing his full-length mixtape ‘Drip Flies’ in 2019, and the acclaimed ‘Dripology, Vol. 1.’ Mixtape earlier this year. Two dynamic releases that perfectly convey their tone through mournful but variant synth arrangements and a deft slice of homegrown truths, the albums announced Marley as a promising new talent that demands to be heard.
Taken from the latter mixtape, Marley’s new single is the anthemic ‘High’, a visceral track that centres upon drug-fuelled tonality and fittingly psychedelic beats. Produced by SspikeTrap and built to impress, the new single is a perfect example of Marley’s nuanced delivery, layering blunt anecdotes about the world he grew up in and the struggles he had to overcome. While rap might be full of bravado, boasting and showmanship, ‘High’ resonates with a sense of authenticity that makes it all the more enjoyable.
Paired with a vibrant music video that was shot by CFilms and edited by All4Band.com, ‘High’ arguably one of Marley’s boldest and most impressive new releases. Check it out below alongside the official music video.
An impressive and engaging track that revels in stylistic shifts, nuanced effects, and sharp human moments, ‘High’ perfectly represents Marley’s rebirth, pushing past old hardships and delivering a new, focused life.
