“Bills” is the first single from the father-son album, which serves as the soundtrack to The System — a film written and directed by Iroc Daniels that exposes layers of corruption and racial tension within the political, judicial and prison systems.
“There’s a lot of music I listened to including Lil’ Wayne as well as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. And I’m feeling Anderson.Paak’s vibe. It’s inspirational,” says Marquel. “But no matter what type of rapper you want to be, just pay homage. Don’t disrespect the legends.”
It’s about appealing to those you wouldn’t normally appeal to, and to bridge gaps by giving people what they want and what they need at the same time. I will get people who don’t listen or won’t listen, to listen and then to do something for the better.”
