Phoenix MC Marcus Latief Scott Featured in Piranha 3DD, Drops Debut Album
With all of the marquee movies in theaters right now, you might have missed the June 1 release of Piranha 3DD, a sequel to the 2010 horror-comedy Piranha. The flick promises to deliver, "twice the terror, and double the D's," with celebrity cameos by none other than Mr. Baywatch himself, David Hasselhoff and the ever-wacky Gary Busey.
The soundtrack to this gorefest gets some local treatment with homegrown rapper, Marcus Latief Scott, whose track, "Got Me in a Trance" pops up right after the opening credits and is the lead track on the official soundtrack.
Scott's self-titled debut off of local indie label, Fervor Records, dropped yesterday and is off to a racing start with the movie placement.
A taste of Piranha 3DD
The new album, which is described as having, "slick hooks and natural born swagger," alternates between electronic club banging beats on, "Got Me In A Trance" and "The Fun Never Stops," and more soulful, funky cuts in "Do or Die" and "Speak Up." The Phoenix-native shows off his grandiose gab over the 12-tracks.
Scott's hoping to keep up the momentum with a second song scheduled to appear later this year in the Fall film, Won't Back Down, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. In the meantime you can scope out the album at iTunes.
If the local love isn't enough to get you to check out the raunchy movie, maybe the trailer will.
