VIDEO: L. Marshall - The Wait + DOWNLOAD 'The Wait' (MIXTAPE)

L has been putting in some major work the past 2 years or so, since we last heard from him, which I believe was when he released his 'out of this world' single 'My Ex' via his NotjustOk Hype post.

Along with many other accomplishments in the past 2 years, L. Marshall penned the hit single, How We Roll (#2 on UK Charts) for Loick Essien and went on tour with a few big acts in the UK including Tinnie Tempah.

Here is his first video, off his amazing, debut mixtape 'The Wait'. Simple, but will keep you attentive mostly because the music is that good.

Make sure you download the mixtape and look out for L. Marshall to blow up pretty soon in the UK; his talent and material with a little bit of blessings should do the trick!

The kid L. is SICK!

L.Marshall is one of the most exciting and creative talents to emerge from the Nigerian/UK scene in recent years. Born in London to an English father and Nigerian mother, he moved to Brazil aged 3 and then on to Nigeria at 10 before heading to the UK 6 years ago. This diverse upbringing has certainly influenced him to blend the different styles which make up his sound.

As some of you may know, L came on the scene with ‘My Ex’ in 2009 which arrested the attention of many music lovers and most importantly, opened L to the industry. It’s been all about the wait ever since with L spending every day making music at his home studio with his two brothers, recording and writing his own material as well as for other artists. L was also completing his University degree in the process. Only less than four months after graduation, L got his first break in January 2011 featuring on Wretch 32's hit single ‘Traktor’ with a number 4 debut in the UK singles charts and still currently a heavily rotated track across the country. L then started working on his debut album and mixtape ‘The Wait’. Amidst this, L penned ‘How we roll’ for Loick Essien which hit number 2 spot in the UK singles chart over the summer and one of the biggest tunes today. He has since then written for Kelis, JLS, Mz Bratt, collaborated with Maxsta, Roxxann, Benny Banks, and Sincere.

With the industry buzzing over L’s remarkable talent blend of singer/rapper/songwriter, L soon bagged a record and publishing deal with Mercury and Sony. L has also been on the road throughout the year performing with the likes of Wretch 32 and Tinie Tempah for MTV, 2011 Bigga Fish tour, as well as industry respected events such as ILuvLive and YoYo's.

Needless to say, L has certainly set the scene for 2012. His debut mixtape 'The Wait' introduces L.Marshall the artist. It’s a celebration of his talent and the launch of what has already been a remarkable music career so far. At this point, we can only look forward to more music from L.Marshall.

The video of the leading track ‘The Wait’ has been shot by Emil Nava, to be released shortly. Proudly Nigerian, L gives a shout out to 'L.A.G' (Lagos) on this track in the mixtape.

I don't disagree with the post below mine. I'd like to see L claim his naija roots openly. I though NJO was mostly supposed to expose naija artists to the world not expose world artists to naija. This is not MTV. I stand to be corrected.

You are the FUCKING stupid one considering L is NIGERIAN and he is trying to take over the world! You are so ignorant its disgusting. TJ is doing something positive and instead YOU as a FELLOW NIGERIAN to support his music, you are here commenting trash and being THE BIGGEST DUMMY!

it really funny how folks hate on artists that go all out english without any traditional language.. free them, thats their style, if the music is good and they got talent, thats how they wanna do it.. i love my naqija songs with a lil bit yoruba, ibo and the likes but i still respect and appreciate it if its pure english.... this guy is the ish as far as im concerned sha.. and notjustok is exposing naija artist, which this guy is, point blank.. world music or gutter music, still naija blood.... GBAM!.. i know someone will wanna come… Read more »

Just to truly put an end to the hatin listen to d song 'the wait' End of verse two(not the video version d 1 on the mixtape) he clearly says "and u kno we be repping L.A.G. until we're dizzy" L.A.G. = Lag = Lagos City Don't talk nonsense if u no even hear the music fully.

Bros why not try to understand the comment before jumping to conclusion. Its not hating. I just wanted to be sure NJO is not losing track of their mission statement which is to put naija music on the map. BTW and FYI you can watch a video of the guys that run this site stating their objectives here.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw-YqjDtugk&fe...

30 secs or so into the video should sort it out.
