Marv Won's soulful new album "I'm Fine, Thanks for Asking" features a host of rap legends

Marv Won is back with his fifth studio album, "I'm Fine, Thanks for Asking."


Released on April 5 through Mello Music Group, the soulful, 10-track project was produced entirely by Marv himself and features a host of rap legends including Freeway, Elzhi, and Rapper Big Pooh of Little Brother.


Drawing inspiration from his storied life in Detroit, Marv tackles a wide array of important topics on "I'm Fine, Thanks for Asking," including mental health ("I'm Fine, Thanks for Asking"), domestic abuse (“Purple”), and unemployment ("Good Thangs").


The project's lead single, "Roc Nation Brunch" featuring Freeway, hears Marv rapping about his desire to one day rise to the pinnacle of the music industry.


"I’m trying to go to the Roc Nation Brunch / Hov on the grill, Beyoncé making the punch," Marv spits over a funky beat which samples The Isley Brothers' 1997 classic "Footsteps in the Dark."



While Marv might not yet be kicking it with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, one superstar rapper he does have a strong relationship with is Eminem.


Marv famously starred as an extra in Em's 2008 movie "8 Mile."


In a scene that was deleted from the movie but included as a bonus feature on the DVD release, the Michigan native went up against and beat Em in a rap battle.


During an appearance on Math Hoffa's "My Expert Opinion" podcast back in 2020, Marv explained how the scene helped launch his rap career.


"That shit literally changed my life," he said. "Not even on a money standpoint, but the fact that when that DVD dropped, they used that scene to sell DVDs."


"Up until that point, my mom thought I was wasting my time," he added.
