Following up his release of single “Black Tux”, Memphis, TN rapper/activist/lecturer Marco Pavé is hard at work promoting his recent TEDx talk. The lecture took place in his hometown of Memphis, where Marc explained exactly how important music is to him and why he would not be here without it. It’s always inspiring when artists within the culture realise just how important it is to add to it positively. Knowledge is one of the five elements and Marco Pavé is an artist who deeply understands the importance of sharing knowledge. Check out his TEDx appearance below.
“The history of Memphis music is long and very detailed, but along the way Memphis fell off the map when it comes to Music. I want to build a great art and music industry back in Memphis. I had been saying that in my own world for a while, I wanted to reach a larger platform with my message of respecting the arts as a viable career choice. Tedx Memphis provided that, I was able to tell my story to a sold-out crowd of 1,000+ people. “ – Marco Pavé
