"We Almost Lost Detroit" the hit single from one of Detroit's well versed and seasoned artists Marquise Porter's critically acclaimed album entitled "Soldier To A Boss", has yet brought another outlook to the hook claiming that Detroit is not yet lost. Although Detroit has faced an abrasive reality on poverty stricken neighborhoods, degradation of buildings and streets in it's city as well as the declination of employment, the spirit of the people manage to keep hope alive through the belief of CHANGE from all aspects in the coming years.
Marquise Porter teamed up with Frankie Glass the C.E.O. of MOBB NORTH RECORDS ( which is established on the East side of Detroit) and Detroit's School Districts (the Fund 52 Detroit schools donation department) to further the belief that our children are the future and education is the key to improving the young lives that are steadily growing everyday.
In saying that, Marquise Porter and Mobb North Records will be giving 50% of all sales of the digital single (which is on Itunes, Amazon.com, Napster & Rhapsody) & Record Stores to charitable causes for the Detroit's school system. Also success has risen out of the album(released July 2008) which maintains constant (research; Nielsen Soundscan) selling power in Michigan.
"We Almost Lost Detroit" the video, which has become a phenomenon on Youtube with over a quarter million hits in several months, depicts the city of the lost artists from Detroit and displays the reality of a very tenacious city that will survive the tragedy that affects it today.
Marquise Porter's music has been featured on Radio One, XM satellite radio, Clear Channel stations across the country as well as a host of internet radio stations, making the title of the album "Soldier To A Boss" a true depiction of Marquise Porter's character and success.
The single comes out on election day November 4th
Mobb North Records is a striving record out of Detroit, which recently signed one of hip hop legend MC BREED plus last year Marquise Porter also won video of the year for "Alone" at the http://www.detroithiphop.com/ Awards
