Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month because it is the most publicized epidemic that goes on within our communities, media, and social media.
However, October also bleeds purple. Purple stands for “Domestic Violence Awareness Month”, and it often times gets swept under the rug among many adults, so why expect our youth to pay attention to it. This is why rising East Coast artist Young Marco decided to make awareness to the issue through his single, “Gone Long Gone”.
Young Marco is definitely wise beyond his years and is just what our community, as well as our youth, as a whole need.
I recently sat down with Young Marco during a brief phone interview where he discussed his own personal experience with domestic violence as well as his career plans in music.
