Summary
A rap superhero is encased in muscular flesh like armor, his face is an impassive mask, he reaches out to destroy his enemies with his unique talent. Marcus is a gangster who breaks from his youthful life of crime to triumph as a rapper. Marcus's girlfriend helps him pull free the wires holding his jaw shut when he's recovered from being shot in the face. He even has a moment when a razor blade is thrown into his cell and is encouraged to kill himself. Instead, the self-reliant gangster uses it to carve his rhymes into the walls.
