BLACK VIOLIN picture
Black Violin is an American hip-hop duo from Florida composed of two classically trained string instrumentalists. Kev Marcus plays the violin and Wil B. plays the viola.

Both members attended Dillard High School of Performing Arts. After high school Kev Marcus attended Florida International University and Wil B enrolled at Florida State University. At FIU, Kev met their manager Sam G and the three of them co-founded the production company DKNEX which stands for Di-Versatile Music. The group name "Black Violin" is derived from the influence of a famous jazz violinist, Stuff Smith; six months before Smith's death, he recorded a solo album entitled Black Violin.
