The members of Black Violin have plenty of skills. Marcus and Baptiste know how to read sheet music and play a multitude of instruments, from keyboards and trumpet to guitar and drums. Baptiste can even beatbox. But will the two get a chance to achieve their full potential? For now, they're going the Jay-Z route. "We want to keep it simple enough so the average hip-hop listener can hear it," Marcus says. "From there, we want to take it up a notch, and take it up a notch. And as we captivate you, we introduce you to more things we can do."
