Pleasant surprise outchea today. Wasn’t planning on seeing this shit at all. I’ve had the song for a minute, but it’s nice to see Roc do some promo work. Apparently we’re getting his next project, ‘Reloaded’, sometime this summer and it’s going to be executive-produced by Q-Tip. I think we can all agree that Q-Tip’s involvement with anything rap related is a good thing.
For my money, Roc Marci still holds the belt for best NY rap album released in the last half-decade or so. Not that there’s been much competition anyway, but ‘Marcberg’ still sounds amazing as all the fucks to me. Matter of fact, I’mma throw that shit on right after I’m done rambling. When it comes to that dusty, punch-a-nigga-in-the-face-for-breathing, Timberland boot shit, Roc’s got it on lock. With the stories, wordplay, unique flow and menace for days. Listening to shit like this on the regular keeps my heart dark and I really appreciate that. Must be something in that Long Island/Hempstead water.
I mean! This nigga said “…knock ya newborn outta the high-chair.” Fuck. That’s too gully. I’mma need him, Sean Price and Prodigy to go in on some dusty ALC, Harry Fraud or Buckwild shit. I’ll commit a felony that day. I promise.
But until that happens, I’mma just enjoy these emeralds and avoid my boss. SMH…
