“one of the most formidable microphone mavens in the game” – Okayplayer
Following a series of independent releases, Sa-Roc has carved out her own lane through a combination of airtight wordplay and intelligent concepts. Over the course of her illustrious career, she’s performed alongside the likes of Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Atmosphere, and is one of the few MC’s to perform regularly as a feature artist with The Roots, around the country. In addition, she’s also landed an underground hit with “The Who?” featuring David Banner. 2017 saw her deliver a fiery cameo on “We Got This” from Brother Ali’s All The Beauty In This Whole Life, before joining him as direct support on his Own Light Tour across North America.
On her latest release, “Forever”, the hip-hop heroine delivers an empowering message over an ominous bass line, dropping lines like, “No, I’m not flawless. I’m scarred up, and I’m fine with it.” Spitting bars and spinning words, she goes on to recount how mama taught her “stay woke,” admit her own body image struggles, and name-check Do The Right Thing. It feels like it could be rap’s own answer to the “No-Makeup Movement.”
Her full-length debut is set to drop on Rhymesayers later this year, just in time for her first ever UK show with us at the Jazz Cafe this summer.
Joining her on the night will be fast rising Manchester MC Layfullstop.
