Today, Atlanta-based emcee Sa-Roc drops her long-awaited Rhymesayers Entertainment debut album, 'The Sharecropper's Daughter'. Produced by Sol Messiah, the fifteen-track effort displays Sa-Roc's crafty wordplay and razor-sharp delivery, as she brings poignant, socially conscious and uplifting messages to the forefront. 'The Sharecropper's Daughter' is peppered with a powerful cast of guest features, including Black Thought, Saul Williams, Styles P, Ledisi, and Chronixx, as well as one guest producer, Evidence, who made the beat for "Deliverance".
"I'm super proud of this album," revealed Sa-Roc in an interview with AllHipHop. "I'm excited about the content of it. It's especially timely because it talks about the cycle of injustice we experience in this country. The cycle of emotional baggage in genetic transfer of that emotion… how it frames our perspective and what we can do to reshape a legacy and future for ourselves outside of that trauma and pain we inherit from history, our ancestors, our elders."
Sa-Roc heralded the release of 'The Sharecropper's Daughter' with several stunning music videos, including "r(E)volution", "Deliverance", "Goddess Gang", and "Forever". She gave a resounding performance on NPR's Tiny Desk (Home) series this June, stepping up to the moment with what NPR described as "[P]rotest music for the uprising of the American consciousness."
Also tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern US time, Sa-Roc will celebrate 'The Sharecropper's Daughter' with a live listening party, complete with live performances, special guest appearances, and real-time fan Q&A. See below for more information on this free streaming event.
