Roc Marciano album released a little whole ago, only had a chance to listen to this recently and I gotta say the record is absolute flames!
The production is as expected, light alchemist style drums with airy/old movie type vibes, cinematic. I was surprised to see Marci behind the boards for most of the tracks, his style reminds me of a stripped down alchemist, but it's still smooth and hard at the same time. Alchemist actually does have a song on here and it's called "Fabio", it's a two in own type of track and for me has to be one of the best.
Onto the lyrics, the raps are amazing, it's that Roc Marci fly pimp shit but seems more polished this time around. The slang and use of flows are a breath of fresh air, he floats effortlessly over the smooth production and he sounds more lively over the more aggressive tracks.
My only downsides of this project is a couple of the beats seem abit too stripped down and minimalistic. Sometimes u feel the beats could do with some hard drums or bass to add variation at times. I'd also like to have heard roc on some concept/story vibes rather than spitting a stream of consciousness as he normally does.
Overall though this is serious heat, Marci remains one of my favourite MCs out and I can't wait for his project with DJ Muggs due to drop on the 19th. 4/5 🔥🔥🔥🔥💯 Highlight tracks:
