Black Thought & Roc Marciano Spit Rhymes Hard Enough To Cut Diamonds (Audio)
Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlists with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.
Last month (September 18), Roc Marciano released his album titled Behold a Dark Horse. The project featured production from The Alchemist and Q-Tip, as well as a guest verse from Busta Rhymes. One of the most anticipated songs from the LP was “Diamond Cutters,” a collabo featuring Black Thought. While Behold a Dark Horse has been available for just under a month, its release was limited to purchased downloads from Roc’s website, which stated it was an exclusive “until (and if) Roc makes it available in other formats.”
It appears Roc believes the time is now right, as the album has hit major digital streaming platforms today (October 15). While the Busta Rhymes song “Trojan Horse,” appears to have been omitted from the streaming release, “Diamond Cutters” remains, and it features Roc and Thought spitting laser sharp rhymes over an eerie track produced by Roc, himself.
In addition to new Roc Marci, the playlist features recent music from Logic, Wu-Tang Clan, Bun B, Run The Jewels, Mac Miller, Buddy, Missy Elliott, Anderson .Paak, Busta Rhymes, Buddy, Action Bronson, Childish Gambino, Drake, Nas, Jay Rock, Westside Gunn, Kanye West & Kid Cudi, Pusha-T, Black Thought & 9th Wonder, Dave East, Royce 5’9 (and his group PRhyme), Dr. Octagon, Phonte, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Black Milk, Eminem, Lute, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Brent Faiyaz, Freddie Gibbs, CyHi The Prynce, Saba, Rapsody, Sylvan LaCue, Evidence, Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, and a host of others.
