Roc Marciano Unleashes The 1st Video From His DJ Muggs-Produced Album
Although from different decades, both DJ Muggs and Roc Marciano are already legends in the game. Regardless, neither is one to rest on their laurels. The Los Angeles, California-based producer and Long Island, New Yorker are doing some of the best work of their careers in 2018. In fact, both artists have dropped multiple albums that fans are putting forth for Album of the Year. Marci’s style basically spawned a whole sub-genre of hardcore Rap, and on RR2: The Bitter Dose and the recently-released Behold A Dark Horse, he proved he was still the king of this new wave. Muggs similarly dropped the highly-touted Frozen Angels with Meyhem Lauren and the long-awaited Soul Assassins project Dia Del Asesinato, and demonstrated he was still a threat on the boards after a quiet period in the mid-2010s.
When these two Hip-Hop mainstays made an announcement earlier this week that they would be dropping the pre-order for their collaboration project, KAOS, at the end of the work week, there was a tangible excitement in the air. The hardcore Rap faithful got their funds in order. While the purchase of a CD, vinyl record, or cassette does not come with a digital download, these gents did have the couth to give Heads the single “Sh*t I’m On” in the form of a New York-centric video.
The Black Goat looped up such a smooth sample, that only a voice and flow like Rosebudd’s could work here. The light keys and heavy-groove bass line combine pleasantly. Spitting menacing content while staying calm and collected is is Roc’s M.O., but the way he kicks the hook takes it to a new level. Nonchalantly he relays a quick warning to the listener, “That’s that sh*t I’m on / Roll the window down and hit ‘em all.” Hit play and enjoy the mellow murder.
