Tough Strings, Solid Drums, Jabbing Bass-Stabs, and Punch-You-in-the-Face Rhymes
|By AMIR SAID (SA’ID)|
Been following Roc Marciano’s development for a while now. He’s reached that rhyme confidence level that many rappers fall well short of. Here on one of Pete Rock’s more sinister beatworks, Roc Marciano is all bravado, no filler or un-useful slang. Each line of poetry flows effortlessly with each meter of the beat. Dope.
