4496Fans of West Coast underground hip-hop know Roc C for his stellar debut mic appearance on the 2004 Oh No single “Move Pt. 2”, produced by J Dilla. Roc’s stand-out verse and cameo in the song’s video generated quite a buzz, leading to his own deal with Stones Throw. Roc is making a lot of noise right out the gate. His first single, “Don’t Stop” off the album “All Questions Answered” – an Oh No produced slab of infectious trunk funk – was featured on EA Sports’ Fight Night Round 3 video game. With influences ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to MC Eight, Roc C aims to transcend the usual hip-hop categories. Roc rhymes as therapy, venting the demons of a background shaped by gang rivalries, poverty, jail and mortality. The result is one of Stones Throw’s most street – oriented albums to date.

Roc C brings uncommon passion and firepower to the microphone. This passion has allowed him to work with the likes of Pete Rock, Crooked I, Mr. Porter, Chino XL, The Alchemist, Jake One, Guilty Simpson, Glasses Malone, and Bishop Lamont, among others. He has been a fixture touring in the U.S. and in Europe. Additionally he has been a featured artist in a Nike Commercial, has a character in the “Scarface” video game produced by Sierra/Universal, and received the Newcomer of the Year Award from Sway & Tech’s Wake Up Show. Now it’s time for his brand new album “The Transcontinental”.

“Imakemadbeats and Roc C created something fresh. Hip-hop for almost every face of the hip-hop community without losing their identities. The budding producer Imakemadbeats’ stellar production and Roc C’s fierce lyrics combine to start a journey through life, excellence, and fun. The Transcontinental is here.” Jimmy Kendrix (producer for G Unit, Ashanti, Rihanna, Shyne, Ja Rule, Jay Z, and more).
