Washington D.C.-born rhymes goddess Sa-Roc is an anomaly, a proverbial one of one in a vastly overcrowded Hip-Hop scene. Hardly a rookie, she has been expanding her dominion on the culture as one that speaks truth, perspective with a force that has not been seen for quite some time. Signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment, she’s one of the few that can and does go bar-for-bar with Black Thought, the goat emeritus. Sa-Roc talks her new re-release album The Sharecropper’s Daughter [Deluxe Edition], which contains six new songs. These songs include MF DOOM, Sol Messiah and Evidence, evoking Octavia Butler, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and other sheroes.
Check out this conversation with Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur as the pair discuss her evolution, climb to prominence and even how she got to consider Black Thought a friend and mentor.
