Versus: Roc Marciano - Lisbon, April 30th - Thank God For Roc Marci Tour.
Rahkeim Calief Meyer is the identity behind one of the great entities of North American Rap. Yes, the man himself: Roc Marciano.
If we look back over his career up to the present day, we find details that at first glance may not say much, but which in reality end up being capital in his identity.
Origin? Long Island. First weight affiliation? Flipmode Squad.
Dirtiness had to be there obligatorily. The strokes of genius, too. Protect your neck, because it will break it!
In reality, Roc Marci built a sound by stripping away its origins and leaving them as raw as possible, to the bare minimum. For this to work, what little remains has to be way over average.
Or Flawless, or nothing.
That's what Roc stands for: Drumless Grimy Beats with a Word Play where every syllable has a context.
There are certain thresholds to define rappers. Roc Marciano is in one of the most special: Your favorite Rapper, Favorite rapper.
As a producer? Just let the Rhythm hit them.
10 albums (between rhymes and instrumentals), collaborations with names like Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Muggs, Action Bronson, De La Soul, Evidence, The Alchemist, etc…
There is no need to embellish this presentation. Roc Marci is the best at what he does.
Lisbon, April 30th (holiday eve), at the Village Underground will mark its debut in Portugal on a date that will be part of the European Tour “Thank God for Roc Marci”.
We cannot wait for this one. “Marci Beaucoup”.
Tickets are now available.
Versus. History in the making.
