Sa-Roc—the emcee heralded by OkayPlayer as “one of the most formidable microphone mavens in the game”—drops “Deliverance” and announces October 2 as the release date for her long-awaited Rhymesayers Entertainment debut album “The Sharecropper’s Daughter”. 

Since signing to the independent powerhouse, Sa-Roc has released a steady stream of singles, including “Forever” (with over 4 million views), “Goddess Gang,” and “Hand of God.” For “Deliverance,” she tapped label mate Evidence to produce the track and direct the bold, visually striking music video.

“If you want protest music for the uprising of the American consciousness, then look no further,” writes Abby O’Neill, describing Sa-Roc’s powerful performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) series this June. 

Indeed, Sa-Roc has spent a lifetime gracefully articulating themes that have been thrust into the center of an essential national conversation. Her forthcoming album is no exception; on it, Sa-Roc draws fearlessly from both historical context and personal experience.

“The Sharecropper’s Daughter speaks to my father’s actual beginnings on a Virginia tobacco farm where his family sharecropped,” reveals Sa-Roc. 

“The title is meant to signify that both my father’s and my upbringing, though so different, are linked by a shared history that informs the way I move through the world… It’s a sonic reflection of the things we inherit. About the emotional weight that we unknowingly bestow upon the next generation; the genetic transfer of both trauma and triumph that we, both donors and beneficiaries, are tasked with reshaping into a future of our own.”
