Today, Atlanta-based emcee Sa-Roc drops her long-awaited Rhymesay­ers Enter­tain­ment debut album, The Sharecropper’s Daugh­ter. Pro­duced by Sol Mes­si­ah, the fif­teen track effort dis­plays Sa-Roc’s crafty word­play and razor-sharp deliv­ery, as she brings poignant, socially con­scious and uplift­ing mes­sages to the fore­front. The Sharecropper’s Daugh­ter is peppered with a power­ful cast of guest fea­tures, includ­ing Black Thought, Saul Wil­li­amsStyles PLedisi, and Chronixx, as well as one guest pro­du­cer, Evid­ence, who made the beat for “Deliv­er­ance.”

“I’m super proud of this album,” revealed Sa-Roc in an inter­view with All­HipHop. “I’m excited about the con­tent of it. It’s espe­cially timely because it talks about the cycle of injustice we exper­i­ence in this coun­try. The cycle of emo­tion­al bag­gage in genet­ic trans­fer of that emo­tion… how it frames our per­spect­ive and what we can do to reshape a leg­acy and future for ourselves out­side of that trauma and pain we inher­it from his­tory, our ancest­ors, our eld­ers.”

Sa-Roc her­al­ded the release of The Sharecropper’s Daugh­ter with sev­er­al stun­ning music videos, includ­ing “r(E)volution,” “Deliv­er­ance,” “God­dess Gang” and “Forever,” which has sur­passed 4.3 mil­lion views on You­Tube. She gave a resound­ing per­form­ance on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) series this June, step­ping up to the moment with what NPR described as “[P]rotest music for the upris­ing of the Amer­ic­an con­scious­ness.”
