Video: Roc Marciano “Change”

by @thoughtontracks

Roc Marciano is an artist I’ve mentioned at least a couple of times on Thought on Tracks.  Marciano is a veteran of New York’s hip hop scene who came up under greats like Busta Rhymes and Pete Rock.  Roc’s always been a special MC, but ever since his long awaited, self-produced solo album Marcberg dropped in 2010, he’s emerged as quite possibly the best rapper on the planet.  Although his follow-up album Reloaded was delayed and has no current release date, Marciano has stayed busy, working extensively with producer The Alchemist, as well as outshining several of the best MC’s in the business on their own tracks.  “Change” is the first track off the Double Feature EP from the UK producer The Purist.  While rappers often submit throwaway verses for producer compilations, Marciano seems intent on proving he’s the best with every single verse, spitting intricate gangster-isms like- “I jump out of the Porsche and spray, till your complexion pale four shades”.  His laid back, detail oriented style shines over The Purist’s minimalist beat, making “Change” an addictive track that can be listened to repeatedly.  Check out the video and get a feel for what a rapper in a creative zone sounds like in 2012.
