Sa-Roc joins the deluxe party.
Seven months after the release of The Sharecropper’s Daughter, Sa-Roc has decided to update her Rhymesayers debut with an extra six songs.
Taking the album to new heights, which is a feat in itself as it was already one of the better albums from 2020 across the board, Sa-Roc continues to show off her concise blend of thought provoking commentary and razor sharp lyricism over production from Sol Messiah (responsible for the first five songs) and Evidence – who laced the final song, “The Rebirth,” which also features an unreleased verse from the late MF DOOM.
Press play below and be sure to add the deluxe edition of Sa-Roc’s The Sharecropper’s Daughter album wherever you get music.
On top of the deluxe version of the album, Sa-Roc has also released a video for the lead single, “Wild Seeds.”
Directed by Aliza Brugger, the video follows the lyrical themes of “Wild Seeds,” whose verses are a testament to the beauty, mysticism, and wisdom of the elders and ancestors who’ve guided and bolstered generations of Black women through history’s assault and neglect. With a title inspired by the sci-fi novel Wild Seed by visionary author Octavia Butler, the song serves as a celebration of women such as Queen Nanny, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and many others, whose legacies inform future generations of their propensity to bloom under the harshest of conditions.
“Just like wild seeds, we remain unfettered and unbroken, adding beauty and immeasurable value to a world that chooses not to acknowledge us,” Sa-Roc says, “but our very existence is the only acknowledgement we require.”
