“Just like wild seeds, we remain unfettered and unbroken, adding beauty and immeasurable value to a world that chooses not to acknowledge us but our very existence is the only acknowledgment we require.”
The six songs will be available on a bonus vinyl version scheduled for release on August 20th but can be pre-ordered now. The Sharecropper’s Daughter: Bonus Vinyl will be pressed on multi-colored vinyl and housed in a gold foil laminated jacket.Â Sa-Roc will be performing at Lollapalooza 2021 and Cali Roots Festival 2022.Â
Sa-Roc: The Sharecropper’s Daughter Album Stream
Sa-Roc delivers her Rhymesayer’s Entertainment debut The Sharecropper’s Daughter and it’s an introspective trip through her politics and pride in her craft. Sol Messiah handled most of the production on the album that has moments with Ledisi, Black Thought, Saul Williams, Chronixx and Styles P. Guest producers Evidence and Al B. Smoov also added their touch to the music. Sa-Roc mused about TSD in a statement:Â
â€œIâ€™m excited about the content of it. Itâ€™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 emotionâ€¦ 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.â€
Sa-Roc was still able to create a level of festivity despite the seriousness of the topics. Her pro-Black ideas and self-admitted love of emceeing co-exist in a space that feels more like pleasure than preaching. The Sharecropper’s Daughter is available along with merchandise at her website.Â
