New Visuals from Sa-Roc: Watch Talk To Me Nice Video Prior to Tour Kickoff

Sa-Roc releases the video for “Talk To Me Nice” ahead of her August tour. The emcee’s longtime partner Sol Messiah produced the unexpected single which is the first from her forthcoming album. She relentlessly delivers verse after verse explaining her fierce individualism in the face of a conformist music industry.  The track is a personal manifesto and an etiquette warning for other rappers who may want to engage with her. She flows with her usual lyrical savvy over Messiah’s soundscape of moody bass and radio static. David Maxwell directed the clip that has appearances from dancer Storyboard P and members of the Art Comes First collective. The Talk To Me Nice tour kicks off on August 4th in Washington, D.C. Sa-Roc has also launched her Talk To Me Nice merchandise. Tickets for the tour are available now.



Sol Messiah’s GOD CMPLX Debut On The Way

Producer Sol Messiah is getting ready for the release of his debut album GOD CMPLX. The hip-hop producer connected with Locksmith, Stic.Man of Dead Prez, Murs, Evidence, Sa-Roc and more on the music. The Atlanta producer is used to sonically painting for other artists like David Banner, Jay-Z and Nappy Roots but GOD CMPLX is his first time being wholly dedicated to his personal vision. “Roc Steady” featuring Sa-Roc is on the album and the video is an ode to crate-digging for vinyl, graffiti, beats and rhymes. GOD CMPLX will be released on September 30th via Rhymesayers Entertainment.  Sol Messiah will join Sa-Roc on her Mother Tongue tour that kicks off September 7th and tickets are on sale now.
