SA-ROC an Amazing Talent

It’s about time there is a female emcee that is spitting true knowledge. Sa-Roc is truly talented, she talking about things that are relevant not this crap that is playing on the radio. Sa-Roc was born and raised in the Southeastern quadrate Washington, DC in an Afrocentric household. Sa-Roc grew up listening Go-Go a sub-genre of funk music that originated in Washington, DC. In the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, Sa-Roc also grew up listening to Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holiday, Lenny Kravitz and The Cranberries. Sa-Roc is a writer and poet. Sa-Roc was 19 years old when she started rapping her interest was piqued so she decided to write a rap. Sa-Roc was not serious until she met Sol Messiah, a Atlanta producer and Be-Boy. I think this meeting was a gift from the ‘Almighty’, because we would not have heard about this talented female emcee. Sa-Roc should be played on the radio. It’s a shame that the major record companies don’t know what to do with true talent, or should I say they are afraid of true talent because they can’t mold them into a cash machine. Like Nicki Minja, and Rihanna they are so made up and commercial. Sa-Roc is a beautiful black woman who doesn’t have to be made up plus she has talent. My favorite Sa-Roc songs are “Valley Of The Queen”, “Endustry”, “The Girl Who Could Fly”, “Dark MatterZ” and “Just-Us (4 Troy). If you have not heard any of Sa-Roc music I suggest you YouTube it, listen to her music the knowledge she rapping in all of her songs is what needs to be said and heard. Sa-Roc can be heard on Streetwise Radio.

Eve was born Eve Jihan Jeffers on November 10, 1978, she is a rapper, record producer and actress. Eve grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania while she was in school she sang in many choirs Eve formed (Dope Girl Posse or D.G.P.) this group sung songs from En Vogue and Color Me Badd. After Eve’s manager saw this rap group called ABC he said they should rap. Eve went solo after the rap group she formed split up. That was the start of “Eve of Destruction.” Eve became the first female rap artist on Billboard 200 at number one with “Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders’ First Lady.” Eve is also an actress she played in Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business with Ice Cube. Eve appeared with Vin Diesel in xXx, The Cookout with Queen Latifah and The Woodsman with Kevin Bacon. Eve in my opinion is one of the great ladies of rap. Her lyrics in her songs are so deep. The song “Love Is Blind” (featuring Faith Evans) is talking about domestic violence, I love this song she is speaking the truth. Eve’s song “Let Me Blow Your Mind” with Gwen Stefani is so good Eve says “It’s only been a year now I got my foot through the door and I aint goin nowhere”. Eve’s “Gangsta Lovin” (featuring Alicia Key) song is one of my favorites. Eve is in my opinion is and will always be one of the best female lyricist she comes deep and hard. You can hear a mix of Eve songs on Streetwise Radio. I can’t wait to hear what Eve comes out with, I hope it’s soon.
