Sa-Roc – Deliverance

Portrait: Kaylinn Gilstrap

A new video from Sa-Roc drops today with the announcement of her Rhymesayers debut album, The Sharecropper’s Daughter.

This is the fourth single from the album and is produced by Evidence. The LP features Saul Williams, Styles P, Ledisi, Black Thought, and Chronixx. It’s out 2 October and you can pre-oder here.

The Sharecropper’s Daughter speaks to my father’s actual beginnings on a Virginia tobacco farm where his family sharecropped. The title is meant to signify that both my father’s and my upbringing, though so different, are linked by a shared history that informs the way I move through the world… it’s a sonic reflection of the things we inherit. About the emotional weight that we unknowingly bestow upon the next generation; the genetic transfer of both trauma and triumph that we, both donors and beneficiaries, are tasked with reshaping into a future of our own.
