MUSIC: Roc Marciano – The Sacrifice

by Reginald Duvivier


In the video you have Roc Marciano continually looking over his fresh cut in the bathroom mirror in a hotel, clips of him driving around New York City and his stock of prostitutes (labeled affectionately as Hoe 1, Hoe 2, etc in his iphone contact list). Pretty much the video is a pretty weak effort all around but the Madlib produced beat and Roc’s solid rhymes save the actual song. It’s a slice of grimy NYC New York circa 1990 as far as vibe is concerned, and it’s well worth a listen.
