For over the past ten years Head-Roc has been regarded as the best that DC Hip Hop has to offer!
Dubbed “The Mayor” of the DC Hip Hop, Head-Roc has come to embody the passions, hopes and dreams of a wonderfully talented and all too often overlooked DC music scene. His unparalleled ability to reach music lovers of all tastes puts him on par with established national recording artists in both music creation and live performance.
In 2004 Head-Roc released his solo debut The Return of Black Broadway to rave reviews and top
chart position on college and underground radio. In support of this album, Head-Roc toured
Europe and the US West Coast, doing interviews, appearing on radio stations and delivering life
changing performances for thousands of fans. This grass roots movement helped to earn Head-Roc the 2005 Washington Area Music Association award for Hip Hop Album of the Year.
The Head-Roc War Machine (Head-Roc, featuring Noyeek the Grizzly) has been wowing audiences nationwide with their high impact live performance, rocking stages alongside national Hip Hop, Alt/Indy, Soul and Punk Rock acts – and converting countless witnesses into believers along the way. Head-Roc’s honest and relevant lyrics are a refreshing change in this current era of corporate Hip-Hop exploitation. His music has inspired many in the progressive movement to rethink Hip Hop’s potential for achieving social change and he is widely regarded as one of the
key voices in this movement – setting the perfect stage to release his sophomore solo album: Negrophobia!
