Rocc releases new EP album ‘Community Service’

The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Rocc has released his latest official EP album, “Community Service.” The EP album contains seven original Rocc tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Blue Collar Music Entertainment record label. Gritty, direct, and bringing urban poetry on par with the West Coast’s best, “Community Service” showcases Rocc as one of the most intriguing hip hop artists of the year so far and promises we can expect plenty more in the years to come.

Long Beach’s Rocc cites as main artistic influences Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, J Cole, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Vince Staples, and Lil Wayne. Rocc’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result which continues to keep hip-hop fans coming back for more. With an emphasis on wordplay, back beats and rock-solid bass lines, “Community Service” by Rocc has a little something for every avid hip-hop listener.

Neither is Rocc’s “Community Service” simple music for it’s own sake. The title being more literal than figurative, Rocc makes a point on his new EP to bring socially conscientious songs at a time when many think it’s needed more than ever.

My message is simple,” Rocc writes. “You can come from the hood/ghetto and still end up on top with an intelligent mindset, ready to win. No matter how much we go through in life, as long as you stay focused and positive, nothing can stop you.”

Community Service” isn’t all sunshine and empowerment, however. Rocc has a bone to pick with less sophisticated hip hop, and he picks it.

In this EP,” he says, I expose the insecurities of the average ‘hood nigga’ and these uncultured rappers, while providing light solutions that might help some of the problems in the black community.”

Like Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and Warren G before him, Rocc also identifies as an artist of the LBC, but one with a mission.

Rocc writes, “The way I see it, Compton has Kendrick – Long Beach needs one.”

“Community Service” by Rocc on the Blue Collar Music Entertainment label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans.

Rapper Esparo releases new EP ‘Moment in Time’

The rapper, songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Esparo has released his latest EP album, “Moment in Time.” The album contains eight original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Built on rhymes, packed with rhythms and showcasing the talents of one of the most intriguing young artists for 2018, “Moment in Time” proves that the underground scene has never been more exciting.

Esparo Voltaire cites as main artistic influences Meek Mill, Drake, Big Sean, and Future. Raised in the hip-hop homeland of Queens, New York, but imported to the West Coast’s LBC rap hotbed where the legendary Dogg Pound cut their teeth, Esparo’s own sound is a blend of that old-school boom-bap and contemporary lyric gymnastics which puts something on every fan’s plate.

In addition to the skills of Esparo, himself, “Moment in Time” also features performances by Lil Durk and Zeus Anderson. The work has been co-signed by DJ Bandz and was produced by the multi-platinum crew of sound engineering legends, the 808 Mafia.

Speaking of the themes of his new record, Esparo writes, “’Moment in Time’ gives listeners a personal look into a very important ‘moment’ in my journey. Artists come across ups and downs, but in the span of five months (April-August 2017) I’ve grown as an artist and built relationships with several individuals who can potentially play a huge part in my success.”

Esparo’s debut release came in the form of “BarmitzFortune,” a mixtape dropped in 2013 to local acclaim. He followed this with a sequel in 2014 which featured several artists from the Long Beach underground scene, and then another later that year, “Lucky 7.” These mixtapes have proven to have broad appeal and staying power, but none as promising and well-orchestrated as “Moment in Time.”

“Moment in Time” dropped Christmas Day, 2017. Its influence and popularity continue to grow.

“Moment in Time” by Esparo is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now. Get in early, hip hop fans.
