Back in 2010, the Long Island rap veteran Roc Marciano released the stunning Marcberg, a spare, haunted, word-drunk voyage into old New York tough-guy rap weirdness. The self-produced album slowly picked up steam and found cult-classic status. Tomorrow, Marciano releases its follow-up Reloaded, which pushes his deep-concentration modus operandi even further. We’ve already heard early tracks “76” and “Nine Spray,” and now we can hear the whole thing. It’s below, and it’s excellent.
Reloaded is out tomorrow on Decon.
