The great Long Island rapper and producer Roc Marciano has been kicking around the New York rap scene for more than a decade, and in recent years, he’s been a crucial player in a revitalized internet underground. Last year, he released Reloaded, one of the year’s best rap albums, and now his dessicated soul samples and scorched-earth mutters have returned on the new mixtape The Pimpire Strikes Back. The tape, which we are lucky to get for free, features production from people like Alchemist, Lord Finesse, and Madlib alongside Roc Marci himself, and Action Bronson and Meyhem Lauren contribute guest verses. Check out the whole thing below.
