DJ SOL MESSIAH is a dj hailing from Atlanta ga. In 1989 DJ SOL MESSIAH was djing in a local club called the WAREHOUSE with world reknowned LIL JON and many others. SOL MESSIAH is also the head of the UNIVERSAL ZULU NATION IN ATLANTA and the ROCK STEADY CREW/ world class breaking crew. Being the MESSIAH was very popular in hip hop he caught the eye of many club promoters in the city and in particular DALLAS AUSTIN/world class music producer. In 1991 MESSIAH partnered with AUSTIN to produce hits for TLC,BOYZ II MEN, BJORK, MICHAEL JACKSON, AND MANY MORE.

Saroc the mc hails from the southeastern area of Washington DC, a city that’s a mashup of poverty stricken hoods, a strong radical movement, and a fierce loyalty to cultural preservation. This is the cocoon from which Saroc was birthed and bred. A product of Afrikan-centered parents, Saroc developed a rebel mentality from an early age. She grew up on the music of Jimi Hendrix, Gil Scott Heron, and Earth,Wind & Fire. Her musical soundtrack was a klash of sounds, from gogo, to rock, to hip hop. This foundation began an aural quest for different sounds and concepts in music.

It wasn’t until 2002, when Saroc met Atlanta producer Sol Messiah, that she began her love affair with the mic. Armed with the lessons and musical genius of Sol Messiah, she developed a sound that was 1 part hood poetry, 2 parts otherworldly, and totally new and fresh. From subject matter ranging from melanin to pyramids, Saroc spits metaphysical ideas over melodic hip hop beats, seeking to fuse knowledge of self with great music. She seeks to create not just a couple of albums, but a full-fledged musical movement. A cultural griot, Saroc intends to reinstate the art of emceeing to its former glory, passing down the legacy 1 sixteen at a time.

MP3: Rock Mecca - "Alone Out There"

From Rock Mecca:

MP3: Rock Mecca - "Alone Out There"

If there is one gripe constantly heard on the streets and online from Hip Hop fans, it’s how the rap game has gotten soft over the past few years. Fans and artists alike clamor for a return to the rough, rugged and raw brand of Hip-Hop that most fell in love with in the first place.   That very brand of no holds barred, hard hitting Hip Hop reemerrges to the forefront on the new single by Queens’ New York’s Rock Mecca, entitled “Alone Out There”.   A hardcore Hip Hop revival, “Alone Out There” is a call out to all hardcore heads to step out of the shadows and make themselves be heard. Over a sinisted backdrop, Rock goes on a search for a breed of emcee that has long been missing in the rap game and let’s out a warning that this track is “strictly for the real”.
