Typically, nobody knows how he wants the song to sound better than the artist himself. Rarely does Roc Marciano fail to impress with his words but on “I Shot The King” he handles the production duties too, employing hollow horns and a slow drumline to build a perfect stage for his brooding narrative. And judging from the diversity of topics that Roc covers here, it sounds like he rapped just about everything that came to his mind while he created the record.
“I Shot The King” is slated to be on the deluxe edition Reloaded, Roc’s quickly approaching LP. November 13th is the big day.
