Last year Roc Marciano, a Long Island-based rapper, released his sophomore album Reloaded to critical acclaim. The album was ranked 6th on Spin's list of the Best 40 Hip-Hop Albums of 2012 and 4th on About.com's list. Now, Marciano is gearing up for his 2013 release which is humorously titled Marci Beaucoup. Marciano released what is likely to be his first single off of the album "Ruff Town" today which features Queensbridge rapper Cormega.
Marciano and Cormega mesh well together on this meandering track about living in a "ruff town," which they happily share with a single soulful horn. The video doesn't seem to aggressive, and focuses mostly on the two rappers as they spit on a hotel terrace. That is, until the very end.
Check out the video above, and keep an eye out for news about Marci Beaucoup due out later this year via Man Bites Dog Records.
