The Sharecropper’s Daughter is Sa-Roc‘s debut album for Rhymesayers Entertainment. She’s one of modern rap’s most illustrious and reliably excellent storytellers, linking her personal history to the wider world – this latest single, Deliverance, is produced by label mate Evidence.
“The Sharecropper’s Daughter speaks to my father’s actual beginnings on a Virginia tobacco farm where his family sharecropped,” reveals Sa-Roc. “The title is meant to signify that both my father’s and my upbringing, though so different, are linked by a shared history that informs the way I move through the world…
“It’s a sonic reflection of the things we inherit. About the emotional weight that we unknowingly bestow upon the next generation; the genetic transfer of both trauma and triumph that we, both donors and beneficiaries, are tasked with reshaping into a future of our own.”
Guest features on The Sharecropper’s Daughter include Saul Williams, Styles P, Ledisi, Black Thought, and Chronixx.
