For nearly twenty years Head-Roc has been regarded as the best that DC Hip-Hop has to offer. Dubbed “The Mayor of DC Hip Hop”, Head-Roc has come to embody the passions, hopes and dreams of a wonderfully talented, and all too often overlooked DC Black music scene. His unparalleled ability to reach even the most finicky music fans across all genres puts him on par with well established nationally known independent progressive recording artists.
Head-Roc has had a number of solo and group effort album
releases in his career, and his songs have been featured on dozens of nationwide mix-tape and compilation CD releases over the years. Head-Roc has enjoyed performing and promoting his music across the United States as well as parts of Europe: appearing in magazine articles, being interviewed on radio stations, and delivering life changing performances for thousands of socially progressive, conscious, and independent music lovers. Head-Roc’s artistic work and activism is well respected in US Progressive and Social Justice Communities – often being invited to participate and appear at important rallies and gatherings alongside the most prominent iconic names in The Movement of our time.
Currently, Head-Roc is promoting his latest critically acclaimed release The “Empower DC” Project, working on a debut album and other projects with his Award winning Funk, Rock and Soul Band GODISHEUS (gotta-see-us), and is serving as the first ever Arts Ambassador for the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA). Head-Roc also is the author of Head-Roc’s Mouth, a occasional opinion column published by The Washington City Paper.
