Fans of West Coast underground hip-hop know Roc C for his debut mic appearance on the 2004 Oh No single Move Pt. 2, produced by J Dilla. Rocs stand-out verse and cameo in the songs video lead to his own deal with Stones Throw Records. As the latest MC from the prolific Oxnard, CA crew (Lootpack, Dudley Perkins, Oh No, M.E.D.) to join the labels roster, Roc is making a lot of noise right out the gate. His first single, Dont Stop an Oh No-produced slab of infectious trunk funk was featured on EA Sports Fight Night Round 3 video game.

With influences ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to MC Eiht, Roc aims to transcend the usual hip-hop categories. Roc rhymes as therapy, venting the demons of a background shaped by gang rivalries, poverty, jail and mortality. The result is one of Stones Throws most street-oriented albums to date. Features production by Oxnard family: Oh No, DJ Romes and Kan Kick. The diverse list of guest MCs includes Oh No, Dudley Perkins, Pok Dogg, Glasses Malone, J Ro, Chino XL, Bizzy Bone and Aloe Blacc.
