ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Written and recorded over the span of 11 days, The “Black Leon” Project is a rare cathartic lyrical masterpiece work from Head-Roc, “The Mayor of DC Hip-Hop”.

Produced top to bottom by Legendary Washington, DC Metropolitan area Hip-Hop/Funk/Soul super producer *Black ink, The Black Leon Project is a compilation of the following:

Track listing
1. Black Leon (feat. DJ Eskimo)
Head-Roc’s Battle Cry and clarion call to fight, contain, and eliminate Pop Culture’s global influence.

2. C’mon Home
An overture/invitation to those who abandoned us (Hip-Hop anchored in Black Love) at the turn of the century (2000) to “C’mon Home!”.

3. Black Rock Star Super Hero
Head-Roc’s official theme song and the title of his 4th Solo Release: ‘The Black Rock Star Super Hero Music Street Tape LP’.

4. Write My Life (feat. Noyeek The Grizzly Bear)
Continuing the grand tradition of Head-Roc LP releases featuring none other than Noyeek the Grizzly Bear of Infinite Loop/A.R.K. (The Package)(ca. 2004).

5. Love the Way She Dance
The Right and Proper way to compose and record a Soul filled lyrically tantalizing Sexy Love Song in the 21st Century.

6. Bully (feat. DJ Eskimo)
Amalgamated encounters with unsuspecting Bullies; fused into one fascinating Story where being a “Black Rock Star Super Hero” comes in handy to “Save Our People.”

7. Move On
The only logical sure-fire remedy for a Broken Heart - no matter the catalyst or circumstance that lead to one’s Broken Heartedness.

8. Manifesto
Head-Roc’s ratified Constitution.

9. Head-Roc Worldwide
“Sometimes I gotta remind Negus who the Fuck I am,” – Head-Roc

10. INVANCIBLE
An autobiographical account of Head-Roc’s Life and Times as an artist working in the music industry since “retiring from The Plantation in 2004.”
