ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shorty Roc
Da Life’s Illest Mc

Brooklyn has had its share of groundbreaking entertainers. First there was Big Daddy Kane and MC Lyte, then there was The Notorious BIG and Lil Kim, and next to put his mark down is the infamous Shorty Roc.

Shorty Roc burst on the scene in 2003 with his underground smash “Ten Gay Commandments”, his rendition of the classic DJ Premiere produced Biggie joint “Ten Crack Commandments”. He took his music to the streets with the banger and performed at gay clubs such as, Langston’s, The Legendary Warehouse, The Clubhouse, and Sunday Nights at The Lab. He gained underground praise for his street delivery, catchy punch lines and his heavy performance. In Summer of 2004, he put his first CD to the streets, “The Mixtape: Jackin’ Beats, which he put hot flows on top of some of the hottest hits, which made its way through the NY gay circuit. The mixtape contained classics like the sexual “Bust that”, the dancy “Two Step”, and the sensual “If I have nothing else”. The mixtape also contained songs like “Nigga Please”, “Holla Back Son”, and “This is my quest”, which expressed the troubles of dating, society, and growing rate of HIV and AIDS. Also that summer, he participated in the gay hip-hop festival “Peace Out East” in NY and “Peace Out East” in Atlanta. Shorty has also performed a showcase at the legendary “Nuyorican Poets Café”, where the crowd was very diverse and still caught the ears and attention from all. In February 2005, he had a listening party sponsored by GMAD (Gay Men of African Descent) and participated in there Friday night forum, where he spoke on the panel about black gay men and there careers. During that year he’s performed at other venues like, The Bowery Poets Café, and the campus of the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance. Shorty made his second appearance at “Peace Out East”, which was held at the Nuyorican Poets Café, premiering his controversial joint, “Rapper’s Delight ‘06”. Roc also participated in a documentary titled “Homophobia in Hip Hop”, which is currently being screened at college campuses across the country. After a small break, Shorty Roc is back with his second effort “Personal”, which will be available right here on this site as well as CDBaby.com. This year Shorty has been touring taking his music to different cities and summer events. He’s performed at pride events, for Philadelphia Black Pride, Memphis Black Pride, and returned to Brooklyn for POCC’s Family Day Picnic for a powerful performance in Commodore Barry Park. Shorty was also featured as a performer at Harmonica Sunbeam’s Benefit Party which was held at Langston’s. Not to mention, 2 Boat rides: 1, which was sponsored by Friends at Hudson River Park which was held to for young teens in the effort to get them off the streets and 2, FACES 2nd Annual Erotica boat ride. A small listening session was also sponsored by GMHC in effort to help promote the upcoming CD. Shorty has also made a a showcase appearance at Groove for MuseworkNY and at Dillon’s Lounge for IA Universal and Molina Entertainment. Shorty Roc will be making more appearances and performances as well as 2 parties to help celebrate and promote the new CD.

Shorty Roc believes his purpose is to talk to the gay community about issues in their lifestyle such as, safe sex, dating, troubles with society, and pride for self. With all of this, he plans to be the poster boy for the gay community and the emerging gay hip hop circuit. Shorty Roc is said to be one of the fewest MC’s able to flow to various types of beats and smash any audience. Is the world ready for “Da Life’s Illest MC”, I think not!
