ARoc is an up-and-coming emcee from Inglewood, CA, who started rhyming at 16 before he eventually linked up with Neiman Johnson of YFS and 300 Entertainment in 2004.

I recently received a Soundcloud link of ARoc freestyling on his latest single “The Future” and admittedly, I was impressed by his flow complete with a ridiculous amount of braggadocio and playful wordplay over a variety of beats.
