About Rock Mecca:
Queens, New York has always been a hub for some of the best rap artists dating back to the Golden 80s. Emerging from the same Hip Hop hotbed that bred the likes of Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, 50 Cent and LL Cool J, Rock Mecca carries on the tradition of artists from the gritty streets of the Q-boro who paved the way with legendary anthems, innovative styles and classic albums.
Battle tested and street approved, Rock Mecca comes armed with vivid rhymes, a gritty flow and energetic delivery, elevating himself above and beyond the crop of hungry lyricists who aim to master the Bronx Science. Determined to make music without labels, the enigmatic emcee pushes the envelope and thinks outside the box to make sure he’s never boxed in, taking the music past its phase of cookie cutter monotony and into new heights of innovation and originality.
Collaborating with legendary artists like Kool Keith, Canibus, Ras Kass and Tragedy Khadafi, as well as being co-signed by DJs from coast to coast, Rock took off with an arsenal of tracks instantly recognized as quality, authentic Hip-Hop as soon as they hit the eardrum.
