Joe Roc is an up and coming hip hop recording artist who was born and raised in Mamaroneck, NY. Known for his intricate lyrics, smooth flow and old school rap beats, Joe Roc separates himself from the pack by being able to innovate the rap game while sticking to his roots.
In May 2017 he released his first EP Drive-Thru-Tapes which featured 6 songs, including a fan favorite “Drive Thru”. The EP gained him public recognition and the attention of J.R. McFly, founder of Musical Mercenaries Inc. After signing to the label Joe Roc released his new six track EP, Classic Roc, that features songs such as “About A Milli” and “Average Joe.”
His love for music started while driving around with his father, listening to oldies such as, Frank Sinatra and Frankie Valli. He was later introduced to rap when he received Eminem’s iconic Encore and 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Trying.
Obsessed with the art of storytelling, Joe Roc started his musical journey when he began writing poetry and free styling with his friends and other local artists. He later started turning his rhymes into songs. He began playing live shows throughout the Triborough area with other rappers.
Joe Roc continues to collaborate with other artists on the label such as Mack Swayze, Nitro and Abbey Wood. He is currently working on a new EP called Penthouse due late Summer 2018.
