Man Bites Dog Records is excited to announce that rapper Roc Marciano will join the label in the role of Vice President and Director of A&R. The partnership brings together one of rap’s most respected independent artists with a label renowned as a driving force behind quality independent music.
Over the past several years, Man Bites Dog Records, headed by label founder R.M.L., has established a dominant presence in the music world, serving as a springboard for some of the most talented artists in independent hip-hop, with releases from Killah Priest, Vast Aire, Copywrite, Double A.B., and more. That string of notable releases has continued over the past 12 months, including albums from Stu Bangas & Vanderslice, MHz Legacy, and others. This spring’s offerings will include an EP, Horsepower, from Eddie B. & Harry Fraud, Illogic & Blockhead’s collaborative LP, Capture The Sun, and break-out rapper Hayze’s The Smoker’s Section mixtape. But perhaps most vitally, Man Bites Dog Records will release Roc Marciano’s next project, Marci Beaucoup.
“I know fans are really excited about that project,” says R.M.L. about Marci Beaucoup, “and for good reason, too. What I’ve heard so far is next level.” In his new role, Marciano, who has guested on a number of previous Man Bites Dog albums, will also continue to be featured on label releases. “You can count on some very dope guest spots from Roc on some of our newer projects coming out,” says R.M.L.
While there’s plenty to be excited about for fans anticipating new music from Marciano, this partnership is as much about what Marciano can offer in the board room as in the vocal booth. “I think having Roc as an owner and an adviser to the label is a smart investment for both brands,” explains R.M.L. “He is very savvy with how he brands himself, and that’s something we can really learn from.”
Marciano will take on a variety of leadership responsibilities in his new role with Man Bites Dog Records, including signing new talent, offering repertoire and marketing insight, and offering his input throughout the label’s production process. “He brings an ear for music to the table and I think that makes him an amazing judge of talent,” says R.M.L. “He knows what it takes to make classic material.”
Zilla Rocca & The Shadowboxers drop the Roc Marciano assisted single “Young Blood,” produced by Has-Lo. This single will be followed up with the April 9th release of “Stormy Monday,” featuring both The Kid Daytona and Has-Lo, in promotion for their forthcoming LP, No Vacation For Murder. “Young Blood” is now available on iTunes.

Brooklyn’s T.H.E.M. Recordings unveil their latest signee Innocent?, who kicks off the album campaign for his forthcoming Love It Or Hate It LP, with the visuals for the Roc Marciano assisted single “Time For Change.” Production for the single is supplied by France’s Alterbeats crew who blend triumphant horn stabs and hard drums alongside DJ Modesty’s scratch chorus that fuses quotables from M.O.P., and A.G. Directed by Donald Robinson Cole III, the video depicts both emcees swapping verses in front of various Manhattan backdrops as they declare their resolution to stop waiting for change and make it happen themselves. Love It Or Hate It is scheduled for an early third quarter 2013 release and is set to include guest appearances from label mate Mic Handz, Roc Marciano and Tha Rockness Monstah, among others. Let the trials of Innocent? vs. The People commence…
