Rob Markman continues to display his love for the culture of Hip-Hop by paying homage with his new song, ‘96 Roc-A-Fella Logo.
With production from TUAMIE, remixing ‘95 Bad Boy Logo, a track from Brooklyn’s very own Skyzoo from his 2017 album release, Peddler Themes which was originally sampled from Faith Evans’ blissfully marinated 1995 song, Soon As I Get Home. The Brooklyn emcee promptly delivers a lyrical verse illustrating his life viewing, listening, and learning the business aspect of the hip-hop music industry from his predecessors in 1996. ‘96 Roc-A-Fella Logo is a tribute to how Jay-Z and Damon Dash changed the music game when they started Roc-A-Fella Records as a joint venture by splitting the cost and profit without signing to a major label. One of my favorite bars from ‘96 Roc-A-Fella Logo places us listeners back in time as Rob Markman raps:
“Room full of execs, Dame Dash spazzin’ Feeling like everything we want, we could have it. This our shit, you just a quarter water bastard”
Damon Dash, co-founder of Roc-A-Fella records at the time was unaware about a marketing meeting that was being held by Def Jam, dealing with his artist at the time, Jay-Z, which Dash found disrespectful and treacherous, creating an iconic moment in hip-hop history. Markman’s stylistic assertive delivery and flow creates a great hip-hop tale that Roc-A-Fella Records wasn’t just a music label, it became a lifestyle; having everybody throwing up the “Roc”, desiring a Benz and Roc-A-Fella chain!
