Roc Marciano Named VP Of A&R At Man Bites Dog Records

Roc Marciano will be a part-owner and adviser in the label with releases by Copywrite, MHz, Eddie B & Harry Fraud and Esoteric.

Long Island, New York emcee/producer Roc Marciano can now add record executive to his resume. The Hempstead native will now assume the role of VP of A&R at Virginia-based Man Bites Dog Records. The label roster includes Copywrite, Eddie B, and Diggaz With Attitude. Additionally, Roc is planning to release his third solo album, Marci Beaucoup later this year on the indie label.

"I know fans are really excited about that project," said label CEO Ryan 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 [Records] 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."

He continued, "I think having Roc as an owner and an adviser to the label is a smart investment for both brands," explained R.M.L. "He is very savvy with how he brands himself, and that's something we can really learn from."

A former Busta Rhymes protege and member of Flipmode Squad, Roc released Marcberg in 2010 and Reloaded in 2012. The latter was co-executive produced by Alchemist.

Years ago, Brooklyn, New York emcee Torae was named head A&R at New York-based Soul Spazm Records. In the 2000s, Jim Jones and more recently, Young Jeezy, have held the position at Atlantic Records.

    Congrats to the god. It's been a long road. Too bad you skipped more than half of his come up as an artist during the 'lost decade'. After parting ways with Bus circa '99, Schott Free & I signed Roc and his group The UN to a demo deal at LOUD Records. That album was later released on World Records/456 Ent. circa '03. In '05/'06, Roc recorded his 1st solo album deal to 456/Fontana/Universal. Although, the 456 venture folded, Roc released the Marceberg album on his own through Fat Beats and set the foundation for a budding solo career as an artist and a producer. Hope the A&R gig is a good fit. Ready to hear some heat from the Terrace Ave. minions. lol
