Sa-Roc is the stage name of Assata Perkins, a Washington, DC-raised, Atlanta-based MC that has carved out her own distinctive lane through a combination of airtight wordplay and intelligent concepts. Over the course of her illustrious career, she’s released a series of independent releases and performed alongside the likes of Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, and Atmosphere. This year she released "Forever" and "Goddess Gang," two stunning singles that serve as an appetizer for her forthcoming official debut full-length album that's due out early 2019 via Rhymesayers. The album will be co-produced by her longtime music partner, Atlanta-based DJ/producer Sol Messiah. Their collaborative guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a top-shelf sonic journey through hip-hop both new and old, with choice explorations into timeless psych, soul, R&B, funk, trip-hop, and more.
