Roc Marciano Named VP & Director of A&R at Man Bites Dog Records

Roc Marciano

Congrats to Marci. This is the kind of appointment that makes sense and feels organic, unlike most of the VP gigs that are handed out at the major label level.

Press release after the jump.

(April 2nd, 2013 – New York, NY) 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.”

    Niggas is disgusting weirdos.

    Got nothing to lose.

    I got everything to lose.

    Of course I bodied that Twitter – I’ve tweeted like 10 times in 4 years – but that joint had pics on it that a mentally insane PTSD-afflicted former soldier who was discharged for an unspeakable reason could potentially use to find my coordinates.

    Never.

    The greatest achievement you could ever have is trying to harm me.

    So naturally I gotta protect myself.

    When you found that Twitter you reacted like a hungry wolf that ain seen meat in three weeks.

    Dying to get at me – dying to make a move.

    Shit’s incredibly sad – the way we hung our vets out to dry.

    First we let any old asshole off the street enlist.

    Then when they present themselves and we realize they are unfit for battle, we kick them out mercilessly.

    Shit’s horrible.

    Dorner is just the beginning.

    Just watch.

    There are gonna be Dorners in every town by the time we’re fully out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    50% of the human population will be afflicted by herpes zoster before they die.

    If you have ever had a sore anywhere on your body, you’ve had herpes zoster.

    So what does the NR wolf pack do with that data?

    They call people’s kids “cum dumpsters” and “dick suckers.”

    Kids.

    These are children.

    Unfuckingreal.

    Cats need actual medications. Tranquilizers and shit.
