Head-Roc in the Community
Head-Roc regularly makes a positive influence in the music industry by attending high-profile community events. His frequent appearances prove his alternative perspective of the stereotypical hip hop artist.
On May 19, 2012, Head-Roc performed during Malcolm X Celebration Day in Malcolm X Park. The influential hip hop artist showcased his lyrical talent with songs from his Empower D.C. project. Rather than rapping about the usual exotic cars, expensive jewelry, and familiar nightclub scenes, Head-Roc focused on the everyday childhood struggles of coping with low-income employment. He even had his daughter provide mutual support in front of the audience.
Head-Roc also submits his thoughts in the Washington City Paper. In a post in late June, Head-Roc discussed his opinions regarding racism and the effects of the Trayvon Martin murder on African-Americans. His occasional submissions prove his desire to positively influence today’s youth.
