Sa-Roc releases The Sharecropper’s Daughter Deluxe, adding six new tracks to her acclaimed Rhymesayers Entertainment debut, The Sharecropper’s Daughter, released last year. Available everywhere now digitally, these new songs further showcase Sa-Roc’s sharp skills as a lyricist and her gift for captivating melodies and engaging content. The Sharecropper’s Daughter Deluxe features production from Sol Messiah and Evidence, as well as a previously unreleased guest verse from MF DOOM on “The Rebirth.”
Alongside the release is a stunning music video for the deluxe edition’s lead single, “Wild Seeds.” Directed by Aliza Brugger, the video follows the lyrical themes of “Wild Seeds,” whose verses are a testament to the beauty, mysticism, and wisdom of the elders and ancestors who’ve guided and bolstered generations of Black women through history’s assault and neglect. With a title inspired by the sci-fi novel Wild Seed by visionary author Octavia Butler, the song serves as a celebration of women such as Queen Nanny, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, and many others, whose legacies inform future generations of their propensity to bloom under the harshest of conditions. “Just like wild seeds, we remain unfettered and unbroken, adding beauty and immeasurable value to a world that chooses not to acknowledge us,” Sa-Roc states, “but our very existence is the only acknowledgment we require.”
The six new tracks from The Sharecropper’s Daughter Deluxe will also be available on a special vinyl bonus LP. Available for pre-order now, and set for release on August 20, The Sharecropper’s Daughter: Bonus Vinyl will be pressed on translucent white, black & gold insomnia effect vinyl and housed in a gold foil laminated jacket with a printed record sleeve.
