Rocks FOE - Legion EP
Info on Croydon's shadowy firespitter & beat sculptor Rocks FOE is scarce. He poses a unique combination attack, with a rap style that combines the catch-all hooks of grime with the sheer lyrical dominance of classic US rappers like Pharaohe Monch & GZA. Dig into Rocks lyrical tidal wave and you find arcane religious references and Anime characters punctuated with frequent direct knock out put-downs. He blends the obscure with the instant to future proof his verses. Every beat on Legion was also produced by the man himself. Never one to stand still, he chops and grafts Grime and Hip Hop with DNA from Horror composers. With support from 6Music through 1Xtra to pirates Rocks unorthodox rise is set to continue.
