Rapping with the weight of the world on their shoulders, hip hop crew ROAR create a serious set of songs that are filled with apocalyptic angst. From the devil's deceptions in 'To The Rescue', through questions about what constitutes a real man in 'Flowers In The Ghetto', and the cyclical nature of generational curses which sees men desert their families in "Where's My Daddy At?" ROAR pull no punches dealing with the big issues of our day. There are lighter moments when the crew take time out to demonstrate (heir vocal versatility on "ABC" and have fun on "Profound Clowns", but mainly this is dark and deadly serious, "2 Easy" is a dramatic tale of homicide, revenge and a life gone wrong whilst "Conversation" is a father giving advice to a son. With creative tracks, and the crew choosing to deal with real issues, ROAR do the business.
