ROC MARCIANO / Reloaded [2012]

It's not as strong as Marcberg but East Coast rap artist Roc Marciano's 2012 follow-up album Reloaded is pretty damned fine.  
Sprinkled with delicate bass lines, funky guitars, soothing piano playing all layered over a bed of soul that paints pictures of late night clubs and flashy penthouses.  Marciano has a wonderful way with words, sadly the themes and subjects he explores are kind of one-sided and dull.  This throwback to '90's hip-hop is a breath of fresh air in a genre flooded by too many glitzier acts.
