A-Roc & A Hard is a Hip-Hop band with a Rock vibe here to give people a good vibe. We appeal to a wide variety of audiences and shut it down on that stage! We are made up of different ethnicity's and backgrounds but come together to bridge two genres together in a nice blend.


A-Roc is an up and coming Hip-Hop artist based out of the Inland Empire located in Southern California. He is making a name for himself by bringing the new sound of Hip-Hop. Current state of Hip-Hop doesn’t promote lyricist but just a hot hook. A-Roc is looking to bring both back to the game. He and his close nit friends have been in the lab producing music to show the world. “I want to bring good music to the forefront and show that there is still hope to resurrect Hip-Hop back to its former self.” A-Roc states.

With only a few years under his belt as far as rapping, A-Roc has been doing shows and tearing the house down like he was a seasoned vet. Incorporating infectious beats and high energy in his routine the crowd can’t help but get into the show. A-Roc says he loves to perform and give the crowd and awesome show. Recently A-Roc has been performing with a LIVE BAND!!! Fusing a little bit of hip-hop and rock!!!

2008 marked the year that it will all began, with A-Roc dropping his 1st mixtape, "The Start-up", and woking on his debut album tentatively called “From the Ground Up” due out in 2009. Also A-Roc was nominated as one of the Best New Artist out of the Inland Empire. He has been working hard on it with his team of producers of UPS Musik and his engineer. He’s looking to make his mark anyway that he can. He is full of drive, determination and passion. A-Roc states, “With my influences being Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West there is no way that I can fail. I try mold myself from these successful people, but put my own spin on things.”

Keep your eyes and ears open for this star in the making.
