Biography

Fes Roc’s style could be compared to hustle in the rap game; instead it’s a customized contribution to the listener. Hailing from Plymouth Roc (or Plymouth Road) on Detroit’s Westside, Fes Roc began penning rhymes in the 5th grade. In high school Fes was one of the founding members of the rap group F. O. D. (Fingers of Death) with fellow members Mischief, Red, Phil, and Elzhi. Fes and the rest of the F.O.D. members were also a part of Detroit’s legendary HIP HOP SHOP era, along with artists, Phat Kat, 5 Elements, DJ Houseshoes, DJ Dez, 31 Flavors (Flavas?), Biochemists, D12, and Slum Village.
During that era F. O. D. stormed the college scene with their single called “#2 pencils,” which became the number one requested song on college radio. In the late 90’s F.O.D. disbanded to pursue solo careers. Fes found other avenues and ways to contribute to the Detroit scene by working in urban promotions and marketing. Despite his try at other avenues, Fes never stopped writing rhymes. After some persistence from his peers, Fes recorded a track for Nick Speed's "D-Tour" album entitled “Glisten”. “D-Tour” featured other tracks with local and nation wide emcees. When fellow F.O.D. member Elzhi put together his album “The Preface,” Fes was asked to be featured on the track called “The Science". Fes has also been featured on “Concious Gangsta" an album by fellow Detroit artist Big A. The song “So Humble” along side Miz Korona is a song about remaining humble even though he is on the rise to the top.
With the flame re-kindled for recording Fes co-founded KicSounds Entertainment along with members Illite, D-Roc and Zhao-Ski. Fes Roc will be releasing his EP on January 16, 2010 at The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, and a much anticipated album later in 2010. Please stay tuned.....K.I.C.(keep it classic)
