While you’re enjoying the sounds of Pimpire Strike Back, I thought I’d run through six of his finest moments before the undisputed classic Marcberg album dropped in 2010.

“Game of Death” [12" version]

Roc gets dumb over some Pete Rock drums from the first U.N. release, which was remade for the UN or U Out LP to include the rest of the crew.

P Brothers feat. Roc Marciano - “Caviar”

This Nottingham production duo were early Marcy supporters, featuring him on three outstanding tracks.

The U.N. – “Hardcore” (Revisited)


This has to rank up there with Diamond D‘s “I Went For Mine” as one of the best uses of a flute in a rap beat.

“Time Kills” feat. Dino Brave

This loop just reappeared on the first track from the new Troy Ave. album.

The U.N. - “Golden Grail”

One of Roc’s first productions, using a borrowed MPC.

“Long Time Coming” dope too. Let’s make the list eight with “Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy.”
