stepbros[1] Harold Stallworth is like the hip-hop version of Nicky Tarantino.

Roc Marciano’s guest features can be unremarkable. His style is a bit too esoteric to gel with D-list underground acts. Even most of his collaborations with like-minded up-and-comer Action Bronson have suffered from a somewhat reluctant chemistry, like haphazardly splicing scenes from The Mack and Black Dynamite. With that said, it was refreshing to find that the Step Brothers—a rap group comprised of Los Angeles production gurus Alchemist and Evidence—challenged Roc to tailor his guest feature on their debut LP, Lord Steppington, to a gambling anthem titled “See The Rich Man Play.”

The Step Brothers dole out casino stories to surprisingly great effect; Roc follows suit and shamelessly employs the term “male enhancement.” All is right with the world.
