After working a stage dancer for the likes of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice, E-Roc turned to the Bible for spiritual inspiration that would eventually spark his career as a motivational speaker and Christian hip-hop artist. The Vahalla, NY, native began this quest in 1994 and in the process, signed a deal with Grapetree Music Group in 1998. Resulting in the 1999 release of his debut full-length Avalanche, his second album, The Return, came out the following year. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi
