From Rick Ross’ mighty Maybach Music Group imprint – home to artists including Wale, Meek Mill and French Montana – arises the soft-spoken but hard-hitting Chicago dude known as Rockie Fresh. He caught the eye of Mr. Rozay (and Diddy’s Bad Boy, with whom he almost signed) thanks to two highly acclaimed mixtapes, 2010’s The Otherside and 2012 mixtape Driving 88. And despite his chill vibes, you could definitely say 21-year-old Rockie’s been on his grind, working with the likes of Nipsey Hussle, Curren$y and even pop-punkers Good Charlotte.
Rockie recently dropped his first Maybach mixtape, Electric Highway, on January 21 (you can download it here), along with a truly dope video for “Nobody” that shows him cruising a Delorean through a neon-hued digital future. On April 17 – the day after his 22nd birthday – Rockie Fresh will play an exclusive Scion Open Mic event in Brooklyn alongside World’s Fair, Julian Malone and DJ Getlive! The event is free but you have to win tickets – AND THE CONTEST ENDS TOMORROW! Details below.
