Had to shine the spotlight on this big collab off the recently made available Self Made 3 as Wale, J. Cole, Rockie Fresh, and Meek Mill all combine for this groove "Black Grammys". Certainly worth a listen.
My favorite verses (in order): Rockie Fresh, Wale, J. Cole, Meek Mill
Looks like Rick Ross linked up with World Star Hip-Hop to release the album stream of their new MMG compilation Self Made Vol. 3. The album drops September 17th, and is going to feature Ross, Wale, Meek Mill, Stalley, Rockie Fresh (Chi-Town stand up!!), Gunplay, Pusha-T, J. Cole, French Montana, Fabolous, and more. Checkout the tracklisting below.
A new collab from Vic Mensa off his upcoming project, INNANETAPE, as he's flanked by not only the Chi-Town homie Rockie Fresh on a guest verse but also Beldina on the hook and Boi-1da & The Maven Boys on the beat. Good stuff all around as the emcees aren't overshadowed by the production and there's a clear hustler theme to the lyrics. After all, "Time Is Money". And, as Vic says (via his father), "Make money, but the money you make don't make you."
Giftz enlists King Louie and Rockie Fresh to bring you "F*ck Em All". The beauty of "F*ck Em All" was that it was created organically on the spot during a late night "Position Of Power" studio session this summer w/ King Louie(Lawless/Sony) and Rockie Fresh(MMG) in Chicago. Stand out producer C-Sick handled production duties.
Ricky Dubs and SRNC Management, the Molemen drop "Chicago Sessions: Volume.1" a mixtape showcasing the best talent and the best music out in the city of Chicago at this moment. A great pickup to dive into different artists from the city of Chicago and to get familiar with the different talent that our great city has to offer. Chicago is at its peak in Hip-Hop with a boom of upstarts and veterans all making a name for themselves. Enjoy!
I'm overall rockin' with the new single from Chicago's own, who lets the listeners know about the hometown as well. It stems from the song's title and overall message "God Is Great". I automatically resonate with that, as I'm sure many many others will. Where I don't vibe with it like some may is I feel the song's balance is a little too skewed towards the materialistic and Rockie's slow-paced delivery. I know a lot of people rock with the latter, for him specifically and in general, but I'm just more of a fan of fast flows, that's all.
Props to Boi-1da on the instant heater of a production and Rockie for this, my favorite line:
