Peep the new release from Pavy entitled, "Audio Heroin," which features Sir Michael Rocksover a KEEYNOTE produced bump, and serves as first single to be released off Pavy's upcoming project, Theory of Defiance. Look for TOD to make it's official debut come September 17th. Much more to come off the project upon release, so keep it locked.
Sir Michael Rocks' new mixtape, Lap Of Lux, dropped yesterday and we had it bumpin' loud in the office all the way through in the afternoon. We weren't the only ones as Lap Of Lux made waves trending on Twitter. I posted the mixtape but wanted to blog about it as well and give it even more shine. About a handful of tracks in came one that immediately piqued my interest - "NWO". It's probably because the NWO had a big impact on a growing Sgt. Tibs (this was as traumatic moment as any back in the day) and I was wondering if there would be any direct reference. Well, there wasn't, but this track does epitomize both vintage Mikey Rocks and growing Mikey Rocks.
What jumped out at me the most throughout Lap Of Lux, was Rocks' growth in experimenting with new flows. "NWO" has a mix of a few within the song itself. It's his faster flow, starting with his allusion to an oscelot (and reminding him of his talk with us on animals), that really upped my attention to another level. I was left wanting more and was happy to see even more fresh switch ups of the flow in the couple of tracks after. Just take note of how he pronounces and emphasizes certain sounds. Not everything is rapped in his classic monotone, which I still dig by the way, and I'd say Rocks was successful in all of these fresh, subtle, yet and growth-indicating deliveries. Take note in this track above and, again, the whole mixtape, Lap Of Lux, here.
We're proud to present our newest interview, taking place at GWHQ, with Toothpick Clique leader, 0.5 of The Cool Kids, and a fast-rising solo artist as most recently evidenced by last week's Premier Politics 1.5 - Sir Michael Rocks! We broke down the interview into three main parts: music, fashion, and... animals as Mikey sits down with our newest correspondent: Palita.
First, the music. SMR is excited to share some of the features appearing on his next solo project. Among them? How about Mac Miller, Casey Veggies, and Jeremih? That's just a few, in addition to some of the usual suspects, and some surprises to be revealed when the time is proper. Lookin' forward to this.
Then get to know Mikey beyond the music. He speaks on his alignment in the fashion game and spits some truth about the industry after his experience within it. Plus, did you know Sir Michael Rocks owns a marmoset?! Yup, at one point Mikey wanted to become a zoologist, and the animal lover talks all about the animals he wants to own in the future. Lastly, #TeamGowhere has been reppin' the 'Buss Down Dance' well since the tail end of 2011 after "Cell Dope". I mean, we really break it out in celebratory fashion all the time. So it's only right that Sir Michael Rocks teaches us the proper way to buss down! That fun video from the office is intermixed in the interview so press play and enjoy this fun look at Sir Michael Rocks above!
