Rockie Fresh came onto the scene roughly three years ago after graduating high school, dropping out of college, and dedicating himself to the music.  Perhaps more than anyone that we’ve seen move up through the Chicago ranks, Rockie has had a fluid vision, plan, and team throughout those years, which has ultimately led him to a record deal with Maybach Music Group and a position as one of Hip Hop’s top rising stars.  Rockie laid out a blueprint and he stuck to it.  He became a voice for other young kids from the suburbs with city ties, those that love Hip Hop but are just as influenced by Fall Out Boy.  He took his own upbringing and found a comfort zone within himself that made him appear just as natural in studio with Josh Madden as with King Louie.  Today Rockie will release Electric Highway, his most high profile and anticipated mixtape to date.  Before the new project drops, we take a lot at 10 Essential Rockie Fresh records for fans old and new, 10 songs that are defining of his catalog and the man himself.
