Digital Freshness last night at Beauty Bar was a smash. I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and partying
Yesterday Rockie Fresh hit the studio with Big Homie D.O.E. to finish up their new track, “Fly Like This”. In this piece, Rockie and D.O.E. tell us how the track came together, and give updates on their respective projects. Look for the track soon on RubyHornet.com.
Lupe Fiasco once said, “Really love my city, and I hope that G-D bless it.” And bless he did, uh, musically at least. While Chicago got dissed from the Olympic Committee, saw their parking meters jacked, and all around sports failures, at least the arts and culture scene put forth something to be proud of. To celebrate the year that was in music, fashion, and culture, we put together a survey to highlight the best of Chicago 2009. We invited a wide variety of our friends, colleagues, and associates to tell us their favorite artists, release, DJs, clubs, clothing brands etc from ’09. A Sample of our respondents include Naledge, Willy Joy, Million $ Mano, Suli, Anna Hovet, Krabby of Saint Alfred’s, Brian Nevado, Matt Boy White, Scheme, Michael Kolar, and many many more, so, if you don’t like the list send them the hate mail hahaha.. Enjoy!
He’s too hipster. He’s just trendy. I just don’t like his music. Say what you will about the kid, and all those previous statements have been, but Rockie Fresh has definitely created a buzz for himself. His point was proven December 15th when he released his debut mixtape, Rockie’s Modern Life, which recorded over 1,000 downloads in just one day. Not too bad for a cat who just started rhyming in 2006.
“All of these new age rappers are changing the direction of the genre and creating something for our generation to call our own,” said Rockie on the new generation of artists to hit the Hip Hop. RH correspondent, Ashydakid, caught up with Rockie Fresh for a full interview, digging into his family background, the new generation he identifies with, and the importance of versatility. Check it put right below and see why another thing people are saying is, “that kid’s got talent.”
