This has been one of the strongest weeks for music releases in recent memory. We got new music from Kanye & Jay, Rockie Fresh, Curren$y with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean, Hoodie Allen, H.O.P.E., Huey Mack, Sonny Shotz and Royce da 5’9″.

Think Chicago has enough rap superstars already in artists such as Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Common and Twista? Well, think again and let me introduce you to 19 year old Rockie Fresh. An upcoming artist with tight rhymes and fresh beats, Rockie Fresh is destined for greatness. In 2009 Rockie Fresh released his debut project titled, Rockie’s Modern Life which went unheard by most including me. But upon the release of his new tape The Otherside, which he released in December, he started to catch everyone’s attention. The Otherside had 15,000 downloads in the first week and 30,000 overall. It has been praised for its overall value and depth. Since then Rockie Fresh has opened on tour for artists such as Rick Ross, Big Sean, The Cool Kids, Twista and Chip Tha Ripper. Come and see why everyone should mention Rockie Fresh with the list of other Chicago rap giants.
