Whatchu know about Rockie Fresh? Is good hip-hop still out there?

Via Pitchfork:

Twenty-one year old Chicago rapper Rockie Fresh covered plenty of ground already for his age, parlaying early connections to Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump and Good Charlotte’s Madden Brothers into a deal with Rick Ross’s Maybach Music imprint. Since breaking in with 2009’s Rockie’s Modern Life, he’s been prolific enough to establish a sizable back-catalogue of entry points.

His latest single, “Superman OG”, finds Rockie sitting back in the pocket, throwing around braggadocio (“Y’all niggas Dr. Scholls/ You about to see defeat”) while Montreal producer and TNGHT member Lunice supplies a mutant of a beat, all percussive Bic flicks and chattering digital noise building to a point where the thing goes full water temple at the two-minute mark. The beat is the type of Aggro Cragged-out elbow music that would, in most cases, shed your average rapper’s dead weight.

Take a listen and, as always, your feedback is always appreciated!
