New Mixtape: Rockie Fresh - Driving 88

I confess: this is a little old to be considered a "new mixtape". Still, Rockie Fresh (not A$AP Rocky, not Roc Marciano, not Sir Michael Rocks)'s latest offering deserves all of the attention it can muster. The 20-year old Chicago native comes with an energetic, new-school to the definition approach that fans of the new wave of "swag rap" rappers will surely appreciate. He perfectly rides his also perfectly picked beats. Really, the great thing about Rockie Fresh is that he doesn't stay on a particular style... he can go from swag rap of the highest quality to introspective self- revelations of a 20-year old Chicagoan trying to make it in the rap game. Hopefully this tape will elevate Rockie's buzz to the next level and maybe catch him a co-sign or two from fellow Chicago rappers. A Rockie Fresh/Rhymefest collaboration sounds awfully good right about now.
