Rockie Fresh - What’s the Hurry

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
The Cartoonz (The Gift & LPeezy)
Album:
Otherside

If patience is a virtue, then hip-hop hopefuls who put in years on the grind for the mere possibility of a shot at the big league must be saints… or lunatics. No pun intended. While first-time featuree Rockie Fresh is still a relatively, well, fresh face, having entered the game in ‘07, he’s been around plenty long enough for the sheer enormity and uncertainty of his undertaking to sink in; on his latest single, the ironically-titled What’s the Hurry, he faces those doubts head-on. The Cartoonz (The Gift & LPeezy) man the boards, flipping a sample from Hide & Seek singer Imogen Heap’s Have You Got It in You into a pensive backdrop for the Windy City native’s reflective rhymes. Despite the toll his work’s taken on his physical and mental, the artist concludes that he has indeed got the right stuff to succeed: “I’m here – tell ‘em this is my year / and n*ggas better stop it ‘cause it’s obvious I got it.” Agree with Rockie’s self-assessment? In addition to grabbing a copy of his latest street album, Otherside, when it drops on December 14, you’ll want to keep it locked to DJBooth for his Exclusive Freestyle Series contribution, coming soon!
