We’ve had our eye on young Chicago emcee Rockie Fresh for a long time. His come up has certainly been impressive, one that recently culminated with a signing to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group in the fall of 2012. A major league affiliation with a label like MMG changes everything. An expanded platform, fan base, and roster of talent to collaborate with means the stakes have never been higher for Fresh. He now faces that unavoidable Catch-22 in music of trying to maintain day one fans while simultaneously growing his brand and bank account.
Electric Highway features a number of guest appearances from folks like Ross, Curren$y, Nipsey Hussle, and Sasha Go Hard. The project also hosts a bevy of talented young producers in the form of Lunice, Boi1da, The Gift, and Lifted. This may be the last full-length release we see from Rockie before he gets put on that official major label release schedule, so take advantage and download this gratis effort while you can.
