Rockie Fresh should be thrown into the discussion for next best rappers. His latest mixtape, Otherside, recently came out (Download here). Overall one of the better mixtapes I have heard of late as the beats are dope, and the rhyming is nice hip-hop.
Below are three of my favorites by Rockie Fresh. Two of them sample other songs but in the sense that he doesn’t rely on the sampled instrumental in his songs (much like Chiddy Bang and Hoodie Allen).
Samples the Red Hot Chili Peppers song of the same name:
Otherside (Feat. Rich Hil)
Nice guitar riff and good hook for a relaxed hip-hop track:
The Worth (Feat. Mike Golden)
Samples Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”:
Do The Dance
