Young Chicago rapper Rockie Fresh entered the game in 2009 with his debut mixtape, Rockie's Modern Life. Fresh continued to pick up steam with 2010's The Otherside and 2011's The Otherside Redux, and then really showed us he was out to make a name for himself with 2012's excellent Driving 88. Back in July, he inked a deal with Maybach Music, who will be releasing his new tape, Electric Highway, on January 21 and his as-of-yet untitled debut LP later this year. You can watch the video for Electric Highway's lead single, "Nobody," at the bottom of this post. You can also download "Nobody" for free via a widget below (in exchange for your email address).
Rockie Fresh will be playing a pair of record release shows for Electric Highway: One at NYC's SOB's on January 23 with Lunice and another at the Bottom Lounge on February 2 with Chance the Rapper, Mark Battles, and R.O.E.. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now. All proceeds will go to benefit JDRF, a charity in effort to help juvenile diabetics.
