The, well, fresh ass 20 year-old Chicago MC Rockie Fresh finally gifted us with Driving 88 yesterday after essentially teasing listeners with tidbits of the project here and there of late. Artists Phil Ade, Casey Veggies and Chicago’s own, King Louie, make guest appearances on 88. Fresh gets production from The Gift, The Kickdrums and Blended Babies, the last of which has gotten all types of attention on my iTunes lately. I loved his rookie mixtape, Rockie’s Modern Life, and I’m sure Driving 88 will further cement Rockie Fresh’s status as a young MC that Chicago–and the rest of the country–needs to look out for, if they haven’t already.
