Maybach Music Group rapper – Rockie Fresh has landed in Mzansi ahead of his first-ever performance in our shores. Fresh will headline Puma’s #Represent698 event on Friday, 13 November 2015 at Baseline , alongside local acts Riky Rick, Jack Parow, PH Fat, Nonku Phiri, Das Kapital and Aero Manyelo. Only 698 tickets will be sold for the show.
After the local success of his first mix tape, Rockie’s Modern Life, Rockie found his way to Studio 11 in 2010 by way of his producer, a long-time client of the studio, The Gift. At this point, we started working on his The Otherside mix tape, footage of which can be viewed HERE. The Otherside turned out to be amazingly well received, and did great numbers online, setting him up for an even more successful run with his third mix tape, Driving 88. The exposure from these Studio 11 mixed projects elevated Rockie to a nationally known artist who began garnering the label attention he deserves.
RCA, Columbia, and Universal were just a few of the labels courting him for a contract. More notable, though, were Rockie’s recent label talks with both Diddy and Rick Ross. After a late night out in New York City with the record mogul, Rockie ultimately decided to sign with Ross’s Maybach Music Group just before sunrise on July 12.
