He’s a relaxed and effortlessly cool presence on his songs, but Chicago rapper Rockie Fresh never stops grinding. Today, Rockie announces Destination Deluxe, an expanded edition of his debut album, coming later this month. His debut album after a series of well-received mixtapes, Destination is a supremely self-assured effort by an artist making the exact type of music he wants to make. With over 30 million streams to date across platforms, the album includes “Feelings Hurt”, featuring 24hrs and Rockie’s frequent collaborator Casey Veggies, and the smooth R&B-flavored love song “Must Be”, a Chris Brown-featuring single that recently surpassed 20 million streams. Featuring five new tracks, including the recent single “Let It Be”, Destination Deluxe arrives on May 29th via Rostrum Records.
Along with the announcement of the deluxe edition, Rockie shares “I Forgot”, his confident new single. Produced by Young Kellz, the song gets its power from a stuttering 808 pattern, which Rockie nimbly navigates with a laid-back flow. On the track, Rockie plays the role of a veteran, giving out priceless game: “I don’t talk to none of these n****s, I handle my business.” The new single is the latest salvo in a busy couple months for Rockie, which also saw him drop the glistening “VS Ideas” single and the video for “Make Moves”, again featuring his Rostrum labelmate 24hrs.
