Rockie Fresh's mindset has changed since signing to Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group label on July 2012. "It's more so to motivate people. If they're listening to me they probably have dreams and goals they want to reach too," Rockie told The Juice. "I kind of want to make the soundtrack for them to go reach them. That's why I make music."
Rockie Fresh will release his first mixtape as an MMG artist, "Electric Highway," on January 21 at 3pm EST via DatPiff and HotNewHipHop, but The Juice has an exclusive preview of the mixtape for the day. Check out snippets of "Electric Highway" below.
"Electric Highway" showcases the Chi-town rapper true to his musical roots. "That's something Ross wanted me to do as well," Rockie continued to say. "I kept the DeLorean, connected to my last tape 'Driving 88,' to let fans know that this is a futuristic situation and it kind of adds to the flavor."
