[Hip-Hop] Sir Michael Rocks – Money Came

Earlier today, Chi-town’s Sir Michael Rocks let loose a dope new track as he prepares to drop a project in the coming weeks. “Money Came” is a pretty encompassing representation of Sir Michael’s talents from his bravado-filled vocals to his simple, but meaningful and original, lyricism. The addicting, 808-backed production of Choo Jackson drives this one keeping your head nodding through out. Enjoy, grab a free download below and look out for Banco, out soon.

[Hip-Hop] Sir Michael Rocks – Can’t Hide It (ft. Rockie Fresh)

Sir Michael Rocks, a recent addition to Jet Life Recordings, teams up with fellow Chi-town native Rockie Fresh for the second single off his upcoming solo album. Sir Michael displays some of his high-energy, creative rhymes over an instrumental driven by classic strings and heavy percussion. The more relaxed flow of the young, skilled Rockie Fresh, a recent MMG signee, contrasts perfectly to that of the Cool Kid, while the production of J. Hill and iamLpeezy, also Chicago-based, ensures that the midwest sound shines through. Sir Michael’s Lap of Lux is set to drop on August 2nd and will kick off what should be a great month for music.

[Hip-Hop/Electro] Sir Michael Rocks – Now You Do (Prod. Flosstradamus)

Sir Michael Rocks, one half of Chicago’s Cool Kids and recent Jet Life signee, is set to release his debut solo album, Lap of Lux, on August 2nd. The first single and opening track, “Now You Do,” features Flosstradamus’s legendary remix of Lana del Rey’s “Video Games”, Lana’s ThemeI am one of the first to advocate for the fusion of electronic and hip-hop and this is a perfect example of how the two can work together. The hard-hitting, trap-style of Flosstradamus, also based in Chicago, fits perfectly with the grittiness of rap. While many hip-hop loyalists are extremely cautious when it comes to incorporating EDM, artists like Sir Michael show us that the two can coexist without harming artistic integrity. An awesome collaboration that should be played at high volumes, preferably in a residential area.
