Rock, Future, and the whole A1 Free Band Gang Movement are where Bird Man, Lil’ Wayne, and Cash Money used to be, right before international stardom. Rocko’s mixtape “Gift of Gab” is a straight up street banger. The tape is an epitome of future quality street music. The beats are extremely up tempo with pounding 808s that makes your head bob up and down, along with very tuneful hooks resonating futuristic musically crafted melodies.

It is not like your typical gangsta rap, even though the same street mentality is applied to the lyrics. The tape brings a new gutter, hardcore, rockstar persona to rap. “Take U away” or “Thumb Thru Da Check” songs have potential to surpass any mainstream hip hop song out (my opinion). “Squares out your Circle” will relate to how fame take sacrifices. However, Rocko has never been known not to delivery substance packed mixtapes. Rocko Dinero, Wild Life, and Swag Season were all major in the urban underground hip hop communities.

What a nice holiday gift for music lovers and congrats to Rocko and his aggressive movement. Hard work surely pays off. Let us know what you think of the music.
