Rockie Fresh (MMG/Warner Music) will unleash the World Premiere to the “You A Lie (remix)” music video featuring Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross on BET 106 and Park today, September 18 at 6PM EST. The visual will serve as Rockie’s first official music video since signing to Maybach Music Group in July. Soon after the signing, Ross recorded a verse to Rockie’s original “You A Lie” from his Driving 88 mixtape and recently the two artists took to the streets in Miami to shoot a sleek black-and-white video directed by Spiff & Dre of Maybach films.
The newly signed 21-year old Rockie Fresh is currently on a 35-city nationwide headline tour in support of his new signing and upcoming Electric Highway release. On the tour, Rockie is visiting many cities across the country for the first time with supporting act and previous Rockie collaborator, DC based artist Phil Ade. Rockie has kept busy touring this summer, spending part of August on tour with MMG label mate Meek Mill for a handful of dates on the Dreamchasers 2 tour.
Along with Electric Highway tour dates, Rockie is finishing up the Electric Highway mixtape scheduled to release in October. The mixtape will serve as the follow-up to Driving 88 (released March 2012) and will mark the second installment in his Back To The Future themed series. Driving 88 was met with much critical praise with Complex Magazine, saying “Driving 88 is sure to establish Rockie as a force to be reckoned with” and XXL Magazine that said “From its first song to its last, the project [Driving 88] has a smooth energy” and VIBE Magazine declaring “[Rockie] Fresh’s career is accelerating at high speeds and he has no intention of slowing down.”
More on the Electric Highway project coming soon.
