Rockie Fresh: “I want to wash out the old records in a way. It’s a difference between working to get a deal and actually getting a good deal. And then really like making the decision whether you just gonna ride that wave of having a good deal or if you are really gonna tell a story of how you got to it. I couldn’t tell my story of how I got to it because I didn’t get there. I was just rapping.
“That’s the thing too. I’m glad it happened this way because I think it would have gotten repetitive if all my music was like ,’Aw yeah, I’m trying to make it.’ People kind of get tired of that. I feel like everything is moving forward and it’s a start of the reflective part. It’s happened so soon that it’s going to be more short-term stuff versus on album it’s going to be all the way back to where it's the actual making of the album. On this, man, I actually did something that was the goal. Whatever people think about that, I achieved something in my life by getting a deal at 21 years old with Maybach.
I’ve been working with the same people. A few of the Maybach producers like Beat Billionaire and guys like that. They have been sending me records that are super dope. They are part of the family so I’m going to definitely be working with them
“I’m not gonna used that to stunt. I am going to use that as guidelines for other people to go reach whatever dream they want to reach to. I feel like if I talk about it in the right way, I could do that. I wouldn’t be able to discuss it in the correct way if I didn’t actually do the deal. Now, that I actually have it and I see what’s going on, I can really go back a little bit and tell the story.
“I’ve been working with the same people. A few of the Maybach producers like Beat Billionaire and guys like that. They have been sending me records that are super dope. They are part of the family so I’m going to definitely be working with them. But outside of that, I’ve really been in with my own people. The producers who helped me get to this point because they understand my sound and they are all so young. Same way I am getting better as an artist, is the same way they getting better as producers. And they have also had their own dreams and aspirations as far as having resources.
“Before we were unsigned. We just really couldn’t pull the strings to do anything. We are all being young and hungry and I think it makes for a real dope working environment. Something that is real progressive and I like to keep it that way. However, I would like to work with some big producers such as a Kanye, a Pharrell, or a Just Blaze. Timbaland. Right now, I am using what I got and I trust what I have around me and I am going to use that to make a classic.”
