Sir Michael Rocks â€œNow You Doâ€
Coming on the heels of a prolific 2011, where he dropped three solo mixtapes (The Rocks Report, Premier Politics, Premier Politics 1.5), and a 45-city tour with Mac Miller in the first half of 2012, Rocks displays an advanced and mature sound throughout Lap of Lux. Producers on the collection include Cardo (Taylor Gang), Hit-Boy and J.Hill (Chief Keef) as well as his partner in The Cool Kids, Chuck Inglish while features include Casey Veggies, Mac Miller and more.
One of the standouts on the 15 track offering is â€œYou Know Whatâ€ produced by the in demand Hit-Boy (G.O.O.D. Music). The song features a playful beat with Rocks rhyming differently than fans might be used to. He explains, â€œI feel like I couldn’t have done this on one of my group projects, or even my earlier solo projects because itâ€™s a new sound that I’ve never really dealt with. Iâ€™ve got a real rapid-fire flow on there. This is something new that I’ve just stepped into.â€
Another banger on Lap Of Lux is â€œReservations.â€ Produced by Cardo (Taylor Gang), Rocks reminds fans of his rap skills and his easy delivery and story telling ability is showcased on this mid-tempo song. Not forgetting where he came from, Rocks teams up with his partner Chuck Inglish for â€œGood Sushi,â€ a Cool Kids sound with a 2012 spin on it. Sir Michael Rocks Lap Of Lux album drops August 2nd, you can check out the latest offering from the project titled â€œNow You Doâ€ which contains a very dope sample Lana Del Rey’s “Video Game” record
