While there are dozens of Colorado hip-hop artists making joints for the purists and the street hip-hop heads, there are a few that just want to get you on the dance floor. That's where Rockie comes in, a 20-year old MC who dropped his DJ K-Tone-mixed mixtape, You Think That Was Cool? earlier this year, but is now moving forward with creating a buzz for his new album, Rockiez Road. His new single, "Loaded," is making its way around local clubs and is apparently on its way to some national recognition. Rockie is down with the Soulja Fam Entertainment crew, so expect appearances from cats like Myrical Child and A.P. on the upcoming project. For now, however, check out the new single and a download link for the mixtape after the jump.
