After recently beating out an attempted murder charge, Rock a.k.a The Rockness Monstah of Heltah Skeltah is back with his latest Mix CD project Rockin Out West, available September 7th, 2010 for physical CD release only. The album is an ode to Rock’s time spent out on the West Coast in Los Angeles with guest features from Kurupt, Ras Kass, Nate Dogg, and more.
“Rockin Out West is my latest gem” says Rock. “Most diamonds are rocks that form under high-pressure high-temperature conditions but at the end you get something beautiful, something special, a gem. That’s all a metaphor for the case I faced over the past two and a half years. The case and the pressure I was under created the climate that gave me the fuel and the fire to do this project. It happened on accident, but then again I don’t really believe in accidents.”
With Rock’s powerful voice and hard hitting rhymes over classic West Coast hits, Rock is confident in the release, elaborating “To all of my fans and supporters, old and new, this gem is my gift to you! Rock on!”
Rock will be releasing several music videos from the forthcoming Mix CD, in the meantime fans can listen to the latest leak off Rockin Out West, “Rockridah” as Rock’s distinctive sound flows over 2Pac’s classic “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” here: “Rockridah” SoundCloud Link: http://bit.ly/bHqu0S
