Chicago. The city of ‘Broad Shoulders,’ hella haters, and up-and-coming rap sensation Rockie Fresh. The 21-year-old rapper originally out of Homewood-Flossmoor, Illinois isn’t doing too bad for himself these days. After the release of his debut mixtape, Rockie’s Modern Life, back in 2009 and promptly followed by a successful sophomore release, The Otherside, Rockie has since been named one of BET’s newest Music Matters artists, traveled on a national tour with Fall Out Boy’s lead man Patrick Stump, and is even in contentions to be named of one XXL’s Freshmen 10 of 2012. And with a new mixtape entitled Driving 88 released today, he’s confidant that he can put the city of Chicago on his back and breath new life into Hip-Hop.

By now you know there’s two Paypa’s in Chicago, and today we have a freestyle from Project Mayhem’s Paypa. He goes in over Frenchie’s current hit, giving it his own Chi-Town flavor. He calls shots, you call cops.
