[In celebration of the NBA season beginning this week, SOHH is tipping things off with your favorite rappers boasting about their top teams. Today, Maybach Music Group's Rockie Fresh tells SOHH readers why he's riding with two elite squads.]
I'm definitely with the home team. That's number one. I'm definitely with the homie Derrick Rose.
He's going to be out for a while [with an injury]. That's kind of a huge loss. Especially for the city.
But right after Derrick and them, I'm an OKC [Oklahoma City Thunder] fan. I definitely want to see them go far as well.
If I could have it my way, I'd want to see the Thunder versus the Bulls in the NBA Finals. I would have it no other way. In that particular case, I'd be rooting for the Bulls in that situation because I really want to see D. Rose get that ring.
I've never really seen a player as hungry as him in a long time. He just has so much pose and confidence at such a young age.
Him being born and raised in the city and never leaving as well, I feel like he deserves a ring. I want to see him get it.
We went down the hood of Miami and it was a really nice, laid back thing. It was very smoothed out.From the same stomping grounds as greats like Kanye West and Common, and of the same generation as up and comers like Kid Cudi and Drake, this young artist knows he has a lot to prove to the music world and there is no doubt that he has the talent to do so. Speaking of his motivations as an artist, Rockie notes that he not only wants to share his music with the world, but also wants to "encourage people to [to be] comfortable with the way they are." Rapping about everyday life, Rockie gives us something to relate to, a rare gem in the music world of glitz, glamour, and spectacle.
