Rocko Ballin Pours His Heart Out On Highly-Anticipated EP LUCKY LAST BORN VOL. II

Published

on

Back when Hip-Hop was a battle between East or West, music was about who brought the heat both in and out of the booth; years later and the principle is still the same with an added element. Who can bring a new style of rap to the table? New York has continued to be the mecca of fashion, pillar of influence, and the inspiration behind some of music’s best. One of New York’s emerging artists, Rocko Ballin, has been making headway in the Drill&B scene and his latest EP, Lucky Last Born Vol II, is a testament to the type of pressure Ballin is applying in Hip-Hop.

The first installation of his EP series Lucky Last Born was a culmination of raw, gritty emotion interlaced with real life experiences propelling Ballin into creating a masterpiece that set the tone for records to come. Calling on fellow drill artist 26AR for the record “On My Shoulder” exhibits Rocko Ballin’s ability to create an organic sound that takes his artistry to new heights. “You’ve never been around now your close” is evidence that Rocko Ballin quite attentive and has a good head on his shoulders; he isn’t phased by those eager for a come up.

An introduction that created the path for Lucky Last Born Vol II to become the highly anticipated predecessor to Rocko Ballin’s debut. Most artists tend to stray away from revealing some of their most coveted secrets to maintain a persona. But from the jump, Rocko Ballin comes swinging with the first record of the EP “Bleed For Me” allowing himself to use music as a coping mechanism to deal with street trauma. At a certain point in life, we have all given ourselves to people who did not deserve it, which is something that Ballin knows all too well. “I got some n**s that I gave my all to but they let me down,” details being left in the gutter when all he needed was a helping hand.
