Continuing the blog's recent Hip-Hop theme, I present to you St Louis MC Rockwell Knuckles. I liked the guy even before hearing his music, upon discovering he's named his most recent mixtape You're Fucking Out, I'm Fucking In (Eastbound & Down anyone?) The music itself only strengthened my respect for Rocky - Play Catch in particular a monsterous potential hit in the making. The way he switches between singing and rapping is particularly impressive, but really there are a number of exemplary elements in this track - his flow, the lyrical witticisms, the ethereal backing track, as well as some huge melodic hooks thrown in there for good measure. That mixtape title may not be much of a joke after all.
