Emilio Rojas is a veteran on the independent Hip-Hop scene. Amid rumors in the past of him signing to Rick Ross’ MMG imprint, Rojas has made it clear time and time again that where he winds up – whether it be on a major label or continuing to strive on the independent scene – is not important. As long as he’s “comfortable,” he’ll be happy.
After recently releasing the very well-received mixtape, Breaking Point, with DJ Green Lantern, Rojas is on a mission: to have his music heard by as many new listeners as possible. Traveling to South By Southwest (SXSW) to perform for one of the most diverse gatherings of music aficionados is just another of the ways he has taken his career into his own hands.
The Rochester native continues to tour in support of the project and wants to release as many visuals for tracks off of Breaking Point as possible. It was after one of his explosive performances at SXSW that we were able to speak to the man behind tracks like “Sympathy For the Devil,” “Runway,” “P*ssy and Cologne”, and “Champion” about the response to Breaking Point, his new untitled EP with Green Lantern, and what exactly SXSW means to him.
