After the release of his debut LP "Halal Chinese Food" at the top of the year, Brooklyn emcee Ockz returns with a free project for the fans, "The Stuyvesant Chronicles", released today, September 1, exclusively on AllHipHop.com.
The new concept mixtape finds Ockz flying in a dope ensemble of indie artists to lend their specialities over some familiar, jazzy samples. It was clear that he's no newcomer to the game when he leaked the recent singles and videos for "Nautilus" with Fred The Godson and "Cops & Taxis", with a cameo from the tape's talented co-executive producer, Raki.
People just catching on to Ockz will appreciate his latest leak for its timeliness with the #BlackLivesMatter movement - "Rise Up" is a strong dose of Hip-Hop featuring lyrical powerhouses Skyzoo and Quadir Lateef.
