Critical Praise for Sir Michael Rocks:

“Sir Michael Rocks is a pretty damn adventurous dude.” – Noisey

“Needless to say, dude’s a visionary.” – XXL

“Sir Michael Rocks is ready to take over.” – Complex

“Rocks is a solo artist looking to make good on a promise of stardom.” – The FADER

“He’s Mikey, he, he, he rocks. Yes he does.” – Pigeons and Planes

The Video:

In the video for “Come Outside,” Chicago rapper Sir Michael Rocks is sporting a cheeky smirk. It could be because he’s partying with all his friends. It may be because of his recent travel to places like the Dominican Republic or Tokyo for fashion week.  It might be because young emcee just released his Populair EP. Whatever the reason, Sir Michael Rocks is excited, elated, and has delivered a brand new sound, which the Examiner calls, “multi-directional, unpredictable, zany, chaotic, serious and dark.”

Produced by Aegyokiller, “Come Outside” debuted via Mass Appeal and includes an eerie sample from the Resident Evil Save Room theme.  The video features the former The Cool Kids rapper and his crew doing some Chicago stepping to a heart-racing kick and speedy percussion. Rocks is no stranger to using video game samples in his tracks. On the Street Fighter-sampling second single “Perfect,” The A.V. Club noted the song “is fairly chippy and pixilated, it makes perfect sense that the accompanying video is video game-centric.”

The Populair EP, which premiered via Complex, is Sir Michael Rocks’ followup to last year’s Banco. Whereas Banco featured guest artists Mac Miller, Twista, and Iamsu!, the more personal and retrospective Populair features no guests. Rocks self-produced edgy tracks “Quality Time Lapse” and “In My Mode, ” where he boasts “I just bought a 3-D printer and I printed out a kilo.” “You can almost hear a bit of Bone Thugs and Suga Free in his style,” said HYPETRAK of the Populair EP’s first single, “Pull Up.”

Sir Michael Rocks Background:

Sir Michael Rocks has always been a little ahead of his time, a little more original than his peers, a little bit more creative. As a teenager, he started making music under the name Mikey Rocks as one half of groundbreaking duo The Cool Kids. Formed over the Internet and powered by a strong grassroots fanbase online, the group helped redefine the image of rap for the Internet era with an effortlessly cool throwback style and an iconic, laid-back fashion sense. Rechristening himself as Sir Michael Rocks in 2011, the restlessly creative artist, now based in Miami after time spent in Chicago and LA, has been pushing the boundaries of rap originality even further in recent years with a string of popular, critically acclaimed mixtapes. He released debut solo album, Banco, in 2014 and released his Populair EP on September 11th, 2015.
