Believe it or not, being “Number One Chief Rocka” is less like being the Highlander than it is like winning a Miss America pageant; not only can can the title be held by more than one individual, but a new Rocka is selected each year. So, with that said, we’re extremely proud to present Chief Rocka 2010, underground emcee Neako. On this new mixtape freestyle, making its world premiere on our frontpage, the Jersey native introduces us to a more retro side of his artistic persona, flowing over K. Def‘s sampled sax/bass beat from Lords of the Underground’s classic joint. Lyrically, the freestyle series alum follows in his forebears’ footsteps, delivering bar after bar of larger-than-life braggadocio: “Held down my team, homeboy with one gun / and I don’t mean the hammer, I mean how I’m nice with the grammar, verbal AK, I will blam’ya.” So, is NeakO worthy of holding the Chief Rocka crown? I think I know the answer, but I’ll let you have the final say. In any case, fans will be able to hear more from this talented up-and-comer on his The Rubix Cube: Yellow Edition mixtape re-release, set to drop June 23.
