Don’t let the name fool you; on the chessboard that is the music industry, Rook considers himself a king. On the latest single off his forthcoming street album, Pixel and DMT‘s quietly intense piano-loop boardwork sets the mood as the Cambridge, Ma. representative chronicles his efforts to “...build [his] Kingdom.” Rook’s latest street release, the punnily-titled MixedApe mixtape, is set to hit the ‘net for free download in June. In the meantime, fans can click the link above to cop Kingdom for free via Audiomack.
