Rockie Fresh – American rapper
Rockie Fresh's real name is Donald Pullen. He was born on 16 April 1991 in Chicago, Illinois. Not much information is available about his childhood. In interviews, the rapper revealed that in his youth, he was influenced by such musicians as Patrick Stump from the rock group Fall Out Boy and Joel & Benji Madden from Good Charlotte.
The rapper’s career began in 2009 when Rockie was just 18 years old. He self-released the first series of mixtapes without anyone’s assistance. In 2009, the aspiring rapper presented his first mixtape, Rockie's Modern Life. It didn’t make it into popular charts but became successful on the local level and helped Donald demonstrate his talent.
In 2010, Donald presented his second mixtape, The Otherside. It didn’t earn any substantial recognition but brought the rapper valuable experience and became an important step on his way to success.
In July 2011, Rockie released his next mixtape The Otherside Redux. The same year, he recorded a non-album single “Spotlight”, which earned some popularity but didn’t appear in any charts.
