Let It Rock Review: FloRocker “Rich In The Heart”

814519022206

Reason for rhyme: Californian rapper serves up urban revelations.

This artist is said to have been on the scene for many years now, but “Rich In The Heart” seems to present the first tangible testimony to Flo’s flow of beats; the vocalists he shares a CD space with are also debutants, record-wise, so there’s a freshness to most of the pieces here. Toning down usual boasts, the singer’s spinning a Snow White mantra in “Mirror Mirror” to inform it with sly innocence, and the salvo of “Freaky In A Benz” is as arresting as a pimped ride may get, yet if one can have a beef with the album, it would be the cuts’ flawed sequencing because the first three tracks roll on basically the same groove. Still, the old-school disco infusing the grime is more than welcome, while the rhythm-and-blues tropes – not only contemporary R&B – on “Late Night” and “Get It On” provide the needed variety to the hip-hop drift.

When the rhythms go boom like on “Down Fa Me” with Flo articulating words in a fine manner to stress social discourse of the number, the “wow” factor is brought home, although the hardest-hitting, heartfelt song here is “Rest In Peace” which is an enchanting, acoustic guitar-spiced eulogy to the artist’s mother. Yet if the wordless vocals behind “Get To Steppin” turn it into a Morriconesque kind of deal, the “hey-hey”-abetted lines on “You Got That Work” return it all to the streets. That’s a very emotional work, and as a first offering it deserves to be heard.

MidwestRecord.com Review: FloRocker “Rich in the Heart”

814519022206

FLOROCKER/Rich in the Heart: Vet beat maker is now rapping for his supper and it seems like the first lesson he’s learned from all his years in the game is to make the lyrics intelligible. With annunciation being prominent, it gives you the chance to decide if you like the content or not and whether to get upset by it or not—but that’s just his old skool skills speaking. Sure, it’s a young urban sound, but it’s some of the smokingest street level stuff since the Geto Boys were in their prime. Releasing this on his own label to reflect his own bottom up take no prisoners ethic, now that “Hamilton” has opened non rap fans ears to rap, take this ride down some back alleys for the real deal. Well done.

Richmond, California Rapper and Producer FloRocker Announces the Worldwide Release of His New Full Length Album “Rich In The Heart”

Richmond, California Rapper and Producer FloRocker Announces the Worldwide Release of His New Full Length Album Rich In The Heart 

For Immediate Release – Richmond, California – Over the past quarter-century there has been a huge upsurge in Hip Hop and Rap music emanating from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area. The trend continues to this day with some great new artists and labels popping up not only in San Francisco and Oakland, but in the adjacent suburbs of Vallejo and Richmond, California.  This includes FloRocker, a dynamic artist and producer who has been in the game for many years, and is proud to announce his new 12-track debut album, Rich In The Heart, due for worldwide digital and physical release on October 28, 2016. FloRocker is releasing this album as a celebration of life, spanning club songs to street records, and with a variety of genres represented including Rap and Hip Hop.

FloRocker was born and raised in Richmond, California, and the city will always be in his heart, regardless of what people hear or think about the place that raised him. As a child FloRocker was fascinated with how music was created rather than who was actually singing the songs that he heard on the radio, and his unique sound comes from trying to make a different kind of music than everyone else. Flo has always explored new sounds with every track he has written and produced.

Originally deep into creating tracks that were intended for other artists to record on, Flo found that his music started speaking to him, and the more tracks he produced, the more new and different production and lyrical ideas came into his head. Several months later the album Rich In The Heart was created. The album was co-produced by Bentley and featured vocal guests on the album include K-Rob the Singer, Ms. DeNaro and Brothers 4 Life.

A strong inspiration for Flo’s album came from his mother passing away after a battle with stomach cancer. Flo’s mother raised him and his brother to follow their dreams, and she has been in his thoughts as he did so throughout the entire production of Rich In The Heart. No matter what he is doing or where he is, his mother’s spirit is there to guide him.

FloRocker’s musical skills are matched only by his work ethic. To release his debut album, he has created his own independent record label, FloStyle Entertainment, and will be performing and continuing to produce music and additional releases throughout the coming months and years.    Co-Executive produced by FloRocker’s partner K-Rob, this team has more great artists and music on the way in 2017 and beyond.

Music videos for two of the songs from Rich In The Heart will be released leading up to the album’s release. This dynamic Bay Area artist is on the rise, and his groundbreaking music is guaranteed to turn some heads.

FloRocker is here now to wake up those who were sleeping.
