Rooky "Live Forever" feat. DMC
Jersey City’s Rooky burst onto the crowded east coast music scene and quickly blew away fans and critics alike. Over his short career, Rooky has shared the stage with chart topping artists such as Justin Timberlake, Macklemore, Austin Mahone, Flo Rida and LMFAO, and performed for private parties at larger-than-life venues like Yankee Stadium and The Park Avenue Armory. His new single, featuring the legendary DMC (Run DMC), is titled “Live Forever.” With his track record and the product he is presenting, Rooky is here to stay.
In addition to his busy music career, Rooky enjoys much success as a model and actor and can be recognized as the face of Verizon’s 2014 Fios Campaign and a featured model in Maxim Magazine with Jwoww of the Jersey Shore. Recently, he starred in a national Dave and Buster’s commercial which aired on MTV, VH1, and Comedy Central. He exudes confidence and a swagger that most of us would die for.
With “Live Forever,” his rhymes are smooth, his range and versatility is flawless as he jumps between shooting soaring melodies and a fiery cadence. There is a propulsive back beat that keeps the heart pumping from front to start. If you’re wondering where Rooky learned his skills, maybe we should take a look at the crew he rolls with. Enter DMC, one half of the legendary and transcendent hip hop legends Run DMC. He drops a verse that flies in and out with the ferocity of a wild beast. It’s a winning combination for the master and his young accomplice.
When you have a song of this caliber, it’s important to create a visual that is on par. There was really never any doubt that Rooky would deliver, and what we get is a thrilling clip full of color, action, and intrigue that features both the living and the undead. As Rooky desperately tries to find an escape for him and his lady, she is mesmerized by the power of DMC as the mastermind of the undead. Equal parts “Thriller” and The Walking Dead, “Live Forever” is a blast to watch, and the ending assures that we will all be left wanting more!
