"DaveEast, Rockim Williamson Mixtape Collab"

Rockim Williamson, a thought-provoking artist with songs like “Confidence,” “Waves” and “America (What’s Wrong?),” has always been musically gifted. “From a young age, I was singing, rapping and performing.”

Throughout the course of his musical career, Williamson has sought out spaces that would help him unite listeners seeking positive, relaxing, and light soul music in these turbulent times.

Williamson who you may remember attended an event at the Church of the Messiah and met with Pastor Barry afterward, which led to an opportunity to perform for a business launch as well as at the Silence the Violence last year, is looking to build momentum for his upcoming collaboration for Dave East’s “East Side Raps.”

Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
Rockim is set to bring his positive and poetic style of rap to join an Indie mixtape hosted by DaBlock365 and Dave East himself. The mixtape is scheduled to be released the week of July 17th on the following platforms Top Mixtapes, Soundcloud, and select Blogs.

Rockim’s platform has grown since he performed at events such as the Silence the Violence March, Grosse Pointe’s 50 year MLK Commemoration, or even Confidence Choir performance during Lisa Leslie’s Keeper of the Dream.

Most known for solely sharing the stage with Black Bear and Superduperkyle during Oakland University’s Spring break Concert, he uses his talent to spread Positivity, Confidence, and the love of God.

"Rockim Williamson - The one Bringing Real Hip-Hop Back"

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Rockim Williamson began writing music in kindergarten. Let me elaborate. While the average 5-year-olds were still learning how to spell their name, Rockim was writing songs. Young Rockim was unaware that he was writing the beginning of his story — literally.
“I attended Marvin L. Winans Academy of Performing Arts Elementary School, so I had an early introduction to music and creativity in general,” he tells us. “I started performing in the 3rd grade and started releasing music in the 6th grade.”
Speaking of performances, he is known to steal the show, in fact, win the show.
I have personally attended a 2017 talent competition at Oakland University, and I saw his performance to his song, “Confidence”. For one, I was blown away at how alive the crowd became. (Can’t believe he won 2nd place. He deserved 1st place!) He, along with his band and choir, eventually won first place at a 2019 OU talent competition. I was there for that as well.
“I’ve opened up for SuperDuperKyle & BlackBear, I’ve won the Coast2Coast competition with over 30 different artists, and earned the opportunity to perform in Miami. I’ve won numerous talent shows, as well as Battle of the Bands at Oakland University.”
I noticed he had a great ability to create hip hop/rap music — minus the common vulgar language, mature content, and glorification of violence. This skill in and of itself is impressive. During this Medium interview with Rockim, I was curious to hear his experience on this topic. I was sure hip hop/rap artists experience some hurdles creating clean music.

Rockim began pursuing music professionally in the 10th/11th grade.
“It’s tough because that’s what’s popular, and that’s what everyone attention is on. However, I believe what I bring to the table is great enough to do damage. I know I’m incredible, I know I’m different, and I am always a student, I’m never complacent.”
I believe, however, that creating clean music in this type of industry will stand out. It will also be a benefit to an artist’s career. “It’s a bit of both,” Rockim admits.

So, let’s get to the exciting news.
Along with other major rappers on the hunt for some of the next best artists, Dave East decided to launch a mixtape showcasing emerging artists.
Our very own Rockim was invited to be featured on East Side Raps presented by Dave East. (Yay!)
This is only the beginning. There are far greater plans ahead for the artist. He, along with a small percentage, are the only ones keeping hip hop alive. In the past, lyrics mattered. Nowadays, mumbling words from is enough to be a hit. (Sad, I know.)
But artists like Rockim Williamson won’t allow true music to be forgotten.
“My long term goal is to bring people together through my music and be able to eventually take care of my mom, better than she has taken care of me…Hip Hop is missing The Lord. Not saying everything has to be pure and holy and perfect, because I promise I’m the unpurified person ever, but if people would just read The Word and learn to comprehend it, you’ll understand what I mean.” - Press On


Still working on that hot first release.
