THE RHYTHM OF STYLE
How important is style in your line of work?
Very important. For me it’s a lil different from the average kid, just because my dad, he’s really a big part of Boston hip-hop, on all element aspects. So my understanding of style is the essence. The way I play is more based off of the foundation, you know. I’m more known for playing for b-boys, and obviously what they say the golden era of hip-hop. I do play some new stuff too but what I love is that essence and that sound from the golden era, the boom bap.
What about the new guys?
There are a couple of cats right now. I like J. Cole a lot, and from Boston, I [really like] Slaine.
RUN THIS TOWN
Although he’s known for rocking the party in his hometown, Rock is also an avid history buff. And living in one of the country’s most historically rich cities has its perks. “If you want the Boston experience, I think you should definitely check out the downtown area,” he advises. [Especially] the Freedom trail.” But don’t get it twisted. The b-boy turned DJ still likes to enjoy Beantown’s nightlife. You can catch him spinning, dancing or just chilling in some of his favorite Boston clubs:
The Good Life – Regarded as one of the best clubs in the area, the spot hosts a great hip-hop night called Fresh Produce on the last Saturday of the month.
Middle East – The 550-capacity venue is an institution in Boston that is a haven for rap performers touring through the area.
Middlesex – Cool, laid-back lounge that has a great rotating cast of DJs.
1. To maintain this style after growing a sexy designer stubble, set the cruZer beard&head to the closest setting. Trim your hair every day to keep your stubble from sprouting into a full beard.

2. To complete the look, clip your hair to a short crop. This is not only a low-maintenance hairstyle, but also goes perfectly with a nice designer stubble. Of course you can also use the cruZer beard&head’s styling functionality to shave some cool patterns or lines into your close crop.
3. As a perfect combination of a light hint of facial hair and a closely cropped hairstyle, this look works perfectly for all kinds of different styles, depending on how you wear it. From rugged to refined or sexy – this hot combo is a hassle-free and cool look that will express your individuality in an intriguing way.
