Rocko Says His Song With Nas “Just Kinda Happened”


Rocko’s latest project, Poet, turned a lot of heads when Nas popped up on the mixtape for the song, “Hustle.” The unlikely collaboration stemmed from Nas and Rocko hitting it off upon meeting and “kinda just happened” from there.

“That song with Nas, man, it just kinda happened,” said Rocko in an interview with MTV News. “I met him; we hit it off well. We just stayed in touch, and he like, ‘Man, send me a song.’ So I sent him the song, and he was like, ‘Man, this crazy.'”

After collaborating on “Hustle,” the relationship didn’t end and according to Rocko, the two may have more music in store. “He was like, ‘Send me another song. Send me some more stuff,” Rocko continued. “And I ain’t get the chance, really, to send him anything else, and I had that song…And I was just waiting for the right time to put it out. With Nas being such a great poet, and us in hip-hop, we look at him as a great poet, so I felt like it was only right to put it on this project.”
