A Ride Down Rosecrans is an album five years in the making. Rosecrans Vic launched his platform RosecransAve.com October 1st, 2014 to provide a platform to all the rising talent in Los Angeles being overlooked by major publications during this time. The goal was to document and help cultivate a culture growing in Los Angeles at the time. Far removed from the days of dickie suits and chuck taylors, this new LA movement had an eye for the latest designer clothes and an ear for a new sound all their own that had grown from the ashes of jerking movement.
For the past five years Rosecrans Vic has been a key figure in the Los Angeles underground hip hop scene as he was the first to either write about, interview or book artists such as Shoreline Mafia, 03 Greedo, The Stinc Team, Blueface, Ambjaay, 1TakeJay, AzChike, Rucci, Kalan.frfr, among others. Now, for the past few months, he and business partner Khalil Shashati have utilized all those relationships and spent countless hours in the studio crafting the soundtrack to the past five years as well as paving the road for the next five with this timeless body of work. The result is a Ride Down Rosecrans, an album where you will hear every part of the Los Angeles sound; the gritty street tales, the G-Funk infused tracks, introspective records, songs about love, loss and everything in between.
The album includes features from Shoreline Mafia, 03 Greedo, Boogie, Problem, AD, Rucci, Kalan.frfr, Aston Matthews, Big $wift, RobTwo and more. The production is handled by platinum producers Beatboy, RonRon, Meez, LouieJI, as well as Matt Bricks, Hollywood, Saltreze, LowTheGreat, DJIcee, ProdbyXL and more.
