Denver, Colorado artist ROOKE5 tells you his story over a smooth beat by Curtiss King. "My Story" is the type of track that I bob my head to as soon as I hear it. The smooth beat is complimented by nice lyrics and flow. ROOKE5, pronounced Rooks, is an independent hip hop artist born and raised in Colorado. Heavily influenced by a variety of genres, ROOKE5 draws inspiration from the likes of anyone from Sam Cooke and Curtis Mayfield to more recent artists such as Murs and Grieves. Not only does it bring variety to his music but also a creative balance between blues and modern hip hop.
