M.I.S.S.’s very own fem-cee one-woman wonder Rocky Rivera returned to New York to play her first gig in the city late this summer. The city that never sleeps definitely wasn’t sleeping on the award-winning journalist turned MC that night, because even despite an epic late evening thunderstorm, the house was backed with fans both male and female that rhymed along to each and every word Rocky was spitting.
In New York to celebrate the release of her mixtape Hearts & Minds (produced with DJ Roza), Rocky’s appearance at Hudson Terrace was a triumphant return for the MC who hadn’t been to New York since her MTV days. With a set consisting of crowd favorite MRSHMLO and a duet with Mala Reignz, Rocky was definitely… in the eye of the TIGER! RAWR! (ok, just one bad joke allowed, right? right?).
