Woo Hoo!! Hey all you naughty muffins I’m so happy to say that Cocky da Homo MC will be in bed with me AND we’ll be spinnin his tracks. DON’T MISS THIS!!
Cocky was initially sparked from a conversation between prominent A&R Jeff Blue and a New York group home resident Justin Schiz. During the meeting, Blue suggested that Schiz take advantage of his homosexuality and market himself as “the gay rapper.” Almost immediately, Cocky began work on his first mixtape, “Straight From The Gutters of Sheol,” which, to his amazement, attracted instant attention from many prominent hip hop webzines most notably AllHipHop.Com, who featured Cocky on their homepage for 4 days. “Cockaveli,” Cocky’s second mixtape release was released to critical acclaim within the LGBT hip hop scene, and within a month, garnered 25,000 downloads and streams, making it the first release from a Gay Rapper to earn a Silver trophy on DatPiff.com. His third mixtape, “Zero Percent ” became his most successful project, as two singles released onto Retwedia.com gained a total of 250,000 streams. Cocky has trended US-wide on Twitter multiple times, with a following surpassing 300,000. Cocky met with Blue and his co-producer Trugman in December of 2012, recording the first single “Gnarly” to be used on his debut full-length album, tentatively named “Social Studies: Amaricón History XxX.”
