Rickie Jacobs' relentless assault of freebies continues as the Baltimore emcee showcases the YOG$ produced "Millionaire." While I ride out to all of the leaks that Rickie's dropped since the release of Songs For High School Kids, "Millionaire" has to be my pick.
Also, give a congratulations to Rickie on Twitter who recently linked up with Reebok Classics to provide the vocal backdrop to the first installment of their HeresYourAnswer campaign. Watch the commercial after the jump!

GUE's favorite Baltimore emcee Rickie Jacobs has been relentless lately, as he drops his second The Jake produced loosie of the week. Premiered by Sermon's Domain, the homie Sermon described the dual track perfectly:
"In Star Wars Episode II-III, Anakin Skywalker was at a constant battle with himself before ultimately turning to the dark side. If that could translate to rap, Rickie Jacobs’ “The Devil Wears Prada/God Wears Gucci” would be his episode II. This two sided record finds him struggling with his career (in a story fashion, not necessarily meant to take away as personal in his life) and his surrounding. The force is strong within this one."
Songs For High School Kids is out now!

It seems I've had to use my late pass a few times today, but no amount of shame would prevent me from sharing Rickie Jacobs latest project, Songs For High School Kids.
The Baltimore emcee who strives to "change the world with his vocal chords," linked up with some dope up and coming producers like King Tut, Smokey Suave, Artic and CXC to provide music for not only kids getting ready for prom, but us measly student loan paying folk as well.

If you didn't fully recognize what time it was on The Prequel, I'm issuing a "Stop Sleeping" public service announcement on this new one from the homie Rickie Jacobs. There's a little something for everybody on Live Epic, his followup to his 2011 acclaimed project Die Brilliant.
When it comes to life, are you actually living? Or are you allowing death to approach you slowly but surely? You do, in fact, only live once and within the hour of your birth and the hour of your death, it is up to you, and only you, to live it up before your time is up! With the aim to make history while his heart continues beating and his thoughts remain racing, Rickie Jacobs presents the next chapter of his story, which takes you on a ride through his soul and in turn, you can attempt to see life as he sees it through his own eyes! After all, before you can Die Brilliant, you must first Live Epic! What’s your life like?Download: Rickie Jacobs - Live Epic
