Rookadamus aka ROOK (Realistic Outlook On Knowledge), a Korean-American rapper from Chi-Town was also part of the AA movement in the early/mid 2000s. Like fellow AA rapper, Shogunna, he experienced a different walk of life. He hooked up with Snacky Chan’s Dynasty Muzik label and released a mixtape in 2006, Hell is Empty and All the Devilz are Here, which received nothing but good reviews from the public (you can download the mixtape for free below). Unfortunately, he had a run in with the law again in 2008 and was sentenced to prison in Colorado. He was released earlier this year and, from the looks of it, will be back in the studio with more thoughts to share.
