Nicknames need to be an organic, appropriate thing. Rockin' Roko is forced, at best.

His dad was a rockstar in Croatia and he's into metal.

It's very apropos.

His dad plays drums in a pop-rock band (Daleka Obala- Far away shore), he also played i think drums, while he was young so yes u can justify the nick, if u was looking for that.

Song from Daleka Obala:

I hate these forced nicknames.

Of all the ones i hear, Jkilla sounds pretty natural. Same with Il Mago and CB4. The rest of them.... not so much.
I know that Roko's dad was a drummer (could be wrong with the instrument) in a band. that's cool and he likes metal. nice.... but "Rockin' Roko"???

It's about as good as "sky pilot" Graham, or "the conqistador" Jose Calderon, or any other lame swirsky given moniker.

Thanks goodness the Raps are winning again so we can go back to these matters that really need solving.

You can call him Roko-doddle-doooo for all I care as long as he plays like he did last night.
