It is that time again as the 7th Annual Southern Entertainment Awards is set to commence once again. This time around, the event will take place at The Cannon Center for the Performing Arts on March 7, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Something so far away needs to be mentioned so early as voting for the event began September 1 and an honorable mention is West Coast rapper Roccett as he has been nominated for mixtape artist of the year.

The artist known as Roccett is most known for his work alongside Young Jeezy when he was a member of the CTE camp. As he felt he wasn’t pushed or marketed correctly by Jeezy, he decided to make moves and make a mark on his own. On this journey, he has blown up on the mixtape circuit which would build up to his latest, Another Day Another Dollar.

As the West continues to try and dig their feet and stand firm in the Hip-Hop game, having an artist by the likes of Roccett can only help bring the West back.

Although critically acclaimed for his work on the mixtape game, an interview with HipHopWired showed that the artist has aspirations far past delivering 16 bars and freestyles over other people’s beats.

“ I want to do an album because I feel like on mixtapes, I can’t really give you everything except for me spitting. There’s records that I want to do that I feel are good records, but they aren’t meant for a mixtape. If I do a song about my mom or my brother or sister, I want that to be on the album. I feel like it’s album work and I want to put that out, but not on a mixtape. It’s like people don’t even respect you on a mixtape unless you do some crazy rap bars. I’m ready to do an album so bad and I don’t care how we put it out as long as we put it out and I get to put my feelings on wax and hopefully sell some records.”
