Having just seen Rocco with T.O.P. a couple nights ago, I’m happy you provided this bit if addition inspiration. Thanks

I saw him last night. Of course no bass solo, none needed. Excellent example of in the pocket and soloing within the song. I doubt if Rocco thinks of it that way but I sure do. I know his lines and last night he was ripping some ah sh#t I never heard him play before.
