Rocko‘s career progressed was when he started his own label in 2002, called Rocky Road Records. Then he started producing and writing songs for artists like Dem Franchize Boyz and Young Dro. Noticing potential, producer L.A. Reid signed Rocko up with Def Jam Records, where he released his first album called Self Made in 2008.

The single Umma Do Me from the same album also received recognition and achieved #7 place on the US Rap chart. The album and it‘s single definitely increased Rocko‘s net worth by a large margin. His next album, Wildlife, was also planned to be released by Def Jam Records, but Rocko left the label before releasing the album in 2010. This one unfortunately did not make it to the charts. Besides his own albums, Rocko has also worked with artists like Future, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Sean Paul and Gucci Mane. Regardless, all the above increased Rocko‘s net worth.

The most controvertial, but popular of Rocko‘s songs is U.O.E.N.O.. By many it was interpreted as condoning date rape, namely the lines “Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it.” rapped by Rick Ross. This prompted a petition of 72,000 signatures that demanded Reebok drop Rick Ross as a spokesperson, which resulted in Reebok dropping the rapper a month after the song‘s release. Rocko had to remove the notorious lines from the song to get it featured on the radio. The net worth of both Rocko and Ross took a hit thanks to this event.

As for his personal life, Rocko is the father of three children, including two children with R&B performer Monica. However, they officially split up in 2010, apparently because Rocko cheated on Monica.
