Lil Rock05 is from Indianapolis IN. The music coming from Indy locals are inspiring and amazing but the only thing that lacks from Indy artists is the recognition. Even tho you Indianapolis is in the middle of the Midwest States only others around like Detriot, Chicago and Cleveland are the most recognized Cities. Plus, another thing is some of the Indy artists themselves get a little too arrogant about their music. All in all every Indy artists have their own style in music.
