Alex Blocker, a Colorado transplant from Chicago, released his new music video for the summery hiphop track “Makes Me Wonder II” from his previous album, Heartbreak Radio. “Makes Me Wonder II” is the perfect summer hip hop track that paints the story of “A desert love story dedicated to the beauty of black families”. An artfully produced video showcases the lyrical creativity behind the track. “We in your car, you’re in your feelings. She’s chasing love, I’m chasing millions”. Just like everyone from time to time, Blocker contemplates the what if’s and what could have been’s of a relationship gone by.

Alex Blocker breaks boundaries with a genre fusing style of contemporary music that combines elements of R&B, hip-hop, and jazz. Influenced by his Chicago roots, Blocker has expressed musical ingenuity as an instrumentalist and vocalist on six previous releases.  Blocker began his music career producing and recording at YouMedia, an urban creative space in Chicago with previous alumni such as Chance The Rapper, Noname, and Akenya Seymour. Currently collaborating with Colorado artists Nobide and Angelique, he has also shared stages with performers such as Gramatik, Boombox, Masta Ace,  Def-i, Maggie Brown (Daughter of Oscar Brown Jr.), and recorded with John Walt of Chicago’s Pivot Gang.  Blocker’s latest release, Heartbreak Radio, is innovative, fresh, and original and has the tendency to leave audiences grooving and coming back for more.
