Mississauga, Canada rapper Audric Rose presents "No Fuxks Given", the new single from Concrete Rose, his forthcoming album set to feature DJ Agile, Hagler (who co-produced Drake's "Furthest Thing"), and Wondagurl (who produced Jay-Z's "Crown"). "No Fuxks Given" is produced by Kevin Gates/Little Simz collaborator Prezident Jeff. Formerly known as Shocka, Audric released the music video to his "Pound Cake" freestyle in 2014, and the XXV EP in 2015. In 2012 Audric was accepted into Canadian music incubator The Remix Project, where he met producer Francis "Got Heat" Nguyen, who contributes production to Concrete Rose.

It was a matter of me finding myself as an artist and really taking the time to build on my musical craft. I wanted to make a record that was for me. In return I've also created something for the streets, for the people to appreciate. My style is versatile."
