Rocky Romero of NJPW Just Dropped An Album. Say What?!?


Are you familiar with New Japan Pro Wrestling, then you’re PROBABLY also familiar with Rocky Romero. If not, you should know that he’s a longtime tag team specialist and sometimes dons the mask of Black Tiger, a legacy gimmick once held by the legendary Eddie Guerrero. He also has something in common with WWE stars John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Tyler Breeze: he performs his own theme song, “RPG Vice Theme,” where he’s the vocalist AND producer. However, the story doesn’t stop there…

Romero is branching out into the hip-hop world even further, releasing Six Trees Vice, a ten-track album available for purchase on his Bandcamp page for a minimum of…wait for it…SIX DOLLARS! Why THAT title? We’ll let Romero explain himself:

Roppongi Vice brings a strange brand of music with this collection of songs dubbed “Six Trees Vice.” Confused? You should be… Roppongi in Japanese literally translates to “Six Trees.” Get it now?

Hey! I get it NOW! Both Romero and his tag team partner Trent Baretta — currently in pursuit of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team titles — are featured on the album, which features some synth-heavy hip-hop, and some songs like “K.O.S.S.” (a shout-out to Shinsuke Nakamura), “Dustin’s Song” (a salute to fellow wrestler Chuck Taylor), and a remix of his theme song “RPG Vice Theme” featuring MVP and Kenny King throwing in some bars.
