Rocsi Poses for YRB Magazine Spread


People often say seven is the number of completion, and after seven years of hosting the #1 music countdown show, Rocsi Diaz is ready to take her career to the next level. The New Orleans native has her eye set on Hollywood and doesn’t plan on looking back. Rocsi can be found in the latest edition of YRB magazine rocking exclusive pieces from Japanese brand Issey Miyake’s new collection.

YRB Magazine recently caught up with Rocsi. During the interview, she discussed 106 and Park and how it changed her life while also revealing the misconceptions that people may have of her. She also gave sound advice to aspiring talent who are hoping to snag the spot as the next BET ’106 and Park’ host.

Rocsi On her passions:
My passion lies in bettering and empowering our youth. Through my charity, The RocStar Foundation, mentoring and speaking engagements and through how I live my everyday life, I try to be a role model – not only for young girls – but for the youth as a whole. I want them to know they can achieve anything they set forth in their mind. You always need that cheerleader in your life.

On Misconceptions people may have of her:
I’m not what people think I am. People see a persona on television and they tend to think that is how people really are, when in actuality, we are all just human beings. I’m a very spiritual, humble and down-to-earth person. There is so much more to me than what meets the eye.
