They Can’t FWM – [Icewear Vezzo]

I’m so used to underground artists putting out an influx of music while mainstream talents get away with sometimes only dropping something new once in a blue moon. While it makes sense for the up-and-comers to want to get as much music out as possible to increase their chances of success in this industry, I feel like the bigger names are given too much of a break and need to continue to expand on their work ethic as they celebrate their success. Now, I’m not here to lecture or complain, I just love hearing new music, but then again, who doesn’t? Obviously, there are exemptions to my previous statement, and the biggest exception I could ever think of is Icewear Vezzo, a Detroit spitter who makes nothing but hits, and lots of them. While he is certainly no longer an underground emcee, I don’t know if you could classify him as a mainstream rapper either, but with the music he makes, it seems like this is his choice, not anyone else’s. Vezzo just doesn’t appear to ever sleep or even leave the studio, for that matter, because not a week goes by when there isn’t a brand-new song, video, or …

Trim – [Lil Zay Osama] ft. [PGF Nuk]

Lil Zay Osama has been a legend in Chicago for more years than I could probably count, but it seems like, over the last few years, he has really blown up more than ever before. It seems like anyone who matters in the rap world here is on his side, and anyone who doesn’t ride with the Windy City spitter is behind the curve. Although he has come across my radar for a while, it wasn’t until recently (in the grand scheme of things) that I really started to pay attention, and I am sure glad I did. Zay has worked with the biggest names in drill music including Lil Durk, G Herbo, and more, but he has also collaborated with superstars not necessarily classified in this subgenre like Icewear Vezzo, Benny the Butcher, Sada Baby, Sheff G, Jackboy, Lil Tjay, and even Sean Kingston, amongst way too many others to count. His connections don’t stop there, though, because especially recently, he has been tapping in with some of Chi-Town’s most prominent young icons including the DCG Brothers, Fastmoney Ant, and even PGF Nuk, an emcee who is considered to be one of the most exciting up-and-comers in many years. …

Chase Em Down – [Lil Zay Osama] ft. [G Herbo]

In Chicago, the formula always seems to remain the same: either you’re a local talent, a world-renowned hitmaker, or a local legend. Regardless of how anyone else seems to label specific artists, I feel like anyone who is tapped in with the Windy City rap scene knows which category each emcee fits into, and the best thing about these talent pools is the fact that it doesn’t matter which area you fit into because you’re going to get love from the fans in this city regardless. Lil Zay Osama is someone that I think could be categorized in either of the latter two groupings because while I personally believe he has the skills and the charisma to back up this label, it just feels like he is overlooked way too much compared to everything he brings to the table. Regardless of what the rest of the world might think, I know he is one of the biggest icons this city has ever experienced, and bear in mind how he has the connections and support from some of the most recognizable names in the history of rap. At the end of last week, Zay dropped his album Trench Baby 3, a …

Its All On U – [Icewear Vezzo] ft. [Kodak Black]

It seems like the music scene in Detroit had barely gotten its feet off the ground before Icewear Vezzo completely took off, but after hearing a handful of his songs, it’s abundantly clear why he has become so ridiculously successful. His skill set is diverse, his work ethic is unmatched, and he has this personality that you can’t ignore even if rap music isn’t really your thing in general. Whether he’s dropping entire projects, singles, or even being featured on other artists’ songs, he is literally everywhere, and due to the fact that he always works with different emcees with various styles, it shows just how adaptable he is, and he proves that every chance he gets. I know I already mentioned it once, but his work ethic is seriously insane, and even though he isn’t even a month removed from dropping his latest album Rich Off Pints 3, he is back with a brand-new Antt Beatz-produced single entitled “Its All On U” featuring none other than Kodak Black, as well as a Kardiak Films-directed visual that brings out his entire city once again. In this one, prominent horns shape the melody as splintering percussion and pounding drums paint the …

New Music Friday With $NOT, BabyK Osama, Rich Amiri, and Yella Beezy!

Friday is always the best day of the week with new releases from some of our favorite artists! First up we have 19-year-old BabyK Osama with his latest single “Ticket” on all streaming platforms. The Simple Stupid / Geffen Records signee has been making some noise ever since he was released from prison last spring. In a short span of time, the Jacksonville rapper has released five projects and hasn’t shown any signs of letting up anytime soon. In the visuals for his latest single, BabyK Osama was surrounded by exotic cars as he raps over a feverish instrumental. His signature Jacksonville flow mixed with his blazing wordplay created a head-spinning single. I look forward to watching his career advance this year! Gold-selling recording artist Yella Beezy delivered his latest mixtape titled Bad Azz Yella Boy. Yella rose to fame in 2017 after releasing his mixtape Lite Work, Volume which included his hit record “That’s On Me” which debuted at 37 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts and earned 200M+ video views. His career has been a journey, but his latest mixtape is a testimony of all the work Yella has been putting in and finally enjoying the seeds of his …

Rich Off Pints 3 – [Icewear Vezzo]

As Detroit rap music grows in popularity by the day, so do the artists making this irreplicable and undeniably great style of music. While artists like Lil Yachty have placed a spotlight on the scene, this has only caused emcees to go harder and want to prove themselves even more, and that has led to some of the greatest verses and collaborations in modern music, at least in my opinion. One of the most notable figures in the entire Midwest is now Icewear Vezzo, a man full of limitless talents that continue to impress me with every new release. His 2021 series Rich Off Pints featured two editions that accumulated over 150 million streams total and considering the fact that he was still just finding his footing, there is literally no way to predict exactly how big he’s going to be. This is mind-boggling because he’s already a legend, so the fact that he has an entire career ahead of him just scrambles my brain in the best possible way. As he geared up to release the third and final part of this series, his buzz was through the roof, but now that it is out, I am excited to …

The 6 – [Icewear Vezzo]

When I first got heavily into learning about the Detroit rap scene, I was fully engulfed in the numerous unique individuals who were coming up. This was probably about two years ago, and at the time, I didn’t think my love for this music would ever be able to grow, but that has been proven wrong with pretty much every song that has ever dropped in this time period. Not too many artists seem to blow up at the same time, but in Michigan, it seemed like when one person would explode into the spotlight, the rest of their homies weren’t far behind in terms of taking the next steps in their careers. Icewear Vezzo was an emcee who seemed to get much bigger before some of his Detroit counterparts had the chance, but ever since he made his way to the top, he hasn’t stopped to look back. Not only does he consistently release new music, but he seems to top his old releases with ease, even when it seemed inconceivable at the time that some of these older tracks first dropped. His Rich Off Pints collection of projects has definitely become one of his largest claims to fame, …

The Commission – [Icewear Vezzo] ft. [Peezy] & [Payroll Giovanni]

When I first heard about the Michigan rap scene, I remember writing about artists that I had no clue who they were, but I just loved their vibe and couldn’t help but spread the word however and whenever I could. I didn’t even know half of their names, so if there were a few emcees on a single song, I had to do research and look them up to understand who was rapping at what point in the song. Clearly, if you have been following along with my articles for more than a year, you know I have come a long way because I probably know too much about them at this point, but I just can’t get enough of the music coming out of this scene, and out of everyone Icewear Vezzo is not only one of the best, but he’s someone that I think should be credited with putting the city of Detroit back on the map with a new face after the rest of the country just labeled the Motor City with Eminem and no one else. His upcoming album Rich Off Pints 3 is set to drop in just about a week on June 29th, and …

SNSG Makes His Return With New Tape ‘Cheat Codes 3’

Following the release of Cheat Codes 2 in 2021, SNSG returns to the rap scene with his new mixtape Cheat Codes 3. In his previous project, the California- based rapper had the opportunity to work with Sada Baby, Icewear Vezzo, Snap Dogg, FMB DZ, and Sacramento rapper C.M.L. However, SNSG’s new album is unlike anything else we heard before. With features from Acey, Akacia, Soledad, Payroll Giovanni, Cash Kidd, and Castro Escobar, the rising artist continues to sweep his listeners off their feet. When you listen to Cheat Codes 3, you can hear the growth SNSG displays compared to when he created Cheat Code in 2020. You can hear how his flow has developed over time and his wordplay has become more advanced. “The number one difference between Cheat Codes 3 and the previous 2 Cheat Codes Tapes is the amount of growth I’ve gained in my artistry,” He explained. “I would also add having Payroll Giovanni featured on Cheat Codes 3 is an honor. I grew up listening to his music long before I wanted to be a rapper.” I look forward to what SONG will bring forth this summer. Check out his new project below.
