Gucci Mane’s “So Icey” is a rap classic. It birthed Gucci Mane’s career and established him as a threat to the status quo in Atlanta, focused on dancing and snapping at the time. With such an important place in music history, it’s not surprising to hear that it’s seldom been touched by artists. But that’s changed with Ice, San Francisco rapper with a penchant for blunt punchlines. His rendition, aptly titled “So Icey” goes just as hard as the original, bringing it up to speed with the modern times.
The visual for the song is relatively simple, being Ice and his boys having fun on a bridge, but wasn’t Gucci’s video simple too? Because of this, it works. Both versions are alike, yet different. Props to Ice for doing Gucci Mane’s classic justice. We can’t wait to see what else he has in store.

@RealRobotJones and @LadiEarth have the time of their lives in “Big Ol Booty”
Robot’s tenacious new track “Big Ol Booty” will undoubtedly be the soundtrack to a lively time once the weather warms up. The Texas-based rapper knows how to have a good time, judging by past hits like “Camera” and “Sleigh,” and brings that same approach to this tune, reveling in his unique energy to breathe fresh air into the instrumental. Ladi Earth, whose music has just been featured on Netflix’s Russian Doll (her song “Water“), appears her and brings some sex appeal to the proceedings.

The best part of Akhil Sesh’s new record “I Don’t Need Nobody” is the swiftness in which it moves. The video, edited by Goetia Portal, is beautiful and clean, combining cinematics with artfully shot clips that create a unique experience. The song itself is a smooth reinforcement of Sesh’s dominating abilities that showcase his growing palette of sounds.
