Icewear Vezzo captivates listeners with his easygoing rasp, his hard-as-nails demeanor, and his effortless slick talk. Further establishing himself in a rarified echelon of street rappers in Detroit and beyond, Vezzo shares Rich Off Pints 2, a new mixtape.
The tape reverberates with the sounds of the Detroit scene that Vezzo helped develop, with ominous piano loops, bouncing 808s, and rattling hi-hats setting the scene for Vezzo’s tales of his illicit past. The sequel to Rich Off Pints, ROP 2 continues the exploration of Vezzo’s evolution from hustler to entrepreneur, elucidating the artist’s competitive mentality one track at a time.
On the highlight track “Chamber Brothers,” Vezzo compares himself to gangsters of Detroit’s past, drawing parallels between his role in the rap game with their domination of the streets in the ’80s, and on “Hustle Hard,” he reveals his motivations to feed his family by any means necessary.
The mixtape also paints a picture of Vezzo’s flex-heavy present in songs like the recent single “Tear The Club Up” ft. Future (over 3 million YouTube views) and the Three 6 Mafia-sampling “Sippin” ft. Babyface Ray. Featuring additional appearances from Moneybagg Yo, Rio Da Yung OG, RMR, and more.
“Rich Off Pints 2” is available everywhere via Iced Up Records.
