These days, what comes to mind as soon as you hear Ice Prince is nostalgia. Big Daddy Ice hasn’t been the Ice Prince everyone loves in recent years.
He almost became a villain after leaving the M.I Abaga-led Choc City Label. However he has traveled all over the world, sampling several sounds in the process in a bid to rediscover his wining form.
You all know that the time frame between “Everybody Loves Ice Prince” and his last album, “Jos To The World” was a long one. And a lot of things have happened since then.
In 2018 he has given us “If I Tell You” featuring DJ Spinall, and “Handwork” all within a short time. Before we knew what we signed up for, the “Aboki” rapper went on to announce an Extended Play (EP). He dropped “Hit Me Up” which had two fast-rising acts, Patrickxxlee and Straff. The EP was to comeon June 20 but was delayed due to the chaotic situation the country.
But now we have a new project and it is titled “C.O.L.D” with eight tracks. The EP seemed like it was leaked, because Ice Prince still tweeted about the delay a few days ago. The tweet didn’t however ask us to expect it soon. The album came in circulation on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
The C.O.L.D EP has the likes of JethroFaded, Patrickxxlee, Remy Baggins (he produced “Hit Me Up”), Straffiti (remember him from M.I’s “Rendezvous”) and K-Switch as guests. And contrary to what impression the title might give you (which should be an acronym for something), C.O.L.D EP is a hot one!
Meanwhile, SA rapper, Nasty C recently dropped the visuals to his single, “Jungle”. “Jungle” is a single off his forthcoming debut album, “STRINGS & BLINGS” which is due out this weekend!
