Directed by Diego Cruz. Produced by Ed Keels.

It’s only after we lose everything that we’re free to do anything. The Drank God Icewear Vezzo cooks up a hit with Kokewave Cook in his video “Life On The Line.”

The price is going up with Vez — to the point where he’s naming his next project Price Going Up (which drops in September), so be on the look out for that. In the meantime, in between time, check out Vezzo’s newest video below.

Finding Novyon + J.KELR f/ Chuck Inglish – Whole Fade

Two of the finest talents from the Land of 10,000 Lakes are joining like Voltron to drop a collabo project next week. Yep, just like that and out of nowhere, come Finding Novyon and J.KELR (one half of the Blended Babies) who ask you to Believe In MPLS.

Finding Novyon has been making some of my favorite new music as of late (including the undeniable “Let’s Get Lit”), and KELR is a longtime friend, who I have plenty of history with him from our early days in the Chicago scene. So it’s great to see these two coming together to rep their home state with full-length new project. Even better news? It drops next week, July 21st.

Today, however, we get the world premiere of something from their opus — “Whole Fade” — which features the other homie Chuck Inglish. Yeah, and that’s on the heels of Chuck announcing the official return of The Cool Kids. It’s a big week for all involved. Glad to see all factions functioning again.

But let’s get into this “Whole Fade,” featuring J. KELR on the beats and Novy on the raps. It’s grand. Listen below.
