Chicago is a cold city — even when the temperature’s rising. It’s cold in a few ways, and it most definitely got a bit more chilly this afternoon with the release of Traxster’s “Cold Part 2,” featuring the legend Buk (from PsychoDrama) and Tyme.

Anytime Trax and Buk connect on a track it’s a success, and today they freeze and bust pipes with their second edition of “Cold.” It’s freezing in here, so listen down there. You’re gonna need a jacket.

Our prayers go out to Rocaine and his family.
