The Detroit Native and Quality Control Music Signee Samples a Classic Intro by Jeezy and DJ Drama in the Latest Hard-Hitting Single On the Road to Live From The 6

Critical Praise:

“His latest project basks in the idea that an album this regionally specific can still have nationwide appeal.” – Pitchfork

“The King of contemporary Detroit rap”HYPEBEAST

“As a Detroit hip-hop veteran, Icewear Vezzo has earned his position in the city’s hierarchy. With his first mixtape, The Clarity, dropping in 2013, and turning into a series, along with his presence in Detroit, the groundwork he’s put in over time is respected.” – XXL

“I don’t think a day will go by moving forward where he isn’t one of the main points in every conversation about rap all over the world.” – Lyrical Lemonade

The Video:

Icewear Vezzo is an old school hustler, injecting his money-getting expertise into each and every bar. Today, the Detroit native pays tribute to another famous hip-hop hustler, Jeezy, with his ice cold new video and single, “Snowman Freestyle.” Working a sample from the introductory track from Jeezy’s DJ Drama curated 2006 mixtape Can’t Band The Snowman (Vezzo connected with DJ Drama for last year’s Paint The City, which welcomed a guest spot from Jeezy), Veezo dips and ducks between the festive bell tolls and hypnotic arpeggios, rhyming about his ends with slickness and verve. In the video, Vezzo heads to Miami, donning white shades and a designer umbrella to protect himself from the Florida sun, as he stunts on his priceless jewelry.

“Snowman Freestyle” is the latest single on the road to Live From The 6, Vezzo’s upcoming mixtape. A down-and-dirty collection of sinister street stories, Live From The 6 keeps things local, with the only featured verses coming from signees to Vezzo’s Iced Up Records label. Featuring the recent single Love In The City,” plus earlier hits Back On Road” (1.5 million YouTube views) and Raw ASL (1.2 million views), Live From The 6 arrives this fall via Iced Up Records / Quality Control Music.

A pillar of the Detroit scene for nearly a decade, Vezzo launched an upward trajectory towards street rap stardom during his breakout 2022. Last year, Vezzo and his own Iced Up Records entered into a partnership with Quality Control Music, where he was a natural fit with the label’s illustrious roster. Vezzo’s first release with QC was Paint The City, a Gangsta Grillz mixtape hosted by DJ Drama. Home to the hit single “It’s All On U” ft. Kodak Black, as well as guest spots from FutureJeezy2 Chainz, and more, Paint The City was a natural evolution and elevatin from his acclaimed Rich Off Pints series of mixtapes. Most recently, Vezzo hopped on the remix to “2 Million Up,” the GOLD-certified single by Vezzo’s Eastside associate Peezy.

Vezzo’s deal with Quality Control continues an exciting period of success for the budding superstar. Consistently racking up more than 4 million streams on his catalog per week, Vezzo’s ambitions reach far beyond music, and even beyond the physical realm. The Iced Up Records CEO is a serial entrepreneur, starting his own businesses in fields as diverse as real estate, cannabis, snacks (We Eatin! brand recently dropped Vezzo’s own flavor of chips, called Vezzo Hotz), and jewelry maintenance.

With limitless ambition and the work ethic to achieve his every desire, it’s only a matter of time before Icewear Vezzo takes over the game. Stay tuned for Vezzo’s next mixtape, Live From The 6, coming very soon.
