Maybe I’m just a sucker from classic rock samples, but I always felt “Cold As Ice” was one of the stronger songs off Cyhi’s Royal Flush 2 mixtape. Aside from the super-cool piano lick from Foreigner’s late ’70s hit simply sounding good, the somewhat-slowed tempo and loose concept allowed G.O.O.D. Music’s ATL connect to exercise his flow and subsequently drop enough atypical one-liners along the way to keep listeners trigger-happy with the repeat button.
And, now, while I’m still trying to figure how Da Prynce came up with “Mo haters then 2-4, y’all softer than new growth/ don’t send your goons folk, ’cause they shoot slow, like Kukoc,” director Vitamin E has flipped the track into a viral visual. While not exactly VMA-worthy, the chopped-up clip will undoubtedly reignite Cyhi’s promo run for his Summer tape, despite the song’s theme.
Shouts to FOS.
