Telling street stories with gravitas and panache, Icewear Vezzo hustles as a way of life. Flashing his water and resolving to never let the well run dry, the Detroit rhymer shares “Back On Road,” his new video single.
A bite-sized banger with ominous synths and low-note piano, “Back On Road” finds Vezzo packing a lifetime’s worth of wisdom into a single verse, as he compares himself to his heroes like Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne and touts his unparalleled work ethic: “F-ck around, be trappin’ ’til I’m 50, b-tch I love the life/I hate p-ssy n-ggas, don’t like rappers, I like mud and ice.”
In the video, Vezzo posts up in his native 6 Mile with some of his Iced Up Records associates, as he rocks Gallery Dept. and flaunts his fleet of foreign cars.
“Back On Road” is Icewear Vezzo’s first solo single of 2023, arriving in the wake of a breakout year for the respected rapper. 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” featuring Kodak Black, as well as guest spots from Future, Jeezy, 2 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.
