    Ice Water Mike "That's How I'm Getting Down" Song Review — 5 out of 5 stars - By ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino...

    If you haven't heard Ice Water Mike, you'd better get down with him now.

    The Detroit spitter is on his way to the top of hip-hop without any layovers. Already, Vibe.com has him doing a weekly "One Take" series, where he drops 300 bars over the hottest beats out there, and every time he hits the mic it's fucking fiercer and fierier than the last. That brings us to his first official single "That's How I'm Getting Down", produced by The Closers, The Wise Guys and Joe Boom. It's a stone cold banger.

    Over an eerie, creeped-out beat, he stomps along with robust delivery dropping one clever line after another. Listening closer, the story becomes clear, and it's all the more harrowing and hypnotic. In some ways, this is the best way to get to know Ice Water Mike and how he's "getting down". It also opens up the gate. Now, he's free and he's going to take over. Rarely do MCs have this much technical talent and the ability to hold a hook together. He can do both, and that makes him even more dangerous and dynamic.

    Meet one of hip-hop's most important new voices and one of the best rappers to ever come out of the D. Say hello to Ice Water Mike.
