    Ice Water Mike will make you freeze and take a closer listen.

    On his debut freestyle, "Locked up & spittin fire", you can hear pain, power, and poetry encapsulated in the six rawest minutes hip hop's counted down in a decade. Ice Water Mike recorded this over the phone from a correctional facility toward the end of a nine-year stint. His vibrant spirit reverberates past any walls and deep inside the heart of this fierce introduction. He delivers unbridled energy with a rapid-fire stomp a la Tech N9ne and the guttural grit of Rick Ross. He's unlike anyone else in the game, and he's unveiling quite the story in this fascinating six minutes. His rhyming is impenetrable, and the fact that he never stops shows he's got the heart of a lion.

    Take a couple of listens because now that his story's formally beginning, no one will be able to forget it or turn away.

    The truth is, Ice Water Mike is about to kick off a flood of classic hip hop.
