Forever a classic.
Bronx bombas Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede absolutely struck gold with this one, and together as Camp Lo, they turned the rap game into a total Blaxploitation flick.

Icebird is (was?) the collaboration between producer RJD2 and singer Aaron Livingston (now known as Son Little), both solid musicians in their respective genres, with RJ gaining attention for his evocative, mostly-instrumental sounds and Livingston going from a guest spot on a track with The Roots to gaining traction for his solo efforts in his hometown of Philadelphia.
Hell of a title, right? But it’s a classic though.
I’ve been on an Isaac Hayes trip for the last few days.
