For the first time - and it's been a long time coming - LogicandEminem finally link for a collaborative single.
And it exceeds all expectations.
The two trade rapid-fire verses that hit as hard as the production. “Mass murder like this can’t be good for my health. When I rap like this, do I sound like sh*t? Well it really don’t matter cos I’m killing this sh*t,” Logic boasts. Eminem chimes in with his own boastful lyrics as well: “From the East Coast to the West, I’m the ethos and I’m the GOAT. Who the best? I don’t got to say a f*ckin’ thing though. Cos MC’s know.”
Comedian, Chris D’Elia, closes out the record with his impersonation of Eminem – which went viral back in 2018.
Seems like there’s no end in sight for Soulja Boy when it comes to industry beef. Today, Drako continues his beef with Tyga, releasing a “Thotiana” diss video. Taking aim, once again, we find Drako accusing Tyga of being a liar, and gloats about his relationship with Blac Chyna, Tyga’s BM.
“Word around town, I f*cked his baby mama. yeah, kaboom, boom. With your son in the other room.”
He continues on the two-minute music onslaught with references of the February incident where Tyga was dragged out of Floyd Mayweather’s birthday party by security: “He got dragged out the club by the security, I know he big mad.”
We assume this release is a response to Tyga’s “Thotiana” Freestyle where he raps, “N**ga call me a goat, don’t call it a comeback. Seven million records, nine months, where Soulja at?” Check out Soulja Boy’s diss below. And then let us know who’s jewelry collection is colder!
Colorful ice is a bold statement. As if platinum, or gold wasn't fancy enough, a hint of colored gems in your jewelry definitely screams "FIRE!" Who wore it better, though?
In Hip Hop, you gotta be able to rep your set properly. And by "properly," we mean encased in gold, platinum, and diamonds. Above, we see Soulja Boywith what appears to be a Gold Rolex Oyester with a customized VVS diamond encrusted bevel. Below, Tya is seen repping his Last Kings Records logo - the indie record label he founded in 2015.
Time is money. And so is a nice watch. We all know your wrist game has to be on point, too, in Hip Hop. Above, we see Soulja Boywith what appears to be a Gold Rolex Oyester with a customized VVS diamond encrusted bevel - because, you know, a watch isn't just for telling time. Below, what's better than one iced out watch? Two gold watches, of course. And Tyga looks extra chic with the shades to match his all black 'fit.
As Lil Wayne once recited "Time heals all, and heels hurt to walk in..." I think that would suggest it's time to check out our collection of watches before your feet start hurting?
For over 14 years, King Ice has been producing wearable art, inspired by culture and has designed an insurmountable amount of highly demanded, unique street wear jewelry. One of the most prominent and anticipated collaborations has been with Death Row Records.

Death Row Records has been one of the most significant labels in music history and West Coast hip-hop. Since the initial start of Death Row in 1991 by Marion “Suge” Hugh Knight Jr. and Michael “Harry O” Harris, the effect has been monumental. Some of the label’s artists included the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac Shakur.
Though many came from turbulent backgrounds, nothing was going to stop them from succeeding. By 1994, the label had generated $300 million in sales. The label produced numerous hip-hop albums that are considered classics to this day.
Dre’s “The Chronic” (1992) was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Snoop’s “Doggystyle” (1992) was certified quadruple-platinum and Pac’s “All Eyez On Me” (1996) went on to be certified diamond by the RIAA.
The artists weren’t the only members to succeed from their trials and tribulations. Harris, a reputable blood gang member from the Bounty Hunters set in the 70s and 80s, was a drug dealer in the streets of South-Central LA. Being street smart and book smart helped Harris become a successful entrepreneur and stray away from the gang life. He had an abundant amount of businesses like hair salons, limousine companies, and numerous real estate investments.
Death Row Records’ has made a staple in hip-hop. Rapper The Game from Compton dedicated an entire song to this prominent chain called “Death Row Chain” from his “Streets of Compton” (2016) album, noting the significance of what this chain really means.
Fast forward to 2019, almost two decades after the birth of Death Row Records, the Death Row x King Ice collaboration has made it possible for admirers to rock the label’s infamous logo chain like we’re back in the 90's.
On Feb. 28, King Ice will be launching two new colorways and styles of the Death Row chains that will be added to the collection on www.KingIce.com.
The first style is the Death Row Records logo necklace that will be available in a white gold or 14K gold finish. Each pendant will be iced out with clear VVS Diamond Simulates and will be paired with a 24”, 8mm Cuban Chain.
The second style will be the same Death Row Record label logo necklace in a white gold and 14K gold finish but will have a more solid look to it without any stones. These will also be accompanied with a 24”, 8mm stainless steel Cuban Chain.
Each piece will run for $120. For customers with a bigger bag, the $8,000 Solid 14K Gold and Diamond Death Row Logo Necklace and the 14K Solid Gold Death Row Logo Necklace for $5,500 are available for purchase, as seen on Snoop Dogg and The Game most recently.
King Ice has built its reputation on quality. And we recognize quality not only when we see it, but when we hear it as well. Whether its mainstream, or indie, good music is good music and we’re here to share the hottest records we come across on the World Wide Web - on a weekly basis.
To kick things off, we take you to the Midwest where VELA$ gives us a dose of a much needed “Nite Cap.” By way of Brazil, the St. Louis upstart captivates listeners with a hypnotizing production, crafted by Audio Chef, that haunts us with its taunting woodwind loops, and gritty drums. VELA$ shares that he’s in need of a nite cap cos he’s “been staying up till 3 now. Bad b*tch with me, we gon run the scene now.”
Next stop is the DMV, as Maryland’s own, AUNZ, takes on The Weeknd’s “Thursday” with his own remix titled, “ON THURS.” With his new album currently streaming on all platforms, AUNZ pairs the audio with fresh visuals directed by Jayson King and edited by Ryan Green.
As we head out to the Left Coast, we take a detour in Nevada, as Las Vegas transplant, Tru.Starr, finally unleashes his long-awaited project, “Smoke Break.” To close out 2018, Tru.Starr released a short film (with the same title) that featured a few singles off the album. Listening to Tru.Starr is both nostalgic and refreshing, as he effortlessly fuses old school soul with a new school attitude.
On the mainstream side of things, Future unloaded new bangers on “The WIZRD,” his seventh solo album. On the 20-track project, Future introduces us to his new persona with the help of Wheezy, Tay Keith, 808, and Southside, providing the musical backdrop. Standout record, “First Off,” features Travis Scott, who’s just one of three guest features on the project.
Back in New York, Brooklyn and Harlem make some noise as Desiigner and Dave East combine forces on “RIICH” produced by HitMakerDot and Chuck Taylor. Both rappers hold their own weight in their respective verses. From the city known for its hustle, Desiigner and East rap about their come-up, how to get the bag, and women.
“Woke” has become a trendy word in this day but with good intent. People are encouraging others to “stay woke” because, honestly, there’s a lot of BS going around in our society right now. Gearing up for a big year ahead, 2 Chainz unleashed a lyric video for his latest freestyle, “Stay Woke.” The freestyle comes as the ATL kingpin readies his new album, “Rap or Go to the League” - which has been delayed for some time now. Produced by Buddha Bless, “Stay Woke” takes a sample from INOJ’s “My Boo.”
“Look in the mirror, I say I did it myself. But God right there, he know I needed some help. I seen’em follow trends lil they end up broke. Read a book, change they diet, talking about stay woke.”
With an abundance of talented newcomers, and heavyweights that continue to push the culture forward, Hip Hop remains a force to be reckoned with. And here at King Ice, we continue to honor the culture with pieces such as our latest, commemorating the late Notorious B.I.G. The “Dream” Necklace features a “Dream” pendant that is covered in 14K gold plating with a VVS Diamond Simulate. Each Dream Drip necklace comes with a 6mm stainless steel rope chain - keeping the aesthetics Hip Hop inspired.
Showing love to both coasts, our official "Death Row Records" collaborative piece is also a Hip Hop must have.
As one of our most requested pieces, the Death Row necklace is solid 14K gold (48.0 grams) with genuine diamonds (1.03 ct), pieced with a solid 14K Cuban chain (35 grams). Each piece comes with a limited edition King Ice storage box and a Certificate of Authenticity.
