It’s a Cold World out there in the streets—even when you’re living in sunny San Diego. On his latest single and first DJBooth feature, West Coast buzzmaker I-Rocc offers a broad-stroke outline of the trials and tribulations he faced growing up in the hood. Over The Batkave‘s moody, guitar-laced sample work, the headliner trades bittersweet verses with L.A. mainstay Nipsey Hussle and Sacramento newcomer Smigg Dirtee. Singer Nilaja rounds out the lineup, tying the record together with her plaintive hook and backing vocals. Cold World is slated to appear on I-Rocc’s Trill-I-Am LP, scheduled to drop via Empire Distribution before the month is out. In the meantime, Nipsey Hussle fans with $100 to burn can hear more on his latest street album, Crenshaw.
