Artists have been known to draw song inspiration from the oddest of places and the most unexpected of people, but that isn’t the case for Bronx native The Kid Daytona and his latest cut. Fresh off the release of August’s, Booth-hosted Summer Games: The Kid with the Golden Pen, the Freestyle Series alum was inspired to pen his latest record in honor of former NBA All-Star and Hall of Famer George “The Ice Man” Gervin. Fittingly titled Ice Man, the record finds the emcee swapping bars with fellow emcee Smoke DZA as the coupling of artists partake in a little self-assured lyricism. Production from Matt MLB keeps Ice Man heavily head-nod-worthy as the beatsmith pairs vibrant bass with mellow strings. Although The Kid Daytona’s latest offering isn’t attached to any larger project, his last mixtape is still available for free stream and download on The DJBooth.
