While he has a deep discog and a long history with Detroit’s Team Eastside, Icewear Vezzo has been on a a special run just over the last couple years. Between some crazy features and the Robbin Season and Rich Off Pints series, he has established himself as a clear leader for the Michigan trap scene. While his newest project isn’t a drastic step up or departure, it’s just more quality bangers and another notch in his belt.

Count a million dollars in my sleep, I like to snuggle with it
Yеah, I got rid of all them leeches, had to cut em off
Soon as you show n—-s your hand, thеy try to cut em off
Them Forgiatos look retarded on that double R
Big stepper, flex around this bitch like I’m above the law

On Rich Off Pints 3, we get everything Icewear Vezzo is so dope and respected for, but with a subtle new polish and balance. Any Vezzo fan knows his rapid, choppy flow; He tends to fit a lot of syllables into a bar before taking a brief pause, making him a perfect match for these upbeat Detroit trap productions.

While these beats maintain the energy, slight techno influence, and rolling percussion signature to Vezzo, they also sound a bit more professional than on past albums. Everything sounds very crisp and it seems that with his growing popularity has come improved recording.

Building on the artistry of Rich Off Pints 2 (classic samples and even “Hustle Hard”), Vezzo manages to balance some of his best, typical street anthems, with some more creative ideas for him. “You Ever” brings some newfound melody, while the outro is an instant standout in his discography for the catchy Antt Beatz hook and grand sound to it all. Vezzo is sure to never sacrifice the classic gritty tracks we love him for, however; “The 6” and “Get Bacc pt. 2” are sure to stay in rotation and are full of vivid trap tales and make it clear that rapping is just the side hustle.

Additionally, features are all fitting and well placed. The usual suspects such as Lil Durk, G Herbo, Key Glock, and Lil Baby do their thing, while Baby Money adds a new dimension to Vezzo’s musical arsenal. E-40 also makes a dope appearance, furthering the deeply engrained Detroit / Bay Area connection. Rich Off Pints 3 is just another strong release from Icewear Vezzo, solidifying him as a mainstay of the Michigan trap scene.
