“Mannerisms” (listen/download)

A little over a year has passed since the site last heard anything from Christ B (Cold Medina) of Higher Education Records. So it was a pleasant surprise to receive a new submission from the well-bred emcee. He is currently preparing for an upcoming project he has in the works titled, Cantaloupe & Rum. Joining him on the new offering is budding producer Original Vision. The pair have dubbed themselves Cold Vision and here is how their new venture is being described: Cold Vision is the convergence of emcee/deadbeat Cold Medina and young super producer Original Vision. Their full length project Cantaloupe & Rum is a sonically lush affair, chronicling the journey of two displaced Latinos attempting  to balance pleasure and pain, while navigating the heartlands of America. Diverse in both sound and subject matter, the project is sure to engage listeners with dynamic lyricism and spacey, boom-bap inspired production. – Press Release / The fellas officially released the first single/video off of their collaborative effort called “Mannerisms” in the middle of last month.
