Straight off a nine-year stint in a Michigan State penitentiary, Detroit rapper Ice Water Mike presents the music video for “That’s How I’m Getting Down”, his new single produced by The Closers, The Wise Guys and Joe Boom. Since age 12 IWM has been in and out of prison, where fellow inmates gave him the nickname “Ice Water” (the coldest).
Mike does a weekly Vibe.com series called OneTake, where he drops anywhere from 30 to 100+ bars on the hottest Instrumental at the moment (watch here). “I’ve only been out [of jail] a couple months and this song is who I am,” Mike says of “How I’m Getting Down”. “I mentioned 4 rappers who I fuck with and relate to and envisioned sitting down with them and choppin it up about our pasts. This is my new beginning; follow my journey. Oh, and Support Your Local Convict.”
“Fresh Off My State Bit” mixtape coming soon.
