Earlier this month YouTube Originals unveiled the official trailer for Ice Cold, an all-new, 4-episode docu-series that uses the prism of hip-hop jewelry to explore deeper issues around racial inequity and the American Dream. The series dives into hip-hop’s ability to reimagine and transcend established notions of wealth, status, superiority and the sheer resilience of hip-hop culture. Ice Cold features special appearances from rap trio (and executive producers) MIGOS, J Balvin, Lil Baby, Lil Yachty, A Boogie, A$AP Ferg, City Girls, French Montana, Slick Rick and Talib Kweli. In addition, top celebrity jewelers Ben Baller, Eliantte, Johnny Dang and Icebox were interviewed and featured within Ice Cold.
All 4 episodes of Ice Cold premiere for free Thursday, July 8 exclusively on MIGOS’ YouTube Channel. This announcement comes on the heels of the release of MIGOS’ new album Culture III, and the Deluxe Album includes an original track called “Road Runner” which is featured throughout Ice Cold. Ice Cold itself was directed by Karam Gill (G Funk, Supervillain) and was also executive produced by Kevin “Coach K.” Lee, and Pierre “P” Thomas. The docu-series was co-produced by Quality Films, Universal Music Group’s Mercury Studios and Polygram Entertainment, Mass Appeal and MGX Creative.
On June 18, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ice Cold director Karam Gill about the docu-series showing at Tribeca, his prior films, future plans as a filmmaker, New York and more via Zoom, as embedded below. More on Gill and Ice Cold can be found here, here and here.
