iCON the Mic King - Drifting With the Tide f. Awar

When he's not running half-marathons for Crohn's & Colitis or racing fellow emcees; iCON the Mic King is putting in work in the booth.

Drifting With The Tide is the first song in the series, and the song, which features Awar of the group Popular Strangers, is driven by a huge, bass-heavy beat that sets up an 80's-style guitar riff as the perfect melody. Speaking on the song, iCON says, "Drifting With The Tide deals with very real issues of betrayal and unattainable love." From the opening lyric, "In the war with oneself / You gotta earn some stripes," through the hook, "We fishin' in troubled waters, castin' lines to get a bite / And holdin' on expectin' somethin' from it in this lifespan," it is very clear iCON's struggle lies within, and it is a very real, very relatable struggle of lost love.
