After touring with rap legend CL Smooth on his UNPLUGGED tour earlier this year, Lorain, Cleveland native Vice Souletric is back to “Defend the Land” just in time for the Cavs’ playoff push (and their game 1 victory in the Eastern Conference finals last night) with his new Cleveland anthem “O-H Uh-Oh.”
Says Vice: “With the Indians back in action and the Browns coming off what many to believe to be a stellar draft, this anthem adds fuel to an already buzzing and promising future for all of Cleveland sports.”
The gritty single — produced by Nottz — also brings the announcement of Vice’s next album, T.R.A.P. (The Reality of All People) due out later this year. While details on the new project are scarce, fans will find solace in his past collaborations with Pete Rock, fellow Ohioan Hi-Tek, 9th Wonder, Skyzoo, and Talib Kweli, along with his previous album Vice For President 2. So it’s safe to say we’re in good hands for the official follow-up.
Stream “O-H Uh-Oh (The Cleveland Anthem)” below and stay tuned for additional East Coast dates for CL Smooth’s UNPLUGGED tour.
