Listen to AG Club & ICECOLDBISHOP’s New “How To Cry” Single

AG Club (Avant-garde Club) is a Bay Area-based hip-hop outfit and creative collective that consists of Baby Boy & Jody Fontaine. ICECOLDBISHOP is a rapper from South Central, L.A. Not too long ago, they released their latest single, “How To Cry,” lifted from the “See You Next Year 2” compilation album.

AG Club & ICECOLDBISHOP – “How To Cry”

Crafted at Rick Rubin’s renowned Shangri-La studio, the soulful and throwback-leaning track features 808s, slow claps, and a captivating vocal performance by AG Club’s Baby Boy and Jody Fontaine. This collaboration showcases a calmer, more melodic side of “See You Next Year 2,” following the success of the up-tempo lead single “Big Bank” by Paris Texas, Kenny Mason, and Billy Lemos. The album contains contributions from King Isis, Monte Booker, Chase Plato, and more.

Rooted in soul-R&B, “How To Cry” features AG Club’s stacked vocals, creating a choir-like ambiance. ICECOLDBISHOP’s high-pitched delivery and poignant ad-libs in the second verse add an extra layer of depth. The song explores the challenge of expressing emotions to a loved one, even in the face of uncertainty, and the subsequent journey of navigating the inevitable mistakes along the way. This collaboration marks the second venture between AG Club and ICECOLDBISHOP, following their 2021 single “NOHO.”

“How To Cry” spontaneously materialized during an impromptu recording session one evening at Shangri-La. With all the studios occupied by other sessions, AG Club found themselves at the piano, accompanied by producer Dustin Brown. As the song started to take shape, curious artists joined in to witness the creative process. Without a moment to spare, the group quickly began capturing the essence on their iPhones. Amidst the excitement, they invited ICECOLDBISHOP to freestyle with them. Eventually, a studio became available, prompting AG Club, ICECOLDBISHOP, and the entire Shangri-La community to gather, sing, laugh, and encapsulate the limitless energy of that memorable night.

After overcoming a period of homelessness, he released singles like “Katana” and “Creep,” showcasing versatility and landing on the COLORS video platform with “IRATE.” Moving into 2020, he collaborated with the producer for “DICKIES SUIT” and, in 2021, delivered a notable performance at the Roxy Theatre. This partnership resulted in his major-label debut in December 2022 with the impactful single “THE GOV’T GAVE US GUNS,” produced by Kal Banx.
