about

The new EP from Smoke Screen. Completely produced and written by Smoke Screen, this may be the Cleveland duo's most consistent effort yet. Keeping the something-for-everyone vibe, the focus is heavy on analog synths and heavy drum breaks. Featuring the lead single "Ice Cold Water" and guest appearances by Urbindex, Rio The Mechanic and Phenom.

*Nominated in the 2012 Ohio Hip Hop Awards for Album Of The Year

PRESS:

"Smoke Screen finally dropps its Ice Cold Water EP, and it’s a really solid effort. Fast flows, weird hooks, and some pretty decent beats, too."
-Anthony Fantano (The Needle Drop)
theneedledrop.com/2012/05/smoke-screen-ice-cold-water-ep/

"In fact, the album flows, quite literally, like a cool stream. From the backstreet wild style of the introduction to the extraterrestrial essence of the the ending and even on the call-and-response group vocal for the hooks, Smoke Screen knows how to curate a 20-minute that vibes perfectly and feels oh so good."
-Femdog (Dead End Hip Hop)

Everybody And They Momma Wanna Get Some/
Everybody Want The Honey Til They Get Stung/
But Don't Nobody Ever Wanna Roll Their Sleeves Up/

My Whole Team On Swoll Better Ease Up/ (Ease Up)

Cool Like A Breeze Through The Trees Bruh/
Just Lit A Blueberry Swisher Sweet Up/
It'll Burn Slow So I Keep My Feet Up/
Coolin'/ Jammin' A BROKEN KEYS Cut/ What/

Cash Hella Bags Of Grass/ Repeat Packin'/
Hash With A Splash Of Keef/ So Keep Passin'/
Keep That Old Fashioned/ Uncontrollable Wack Shit/
Outta My Area I'm Not Here To Give Up My Last Hit/
Everybody Been Askin'/ Where The Hell We Been At When/
All I Know Is My Faction BEEN The Definite Action/
A Little Bit Of Lemon/ Now Let It Get Up Inside Of You/
And Let It Be Like Lennon/ Imaginin' No Possesions/
Everyone's A Critic Or Know Somebody Who Spit It/
But If They Did It/ They Probably Wouldn't Even Admit It/
How You Wanna Eat/ But You Shed No Blood/

Late Night Tales/ Full Of Brake Light Trails/
Gotta Fresh Eighth So We Bake Tight L's/
Late City Life Where It Ain't Type Stale/
Where You Can't Go To Sleep Til The Daylight Fell/
Awake By The Smell In A Vacant Hotel/
Get Blazed And Escape To A Place Quite Swell/
Livin' In The Deep Where The Great Whites Dwell/
Where It Isn't Nothin' Sweet But A Grape White Shell/
Every Mornin' With A Wristband On My Night Stand/
Under 21 I Had An X On My Right Hand/
Go To Sleep Late/ Wake Up Late/ Stay Up Wait/
Hey What Day Is It By The Way?/
Tryna Keep Track Of The Weeks Ain't Happnin'/
Breeze Through The Map And We Meet Contacts When/
We Reach New Feats We At Least Keep It Crackin'/
UK Flats To The Streets In Manhattan/

It Happened So Fast It Was All A Blur/
Seemed Like A Dream When It All Occurred/
It Was All A Blur/
It Was All A Blur/


[MOOKE]
The Line Gets Blurred A Little More Every Day/
English Riviera Chillin' By The Bay/
It's Hard To Distinguish The Sun From The Rays/
Or Decipher The Call From The Water And Waves/
It Feels So Good And I Can't Complain/
Lights In My Eyes When I'm On The Stage/
Obscure Places And Faces Stay/
Vision Distortion From All The Haze/
Time Pass By Real Quick When You Work/
No Sleep Make It Seem Like It Was A Blur/
Put The Beats In The Pot And Begin To Stir/
Then See What You Got If It's Hot Then Serve/
Don't Drink No More My Speech Gets Slurred/
Meant That Shit I Keep My Word/
But I Keep Cheifin' On The Herb/
My Eyes Is Low I Feel Superb/


[CHORUS x4]
It Happened So Fast It Was All A Blur/
Seemed Like A Dream When It All Occurred/
It Was All A Blur/
It Was All A Blur/
