Death By Icon is a Chicago hip-hop group made up of Vic, Ant, and producer Dook, and “Wake Up” is the animated first single from their upcoming album Hassah. With clean, hefty production and a chorus that’ll stick with you after one listen, it’s a strong introduction to what’s in store.
From the group: “The concept stems from this idea that through knowing Kevin Bacon, you know everybody (i.e. ‘six degrees of seperation;’ being introduced to one person could mean you’re ‘six persons’ closer to where you need to be). Names and exaggerations get thrown around in our field of work often. The chorus calls bluff on those who do this.”
