The critically acclaimed Toronto rapper Lil Berete has dropped his highly anticipated Icebreaker 2 mixtape available now across all digital streaming platforms via The Orchard.
Listen to the 8-track tape that includes guest appearances from Detroit rapper Sada Baby (“Big Man”), UK rapper and singer Nafe Smallz (“No Distractions”), British DJ/producer Unimerce, and emerging Louisville rapper 2KBABY (“Murda”). Icebreaker 2 includes previously released singles “War Ready” and “Murda” (feat. 2KBABY) and is a continuation of Berete’s 2018 breakout Icebreaker.
On the release of his highly anticipated mixtape, Icebreaker 2, Lil Berete shares, “This tape is where I am now and how I’m feeling but mainly Icebreaker 1 was an introduction to my city, now Icebreaker 2 is introducing me to the audience South of the border. I want to continue the Icebreaker series for my fans to continue the journey with me. I’m just getting started.”
By combining his own gritty Toronto-fused slang with the influence of his mother’s music and art from her homeland of Guinea, Lil Berete has quickly created his own unique lane in Toronto’s burgeoning underground rap scene. It’s with his measured duality of confidence and vulnerability, distinctive voice, raw talent, and dynamic flow that have made tastemakers such as COMPLEX, XXL, THE FADER, and HYPEBEAST tout Berete as being Toronto’s most important new MC on the scene.
