Q: Last year you did Colo on the rocks 1.0. Tell us what this years show is all about?
A: This year is about bringing different lanes of hiphop to one show to create a vibe better than last year. For example there are alot of underrated artist, like Ashy Meat he gives me a skimask the slum god vibe. On the other hand we got Jack da Jrippa he got that Chicago drill music vibe.
Q: How did you come up with the name”Colo on the Rocks”?
A: The name came from me chilling with some friends and us trying to come up with names for my 19th birthday bash, which was titled Cirocnei. Me and my graphic designer went through names like Crown Colo, Ciroc Colo, and then we finally came up with Colo on the Rocks which we used the name for the first show in February 2019.
