AG Club and ICECOLDBISHOP Reunite On “How to Cry” from See You Next Year 2

808s, slow claps, and a captivating vocal performance

Hip-hop collective AG Club and rapper ICECOLDBISHOP join forces in the latest single from See You Next Year 2, titled “How To Cry” out today. 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. 

AG Club have been dubbed “the next hottest act out of the Bay Area” by FLAUNT and are proving this true on this new single. This collaboration showcases a calmer, more melodic side of See You Next Year 2, following the success of the uptempo lead single “Big Bank” by Paris Texas, Kenny Mason, and Billy Lemos. The album, set to include contributions from artists like King Isis, Monte Booker, Chase Plato, and more, is scheduled for release on March 29, 2024.

Rooted in soul-R&B, the track 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.
