Ice T Partners With OG XO Brandy….

OG XO Brandy is produced in France and handcrafted in small batches, created with a blend from “exceptional vineyards” to ensure a distinctive flavor.

Representatives for Aiko Importers reached out to Ice-T’s manager Mickey Bentson a year ago, who happened to be looking for an alcohol brand Ice-T could really get behind.

“Ice-T sat down with me and I told him, ‘you have to see the presentation.’ He loved the taste and the bottle. At the direction of Ice-T, I also told them we didn’t want money, we wanted a partnership,” Ice-T’s manager Mickey Bentson told AllHipHop.com.

“Ice decided it would be best to have partnership in the business so we can build other brands. The bottles are great and the liquor is fantastic,” added Bentson, who also owns Pay Up Records, a label that recently inked a major deal with Empire Distribution and signed artist Mr L.O.C. (Bay Area), Devon-P & TJ (UK) and Half Lip (PA).

“Coco will end up with her drink as well, and I will end up with mine. We think long term. We are building other brands within this company,” Mickey Bentson told AllHipHop.com.

OG XO Brandy, which was founded in 2004 near Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is currently available in select markets in the United States, including Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

By 2011, OG XO will be will be available in every market in the U.S., with a retail price of $22.99-$42.99.

In related Ice-T news, the superstar actor/rapper has been added to the lineup of performers during a concert celebrating the Zulu Nation’s 37th anniversary in Harlem, New York at the Center for Hip-Hop Culture Center at Magic Johnson’s Theater.

In addition to rappers like Ice, Sadat X, DJ Tony Touch and the Soul Sonic Force, Bentson is planning to introduce Half Lip, a new rock band on his Pay Up Records imprint.

And my ears [are] to the streets…I’m not even gonna say the name of the n*ggas I know, that’s gonna single n*ggas out or whatever, but n*ggas know whose supposed to be on that cover and n*ggas know who ain’t supposed to be on that f*cking cover.” (“True Stories Radio”) Continue reading ‘Nipsey Hussle To Jae Millz, “If You Been Rapping 10 Years & Ain’t Drop Yet, It’s Over!”’

It’s going to be the craziest album out of the four. It’s going to be the most hood, but the girls are going to get into it because we’re going to keep it live.” The West Coast has almost been on life support for quite some time in Hip-Hop. Taking it from New York just to give it back and then watch it flood to the South, the game hasn’t quite been the same for the West as it hasn’t had such a prominent voice as it did in the days of Death Row. Fans waiting to see how the West will win can look into Game as another candidate as he will be accompanying Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg with a return to music. Dropping his album, R.E.D., the same day as Snoop’s Malice N Wonderland, December 8 is starting to look like a promising Tuesday for Hip-Hop.
