600breezy – Himalaya

Chicago drill staple 600breezy released the official video for “Himalaya” today, found on his recently released project, Retaliation (8.19). Shot while on a press run in New York City, the Hazz-directed visual finds 600breezy feeling larger than life, enjoying his lavish lifestyle as a newly freed man – a striking juxtaposition from the solitary confinement cells he once called home. “Six Chains On This Shit Feels Different Huh,” 600breezy raps in the track’s opening line, finally able to enjoy the fruits of his labor and continue his trajectory to stardom. Retaliation is available everywhere now, watch the video for “Himalaya” above.

The video for “Himalaya” comes behind “Shake That” (219K) in September and “Ticket” feat. Money Man, (401K) released alongside the project. For his EMPIRE return, 600Bbreezy delivered a 13-song scorcher encapsulating the maniacal grittiness of his debut mixtape, but with more polish. Heavily influenced by the original Chicago drill music scene, where he first gained his notoriety, the ferocity of every single on this project sets the tone for the heavy and haunting album.

Hailing from the Southside of Chicago, 600breezy didn’t always live a life of fortune. A tumultuous childhood growing up in crack houses, being swept up in drug raids, and bouncing around from school to school shaped his experiences, and consequently, his music. His breakthrough came in 2015 with his very first release, “Don’t Get Smoked” – a track paying homage to the late friend and artist that inspired Breezy to step into the booth himself, L’A Capone. With the music video garnering over nine million views and attention from major artists, 600breezy quickly followed up with his debut mixtape, Sixo Breezo, later that year, with a game-changing co-sign from Drake. Despite living life as a balancing act – one foot in the streets, the other in the industry – he hustled to deliver fans new projects: 2016’s Breezo George Gervin (Iceman Edition) and 2017’s Breezo George Gervin (Leading Scorer Edition). Time after time he comes back with bangers. Breezy’s blunt lyrics, energetic beats and delivery, and his commitment to the grind, make him a standout staple of Chicago drill.
