Now, OTF shares Thug Life,” a video for a mixtape highlight, uniting three of the Midwest’s coldest rappers for an unapologetic banger. The new song thrives on the chemistry between Only The Family standout Chief Wuk, his fellow OTF rapper Doodie Lo, and Detroit slick talker Icewear Vezzo, its menacing, low-note piano bassline creating an atmosphere as gray and forbidding as the sky over the Great Lakes. Each emcee takes his turn demonstrating in vivid detail why opps should steer clear: “Thug life, middle fingers up/Screamin’ f*ck the opps/Dumped a drac’, let out one of the ’50s/Spin another block,” spits Chief Wuk.
