Wonder Gang Talk Don Toliver Inspired Single “Ice Cola”
Mutli-talented Hip Hop duo Wonder Gang have released their “Ice Cola” single which is about exploring and finding balance between a personal idealistic life, and a high risk life of fame, partying, and performing.
Speaking with DJ Don Juan for Hip Hop XXIV, Wonder Gang explained how “Ice Cola” came about. “It was just a song we started working on last year,” Keith Wonder said. “So we have so many songs, so we just be picking which one we wanna put out depending what’s fitting for the time.”
“When we dropped Ice Cola, that was literally when the Texas storm happened. It was crazy, people saying ya’ll kinda brought the snow over here,” he added. In late February of 2021, 4.3 million Texans were left without power and hot water due to a winter snow storm.
With the goal of making a difference and inspiring listeners while having a good time, Wonder Gang’s new single coincides with that vision. “Ice Cola it is just a song about relationships and the woman today, some of the woman we’ve dealt with in our lives,” Keith Wonder explains. “Sometimes people have this bi-polar situation. We just trying to teach kids, if you dealing with someone with bi-polar you gotta be sober when you do stuff with them so you don’t get in trouble, cause they might switch up their minds.”
Wonder Gang have also linked with Travis Scott’s manager and could possibly become apart of the Cactus Jack label. A label which is home to 24-year-old Don Toliver. Interestingly enough, before linking up with Travis Scott’s manager, Wonder Gang had plans to pitch a record to Toliver. “Originally it [Ice Cola] was for Don Toliver,” TK Savage explained. “And, I listened to it and I’m like, ‘Man let me try to pitch it him’, but during the time we made it we didn’t have the connections we have now.”
The duo are also are in process of partnering up with The Coca Cola company to deign a can to inspire kids with their story, and they will donate those sales to HBCU campuses, and to COVID-19 relief organizations along with UNICEF.
