Detroit rappers Icewear Vezzo and Big Sean have finally teamed up on a new single "Balance," showcasing some of the best rap talent that the Motor City has to offer.

The single, which was released by Vezzo on Motown Records, features strong lyrical flexing from Big Sean, who is currently signed to Jay-Z's label Roc Nation. Kicking off with a bass-busting trap beat, Sean's smooth flow complements Icewear Vezzo's antagonistic bars:
"Shoulda put your jewelry in a casket/I just bought another Cuban, I'm a savage/Bitch, I'm a boss I ain't average/A lotta n——s falling off, we're still balanced"
Icewear Vezzo has been putting in work as the first rap artist ever signed to the historic Motown brand. Signed to the label in fall of 2018, "Balance" marks the Detroit rapper's first single of 2019.

Big Sean, however, has been laying low, with little activity on social media since December of 2018. Despite the rap sabbatical, Sean dropped a subtle line tipping his hat to the Motor City.

"It feel good to be home/ It feel good to be back on/ All my business is black-owned"
