So Cold Records has emerged as the most buzzing label/collective of hip hop artists among the youth in the Twin Cities. Front man Allan Kingdom recently announced the North American leg of his Lines tour, he’ll be joined by fellow So Cold artists, Finding Novyon and Drelli, among others. Over the last couple of months the trio has released more than a handful of tracks in various forms of collaboration with each other, “Relax” being one of their most recent.
