Cold Hart Drops Track “Dying” Feat. Lil Peep




Today, Epitaph’s resident alternative rapper – Cold Hart – drops a track titled “Dying” that posthumously features his friend and longtime collaborator Lil Peep. The track appears on Cold Hart’s mixtape OC Season 3 which is now also available to stream in full, a 27-song agglomeration that spans his career, including collaborations with artist collective GOTHBOICLIQUE. Musing on the project, Cold Hart says,

I wrote these love songs to pass the time but more importantly almost as a memoir of the moment,” the Long Beach native explains. “Not literally what was happening but the emotions of the era. I miss all my friends from this time when everything was pure and raw and we made whatever we wanted anywhere. Literally anywhere. Gbc love gang originals <3 rip gus, bakari, sketchy, kawaii, inju, Nate Fly high.”



Working with acclaimed underground producers such as Charlie ShufflerGREAF, and Fish Narc, the result is a brazen hybrid of emo and hip hop that brings modern production sensibility to guitar riffs and samples. Cold Hart’s signature vocal reverb captures the disaffection and discontentment of the mundanities of life, through lyrical themes highlighting mental health, drug use and heartache.

As a native of Southern California, the title The OC Season 3 is an homage to the famed Y2K teen television show and others of the time, with tracks aptly named “Ryan and Marissa,” “90210,” and “One Tree Hill.” The songs exclusively lived on SoundCloud and YouTube until today, marking another chapter in Cold Hart’s ever-expanding repertoire for alternative and rap fans everywhere.

Commenting on the DIY ethos that runs throughout the project, Cold Hart states, “I made all these songs from west side Long Beach in a shed in my parents backyard, to a house in Boyle heights w nedarb and horsehead, a loft in downtown LA, a pink apartment in Echo Park, my North Hollywood apartment with my friend pretty heart break, and then to Brooklyn, New York in my apartment w yawns and fish.”

Cold Hart also discusses the early days of GBC and the internal dichotomy that helped propel the idea to reality, stating, “I was hopeless then, but not afraid. I was depressed but I was lit, just like everyone else was. I grew up in the hood but I loved alternative music, but I was too turnt for the alt kids. We dressed like rockers but we posted up at the rap shows downtown. I didn’t have anyone to be in a band with so we sampled songs to express how we felt. We didn’t need anything back then.”
