It looks like Rio Da Yung OG isn’t letting his current legal issues stop his forward movement. Last week, the Flint, Michigan talent dropped off a new single titled “Cold Hearted,” a SAV-produced effort that features his brother Louie Ray and sees the two rapping about their high-end lifestyles:

“I was born in the middle of the street, bustin’ back to back, bitch, I got the pistol on repeat, catch me in a playground pouring liquor on a freak, nigga took a shot at me now his picture on a tee, cut a beat on, bitch, I be tripping, but not feet, .223 on me, bet these bitches tickle then sting, 30 Gs on me, I might just go spend it on a piece, 30 grams on me, hit it one time I got 60 G’s, believe it or not, I go Ripley’s on a beat…”

Courtesy of 0 Degrees Entertainment comes a matching visual that sees Louie Ray and other peers like RMC Mike and YN Jay showing their support for the incarcerated Rio, complete with “free Rio” t-shirts, stacks of money, and more. In addition, viewers can also catch some footage of Rio’s hometown throughout.

Early last year, Rio Da Yung OG was hit with a five-year prison sentence for a gun possession charge (“in furtherance of a drug crime”) that he received back in 2019. Shortly after the sentencing, he took to social media to spread the unfortunate news to his fans:

“I’m doing 5 years for some shit I ain’t know was going on but I take full responsibility cause I know what comes wit this street shit. Thank you god for putting me through this situation cause it really opened my eyes and show me how to deal wit people.”
