Posted June 29, 2018, 9:21 p.m.

Twin Cities + Chicago hip-hop collaboration SIMS x Air Credits x ICETEP have dropped a video for "Hologramme" off their soon to release debut Artería Verité. Consisting of Sims (Doomtree), Air Credits (ShowYouSuck and Steve Reidell) and producer ICETEP, the effort is described as "rap music from the near and bleak future; or more aptly, from next week’s dystopia."

The album itself will release on August 3 on Doomtree Records. Sims and ShowYouSuck share rapping duties while Reidell (also of The Hood Internet) and ICETEP share production.
