Tune In: Kold x Windy Premieres on Thursday, January 5, 2023 at 10 PM ET/9 PM CT on WE tv
Fueled by the authentic sounds and raw energy surrounding the drill music movement, Kold x Windy follows rising hip hop and drill star Malika “Kold” Wise (Sh’Kia Augustin, “Black Lightning”); who is desperate to create a better life for her and her son in Chicago’s south side. Her trusted confidant and group member Renee “Windy” Johnson (Nijah Brenea, “Rap Sh!t”), is a rapper with a strong dedication to the city streets. As Malika’s career begins to ignite, the challenges she faces start to stack up. Her lifelong hustle — credit card fraud — catches up with her, and rival drill artists start to view her as a threat. When new love arises, the pressures of making music, her hustle and her troubled son may stand in the way…alongside Renee who does not support Malika’s desire to change her image and will stop at nothing to prevent it. Will Malika be able to break free of her life of street crime to achieve her music dreams and save her family?
The series also stars Brely Evans (“Ambitions”) as GeGe, Kaja Brielle (“Black Lightning”) as Shelly Winter, Kiyanne Muhammad (“Love and Hip Hop: New York”) as Temperance “Temper” Davis, Solo Lucci (“Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood”) as Pop Off, and more.
