Buffalo-bred rapper Ponzo Houdini recently starred in Griselda Films’ debut movie Conflicted alongside Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher.

Now, the Cake Boss Entertainment founder has returned with a new video for “Another Day In The Life,” which lives on his forthcoming album You Know The Vibes 2. 

Growing up with a cocaine-addicted mother, Ponzo’s journey is one of perseverance that was often interrupted by stints in jail — despite his success as a high school honor student.

“I’ve been through way too much to take the easy way out, or play the short game,” he told HipHopDX. “I know my worth and what is a fit for me. It’s why I turned down two major record deals and passed on the opportunity to play the role of Lil Murda in P-Valley. They just weren’t the right fits for me long term.

“I’ve gotten to this point with my own relentless grind, hustle and sacrifice. My own blood, sweat and life experiences. No help or investors. I’m going to do it my way — you know the vibes!”

Ponzo Houdini’s You Know The Vibes 2 is expected to arrive on February 16 via Cake Boss Life Entertainment. Until then, watch the video above and pre-order the project here.
