The first single to be released off the 10-song project is “That’s What It Is”, which finds CZVG slinging irreverent but real commentary on the state of the world & his own rise, alongside Rawkus Records alumni Shabaam Sahdeeq over an up-tempo, horn heavy instrumental from producer Jake Palumbo, who is handling all production of the Water LP reprising his role from C-zar Van Gogh’s two previous retail projects, 2013’s This Time Next Year & 2011’s Hood Stimulus Package.

Shabaam Sahdeeq’s 2014 album Keepers Of The Lost Art –  winner of the 2014 Underground Music Awards Independent Album Of The Year award was mixed & mastered at SpaceLAB Recordings, NYC by Jake Palumbo. In addition, Van Gogh recently appeared on Jake Palumbo’s 2015 single & music video “Tuffalupagus.”

“That’s What It Is” will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, & all digital retailers & streaming services August 9th. Water: Drink Or Swim will hit all digital retailers this fall.
