The nephew of R&B singer Willie Hutch, Gregory Fernan Hutchinson is better known as rapper Cold 187um, leader of the early-'90s hip-hop crew Above the Law who later found a second career in 2012 when signed with the Insane Clown Posse's Psychopathic label. With Above the Law, the rapper found himself at the heart of the post-N.W.A explosion of California gangsta rap, beginning with their 1990 debut Livin' Like Hustlers and remaining successful throughout the decade. Cold 187um closed the '90s with his first solo album, 1999's Executive Decisions, which was released on West World Records, the label that would also release his 2004 effort Live from the Ghetto and 2008's Fresh Out the Pen. His affiliation with ICP began in 2002 when he appeared on the duo's album The Wraith: Shangri-La. He toured with ICP in 2011 and in 2012 announced he was signing to their label. Now taking on the nickname "the Psychopathic Assassin," Cold 187um released the concept album The Only Solution on Psychopathic in 2012. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
