Kold x Windy follows rising hip-hop and drill star Malika aka Kold (Augustin), 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 aka Windy (Brenea) is a rapper with a strong dedication to the city streets.
As Malika’s career begins to ignite, her lifelong hustle – credit card fraud – catches up with her and rival drill artists see her as a threat. Faced with increasing pressure, she soon finds herself at a crossroads and must decide which path to choose.
However, Renee—who also dabbles in credit card fraud—disagrees with her bestie’s desire to change their image and will stop at nothing to prevent it. Will Malika be able to break free of her life of crime to achieve her music dreams and save her family?
