Cold as Ice is the debut album by rapper Charli Baltimore, released promotionally on August 3, 1999 through Epic Records. It was originally titled "To Hell & Back", with a release date of April 28, 1999.[3] The album did not make it to any Billboard charts since it did not see a public release, but the single "Stand Up" reached #9 on the Hot Rap Singles. Guests on the album include Ghostface Killah, Da Brat, Lady of Rage, Gangsta Boo, Mobb Deep, Cam'ron, N.O.R.E., and producer DJ Premier. Baltimore also recorded a collaboration with former friend Ma$e entitled "Ice," but the song's prominent sample of Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" could not be cleared. The album has now been released as a digital download on iTunes, with "Money" being a separate download from the Woo Soundtrack.

Unreleased Material[edit]

In 2002, it was revealed that producer Irv Gotti had produced two tracks for the album in 1998 but never made the final cut of the album.[4]

"Ice" featuring Mase (produced by Tumblin' Dice) was not included, as sample clearance could not be obtained for the samples of Queen and David Bowie's 1981 song "Under Pressure".
