June 2nd, 2016
Wes Point Urban Radio presents incredible talent and one of New York’s finest,
CO ICE –
Twenty-four year old up and coming artist Co Ice, was born and raised in Harlem. At ten years old he began to be inspired by artist Jay-Z, and discovered his ability to flow and write rhymes. His new found passion for penning rhymes prepared him for an unexpected freestyle contest in Harlem, NY where he was presented the opportunity to showcase his talents and freestyle for Rappers Fat Joe and N.O.R.E. at Rucker Park. A few years later the thirteen year old started to realize his passion for music and take it more seriously when he had an early career altering experience once again at Rucker Park, and was given the opportunity to freestyle for his rap inspiration Jay Z, and won $500 for his lyrical ability.
Later on Co Ice went to graduate as one of the schools star basketball players of Brien Mcmahon in Norwalk, CT. Ice’s Hoop dreams could no longer satisfy him, and he was ready to fulfill his burning desire to pursue music full time. Co Ice began performing wherever he could to be heard and in 2011, he was given the opportunity to open up for former Roc-a-Fella Records/Def Jam Artist Peedi Crakk at a Club in Camden, NJ. In 2012 Co Ice’s lyrical skills and stage presence caught the attention of Lady H and Artist Jim Jones, which then gave him his start working with Snow Gang Imprint. In this time Co Ice performed at a few colleges along the east coast, and was able to collaborate with MTV’s My Sweet 16, Darnell Robinson and record a track titled, “Booty Work” which became a hit on the blogs!
After a year and a half with Snow Gang, Co Ice decided to try his luck as a solo artist. Since then Co Ice has performed for the Xyayx Studios Showcase Series, Santos Party House, Josiah Hotwire Summer Madness Showcase, Atlanta, GA 2015 A3C FESTIVAL, Sirius XM SHADE 45 radio with (HOT 97’s) DJ Kay Slay and more! Look out for this rising star, he’s passionate about his music and is ready to take any stage by storm! @goodmusic #rap #flow #fire #heat Check out Co Ice page @co_ice_ @djself #whosupnext #mixtape.
