Artist Spotlight: Co Ice “Rich Forever (Freestyle)”

Rick Ross is not the only rapper that has plans of being rich forever. New York’s up & coming rapper @SnowGang_CoIce has the same plan as Rozay. He dropped a freestyle to the seventh track off Rozay’s Rich Forever mixtape. On his version of “Rich Forver,” Ice dropped some dope lyrics about getting money, girls, hustling and driving up 8th in a new coupe. “Rich Forever” is the warm-up single off Ice’s upcoming mixtape, entitled “Long Time Coming Part 2,” which is scheduled for free download on the Interweb this spring. Listen to the track below.

Harlem Fly Boys: My Exclusive Interview With Up & Coming Rappers Co Ice & T Stacks

A few weeks ago, I stopped by Harlem’s up and coming rappers Co Ice and T Stacks studio session, in Manhattan, New York for an exclusive interview. These two fly guys from Uptown were getting out of a Benz, carrying their Louis Vuitton luggage when I pulled up. They were coming from the airport, after performing in North Carolina. Styling on them lames in True Religion jeans and Fendi belts, Co Ice and T Stacks has the style, talents and personalities to become the next big thing out of Harlem. They are currently grinding, working hard and recording tracks for their upcoming solo mixtapes as well as a Snow Gang mixtape with Lady H and a few others. While eating over a plate of soul food from Sylvia’s and drinking Rose Moet, we talked about growing up in Harlem, how the hustla’s in the 70’s and 80’s influenced their music, newly signed rapper A$AP Rocky, collaborating with Vado and much more.

Where are you guys from?

Harlem World

How long have you been rapping?

T. Stacks: My whole life. It started with poetry in elementary school.

Co Ice: 12 years.

What inspired you to rap?

Co Ice: My Life.

T Stacks: Harlem, my life, the life around me.

How did you guys linked up with Lady H and Snow Gang?

Co Ice: Just grinding and she needed some talent. Then we knew mutual people, which made it easier.

T Stacks: I knew Lady H since I was a young boy, she was always out there on 115th Street.

When I listen to “Otis” freestyle, I hear you guys rapping about hustling in the projects, did the hustlers in Harlem influenced your music?

Co Ice: Guy Fisher, Alpo and Rich Porter influenced 90% of the rappers. My man’s A-Ron and Dave who are currently in the Feds also influenced my music.

T Stacks: Rich, Po and a few other former drug lords influenced Harlem. Our city wouldn’t be Harlem without them. Harlem period influences my music, my life and the everyday struggle. Now we’re going hard with this music and are inspiring our younger man’s and that inspires us right back.
