Black Ice, poet and spoken word artist that has been featured on HBO’s “Def Poetry” and recently hosted a special poetry showcase at The Egg in Albany in April, has a new CD coming out on September 5.
“Black Ice earned his respect as one of the premiere wordsmiths on Russell Simmons’ “Def Poetry Jam.” Known across the nation as one of the most gifted poets of his generation, Ice has moved crowds to the depths of their deepest emotion with his special brand of spoken word. This fall, KOCH Records and world famous DJ Jazzy Jeff are proud to present Black Ice in a light you have never seen him in before. “The Death of Willie Lynch” showcases his skills with wordplay over 12 tracks.
