Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Producer To Watch- Dj Iceman (@dj_iceman)

Over the last year Dj Iceman has been on a tear. after stepping back from djing after a 33 year run,he started making beats. since he started,he joined up with Northwest producer supergroup FFU (Filthy Fingers United) and have had song placements on 3 of their releases. he released his own beat tape and did over 70,000 on Datpiff, got signed to a small label out of Greece and released an EP,and has had over 200 up and coming rappers spit fire on one of his beats on the Rapchat app. so it looks like 2018 will hopefully be looking up for the Wu-Tang dj and Big Boss Beatz head honcho

How does it feel to have this kind of success so fast?
I really didnt expect this. im humbled and thankful.

Who are you main beatmaking influences?
There are so many. Premo,9th Wonder,Pete Rock,Snowgoons,Harry Fraud. just anybody who makes that good Boom-Bap.

What equipment do you use?
Right now i'm just using a Maschine MK2,an Akai MPK Mini keyboard and Ozone 8 for mastering.

How do you feel about the state of the industry today,especially since Boom-Bap isn't the most marketable sound right now?
Just because its not the biggest on the charts,theres still a market for it. look how many emcees are out there doing their thing. right now it's an amazing time to be a beatmaker. there are so many lanes out there, you don't have to follow any wave,you can make your own wave and be successful.

So whats next?
Im hoping for a few more app placements,im thinking about releasing another beat tape,hopefully this summer. in the meantime i'm just gonna keep pumpin out good quality boom-bap
