BLACK ICE TOURING THE
COUNTRY WITH MARY J. BLIGE

 

(August 29th, 2006)—
Brooklyn, NY — KOCH Records is thrilled to
announce the release of The Death of Willie Lynch
, the debut album by renowned poet Black Ice. The album hits streets on September 5th, 2006
and features artists Musiq Soulchild, Natalie Stewart of Floetry, Vee and Chyna
Black.

 

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. In an unusual move in today’s multi-producer projects, Black
Ice opted to create The Death Of Willie Lynch
with one
producer, Eric Greene Jr., a phenomenal young producer who has been blazing a
trail of his own. A drummer at heart, Eric has kept a steady tempo of rising notoriety,
touring with multi-platinum recording artists Jill Scott, Floetry, and
Pharrell. In a very organic manner, Black Ice and Eric have combined to revive
the notion of the Hip-Hop concept album. The Death of Willie Lynch
is as
thoroughly entertaining as it is socially relevant.

 

At the
personal request of superstar singer Mary J. Blige, Black Ice joined her for
The Breakthrough Tour scheduled for more than 30 venues nationwide this summer.

 

Black Ice has
lent his genius to the Live 8 concert in Philadelphia, and has made feature TV
appearances on BET (Live 8 Concert Special, Rap City The Basement and 106th
& Park) and NBC (Showtime at the Apollo), in addition to starring in five
consecutive seasons of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam. The New York Post has rated
his live performance “diamond brilliant”. He was cast as a lead
member in Def Poetry on Broadway, which went on to win the 2003 Tony Award for
Best Special Theatrical Event. Black Ice’s talents are also showcased on
releases by Pete Rock, Method Man and Fabolous.

 

In addition to
releasing his album, The Death of Willie Lynch
, Black Ice
has just completed the Hoodwatch Movement Mixtape Volume I
.  He
also plans on releasing a book of his prayers, entitled “Me & God,”
a five year chronicle of Black Ice’s journal writings.
