Special Guest: Da Boi Ice
When you think of Harlem you think of a rich history of black expression art and legendary figures from music, politics and the streets. Hoping to add his name to such a great legacy is DA BOI ICE.
Growing up in the borough that brought you Dougie fresh, Big L ,Ma$e, Dipset and Asap Rocky Da Boi Ice is ready to add his two cents to that dollar. Da Boi Ice fell in love with hip hop in the early 90’s and with each day the love affair grew stronger and stronger. After losing his mother at the tender age 7 Da Boi Ice born Devon Bryce had to learn a lot of things on his own.
Leaving school and being in the streets Da Boi Ice quickly understood that he could end up like a few of his friends and a lot of the street legends before him dead or in jail. With this on his mind Da Boi Ice started to take his music seriously and wanted to turn it into a career from a hobby. Seeing his determination and the fire in his eyes his older brother introduced him to Hit music producer Mista Raja.
After hearing Da Boi Ice for awhile Mista Raja took Da Boi Ice under his wing and the Coalition Forces Music umbrella. Working on his craft and delivering his passionate point of it has to be another way for this generation to make it Da Boi Ice Dropped his mixtape 2 Cool 4 Skool. Da Boi Ice has a very unique voice that cuts through production like a hot knife through butter and it compliments the track in a sonic unison to create a wonderful experience for the listener. Not being afraid to stand alone or to work Da Boi Ice has the potential to go down in the books as one of the best to ever do it . HARLEM WE GOT 1 !
Special Guest: Hemi
Strong words guided by an even stronger conviction. “Rap is too easy. Everyone thinks they can rap because they made music in a studio,” complains Bronx heavyweight Hemi.” “You don’t play videogames and say you are a basketball player? Too many people apply that mentality to music. It is a craft. Not a hobby for me.”
The South Bronx native feels strongly about the right way to approach his life’s passion. Born David Harris, the Morrisana resident grew up in the epicenter of pop culture’s breakthrough genre. An early affinity for music guided him to the St. Augustine School of the Arts where he learned how to play a multitude of instruments, read sheet music and perform. His formal training shaped his respect for the process of making music. Hours rehearsing are ingrained in his work ethic and the catalyst behind his push to make it the music business. While building a love for the creative arts he also tested his talents as a city ball player. One of the timeless avenues where early dedication can lead to lifelong rewards and recognition. “I was a knucklehead in growing up so I didn’t realize the opportunities i had in front of me.” Too much trouble and not enough focus lead him to bounce around to different high schools growing up.
Even though his talent shuttled him alongside some of New York’s top basketball players, his independent attitude derailed him as well. “Not having focus causes you to learn things the hard way. I got kicked out of All Hallows and Rice High Schools growing up because I wasn’t focused on school. My independent attitude didn’t sit well in that catholic school environment i guess.” It wasn’t until a failed attempt at Junior College in Midland Odessa, Texas did Hemi give up on his hoop dreams. But it wasn’t bitter sweet. Being on his own in Texas gave him an opportunity to experience real life decision making and open his ears to new music. “I hated screw music at first, but now i appreciate getting different tastes of music. You have to open your playlist sometimes.” His stint in a different environment put him in a different state of mind, helping his music take center stage in his life. Once back in New York he linked up with childhood friend, Roger “Mista Raja” Greene. A&R extraordinaire, Roger has worked with Lil Kim, P.Diddy, Roscoe Dash, Maino and BG.
Recipient of a BMI songwriter of the year award, he has a primal instinct when it comes to making a hit record. Since linking together the two have been working on producing new music and developing Hemi’s sound. “Every time I stepped foot back into the Bronx I would run into little Dave until one day he wasn’t little any more and said he wanted to do music,” Roger explains. “He was so determined to do music the name Hemi naturally fit him, because of his drive.” That little push has turned into a huge advantage once Hemi created a buzz with his soon to be released mixtpae, “I Am Hemi Hosted By Hot97’s DJ Big Ben.” Fueled by the street friendly single, “Blow It”, the Bronx newcomer now has his eyes set on staying focused and crafting his next hit.
