Iceman keeping his hustle alive for 2010
Entertainer Iceman - File
As he had predicted, 2010 is off to a good start for Iceman. With his songs Mischievous and Keep My Hustle Alive having good momentum, the singer is also making a name for himself among the teenage population as he participates on the KLAS FM School Tour.
"Mischievous, which is on the 'Sweat Shop' rhythm, is really doing well, getting heavy rotation on radio, in the clubs and in the streets," said the singer. "It's a dancehall/calypso song looking at the 'girls giving trouble' with their anatomy."
And while the song is getting great play now, Iceman suspects it could become greater in a few weeks.
"Because of its blend of dancehall and calypso, I am anticipating it is going to do well at carnival," he said.
Iceman is also on the verge of releasing another single, Put Your Hands Up, which does not yet have a release date but is expected to be his follow-up to Mischievous.
Like Mischievous, another of Iceman's songs, Keep My Hustle Alive, is getting some love from radio. He says Hitz 92 FM and Hot 102 have been especially generous and he appreciates it because he feels the song can do better. The song was released on the House A Stars label and was released late last year. Producer Octavious 'Vigour' Muir is planning to produce a video medley featuring all the artistes on the rhythm including KipRich and Déjà Vu.
Iceman has been singing Keep My Hustle Alive during the school tour in which he is currently engaged along with label mates D-Lynx and D Major.
"We've been to Waterford High, Edith Dalton James and Green Pond High in Montego Bay and the students have been giving us good support," he said, adding that during the tours he and his fellow entertainers have been spreading and reinforcing positive messages to the youth.
Meantime, he and his label mates have been hitting the streets pushing his songs at local dances and events including Weddy Weddy, Fresh Fridayz, Blitz Tuesdays and Wet Sundays.
