ICE KID TALKS CULTURE CLASH, CHIPMUNK, WILEY & MORE W/ MOBO


Everyone was in shock as Ice Kid took the stage with Wiz Khalifa and Taylor Gang at Culture Clash, against the like of Wiley and Chip. One of grime's hottest prospects in the mid 2000's didn't take well to the spotlight and faded away, even though he was mentored by Wiley along the way. Thankfully, he did make a return and Mobo caught up with him.



Your appearance at Culture Clash came as a real surprise as we hadn’t seen you for a number of years. How did it all come about?

Basically, I got a phone call from Stylo G that morning asking if I wanted to perform at Culture Clash that evening. It's quite funny because I was in two minds about going, it was a split second decision and I thought to myself just go for it.

What was it like being back on stage and seeing the crowd’s reaction?

To stand in front of 20,000 people alongside Wiz and Taylor Gang was probably one of the most overwhelming experiences I've had so far.

There was a moment when the camera captured Chip’s reaction when you hit the stage. Out of everyone, he looked the most surprised. Have you seen it?

Yeah, I've seen it. To be honest, it was the first time we've seen each other in a very long time. Really, I was just as shocked as he was. I nearly stopped spitting to say "what's up" [Laughs].

You were one of Wiley’s premiere artists when he signed you to his label, alongside Chip. What happened to your deal and relationship with Wiley and Eskibeat?


Wiley is my brother. In the early stages of my career up until now, he has played a crucial part and all I can say is I'm thankful. God bless Wiley.
  

In an interview with Not for The Radio, Wiley said, “The difference between them two was that Chipmunk had more hunger and more “I want it” and Ice Kid had more “I know I’m good.”  Would you say that receiving so much praise very early on in your career left you feeling a bit too comfortable at that time?  

Not at all, I never really felt comfortable being the centre of attention, it just ain't my thing. If I could reach people through my music without the fame that would be an ideal situation. I just wasn't ready for all of that and the timing was not right.
