[Ice Water Day (Interview)]
year we ran an
interview with Stumik from Raekwon’s Ice Water
Inc. crew, we talked about the upcoming projects he
had planned and the possibility of a second Ice
Water Inc. album. Fans who have been following the
man on Facebook, surely will have noticed his
involvement with the United Nations World Water Day
Events which started last week in Europe.
Wu-International was intrigued with how this
involvement came about and managed to quickly get a
hold of Stumik right before he took the plane to
Ukraine for this event. While the main focus was off
course this good cause the MC was engaged in, we
also asked him about the status of the solo and
group projects he had mentioned on our last
interview. Enjoy !
I like to say thanks first and foremost for
taking the time to answer these questions, highly
appreciated, and will also point out that nothing will be
altered, edited or changed when this is published online.
