[Ice Water Day (Interview)]

Interview Date: 27th March 2012

Conducted By: Dark 7 Invader, The Reccollectah

Special thanks to Stumik for his input and cooperation. 



Last 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.
