New Video: Le Ice Shares Woozy Banger “Whap”

Le Ice is a rising Laval, Quebec-born and-based emcee. He started rapping when he turned 12 — and when he started, he knew how to stand out with a unique, sharp flow. By the time he was a teenager, the Laval-based emcee left his family home, and was on the streets, hustling to survive. His experienced helped forge a steely mindset and an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit.

Over the past few years, Le Ice has made a name for himself in the Montreal Francophone hip-hop scene with collaborations with the likes of Lary Kidd, Mike Zup, Raccoon, Shreez, and Tizzo. Building upon a growing profile within both Montreal and the rest of Quebec, the rising emcee has made the rounds of the provincial festival circuit with stops at Francos de Montreal, Metro Metro, Osheaga, and LVLUP among others.

Released last year, his full-length debut Jta l’eau pour un boute was well-received by the public, and has helped position Le Ice as an artist to watch.

His latest single, the Gavin-produced “WHAP” pairs skittering trap triplets with tweeter and woofer rattling thump, a woozy and pitchy Middle Eastern-like vocal sample, shimmering synth arpeggios and glitchy video game noises with the Laval-based emcee’s self-assured, razor sharp flow and an enormous hook. Simply put, it’s a banger.

Directed by Le Ice, the accompanying video features the Laval-based emcee and his crew at a house party, with strippers, making it rain — with American dollars, no less.
