Sometime in October, Nigeria’s foremost hip-hop artiste, Ice Prince leaked a short video clip of a track, ‘teardrops’. This was prior to the release of his third studio album tagged ‘Jos To The World.’
There wasn’t any doubt that Ice Prince had been cooking up something pretty deep the whole time he’s been silent. He rapped on how he’s made a lot of mistakes, some of which he is currently living with now.
A little was revealed on how his mother used to love his dad but he was always on the road. Until reality caught up with her after realizing that his dad’s been gone road tripping for two months without any form of communication. You know GSM phones weren’t even in existence back then, which kept her wondering how they got to that point.
See, guys in as much as i try to analyze naija vibes as my mind perceives it and how i relate to it,one way or the other, I would love to keep it a 100% with you. What i am trying to say is that i haven’t gotten around listening to his new album “Jos to the world” for some reasons but i will, ok?
I know a lot of people would be able to relate to the story behind the song teardrop. Most individuals come from dysfunctional homes like myself. Where dad cheats on mum or the other way round. Where your parents get at each other’s throats, forgetting that they are living an inedible mark on you, whether good or bad.
Well, we are not going to dwell on that but then we all know for success to be attain, dues have got to be paid.
Ice prince has paid his dues from the the time he lost his parents. That incapacitated him furthering into the university. And then to the point where he had to move from jos to squat with Djinee.
In an interview with Moet on soundcity 98.5 in Lagos, Ice prince revealed that he cries atleast three times a week every time he prays. Just thinking about how God brought him from obscurity to the limelight get him emotional. Now, that’s a grateful heart that has been through a lot to get to where he is!
When i listened to this track even though it was a snippet, it stroke a cord.
