On the 5th of January, Ice Box started the year with a smashing trap EP “Like a Star 0.9” which he calls the trailer for the main “Like a Star” project. It was received greatly by his listeners and for sure has made many new fans because of it. Just on the 2nd of this month, he surprised us with his “Free Smoke [B.O Mix]” freestyle video on Facebook.
Kumasi based artiste and the B.O Society front-liner “Ice Box” takes us through his life through his music, and this EP is not different.
His first track “Anyway”, the artist talks about the hustle to be successful in Ghana isn’t an easy task but regardless, he’s determined to make it by any means.
“Glory” which is number two on the EP is about him praying for his mum and working hard to be a winner to gain the glory.
In “Saint” he talks about disappointments from some ladies he knew from way back before he started gaining grounds and he talks about his bad habits too.
“Tomorrow” is the track he talks about future plans and how he’s grinding to meet all the plans made.
“A Man” talks about his enthusiasm to make things happen in life for him and his team.
He features his fellow music colleagues like Mr Jace, Jay Buzzles, Kwesi Kevin and his frequent collaborator Chief Kellz who released his latest tape “Trap Nights in Kentinkrono” last month.
Production credit goes to A Million Drums & nORTHS. All the tracks on “Like a Star 0.9” was mixed by Apya who has been working with Ice Box since day one.

The Hip-Hop culture in Ghana has always been here, and a lot of guys including me are heavily influenced by it. Hip-Hop is the way we live, and it’s not negative as many portray it. As the Hip-Hop community continues to grow in Kumasi, it has become necessary for the organization of street cyphers to bring enthusiasts together. Hood Cyphaz was a success, hence Pool Cyphaz is envisioned to be even better. A cypher is basically a group of people assembling in one place to participate in freestyle rap sessions.
The event is slated to happen on Dec 30 at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) poolside. A lot of dope emcees are lined up to give you full satisfaction of the art. We’re talking about emcees like BKC Music acts i.e. Kofi Jamar, Obey and Sketchy, Blurr, Ice Box, and a host of others.
The event will be hosted by YFM presenter, Koo Sebor, and it’s been put up together by the All Black crew. Other side attractions involve swimming competition and twerk sessions. The rates for the event are as follows: Advance: 10 cedis, Single: 15 cedis, Double: 25 cedis.
Oseikrom people, come witness heavily talented rappers do endless freestyles full of bars, metaphors, literary devices and punchlines. Follow @SteezeHub on our various social media platforms for updates on Pool Cyphaz. Track updates using the hashtag #PoolCyphaz17.
Ice Box announced his forthcoming project “Like a Star” on his social media platforms a couple of weeks ago and #LaS is the hashtag he has been using since. This project is set for release on 27th October. This is much expected because of his 2017 releases; “OvdaRoof” with Chief Kellz, “Is It Revenge… Best Served Cold EP”, “Free Smoke [B.O Mix]”, and a couple of features and performances on big platforms.
But before he drops the main project “Like a Star”, he’s decided to bless us with “Like a Star 0.9” to cool his audience because his last release was in May, and fans have starved too long for his art.
This is a 5-track EP and it features acts like Chief Kellz, Mr Jace, Kwesi Kevin and Jay Buzzles. Beats were produced by nORTHS, Trapgod and Southside. Apya mixed and mastered the project. All artworks were designed by Kweku Drew.
