Inspired by early Hip Hop of the '80s and the movie Krush Groove, Blaq Ice decided to try his hand at being a rap artist. After a brief encounter with a local Rap group called the M.O.C. crew, his passion for words, writing and performing finally came to life. He cultivated his silky-smooth style in the Englewood community in his hometown of Chicago, where he also founded the international P.O.E.T organization in 1990. Over the next 25 years his career would go from local to international.
