Environment, but I felt that was kinda corny so I just left it as Mr. L.I.V.E. LIVE stands for Iceberg. Period. If you listen to “Fuck Tha Other Side,” the part about “bitch I’m live,” and “Iceberg live,” that’s me. All my shows are live, everything I cop is live, all my music is live. What videos have you put out recently? I put out a video once every two weeks. From the Mr. L.I.V.E. project, I got “On My Grind,” “Let’s Go Get Em,” “You and Me,” “Dangerous,” “Only 4 Tonight,” and “Talk Dat Shit.”

ICEBERG Words by Ms Rivercity

IceBerg is one of the most anticipated underground rappers in Miami, and pushing to be the next national act. Under the alias Billion, IceBerg released the Mr. L.I.V.E. street album earlier this year which was accompanied by several internet videos. Here he talks about his latest work and reveals what really happened with the Dunk Ryders. Are you looking for a solo deal? I’m trying to find a situation. It ain’t really the main goal, but just to solidify what I’ve already started. I’m trying to put my name in stone as far as this Southern rap shit. As far as Florida, I pretty did everythang there is to do on my own strength. I promote myself a lot – kinda like how Soulja Boy did it. But I’m looking for that team that’s gonna take me national and international. What happened with the Dunk Ryders? I don’t really like talkin’ about it too much just ‘cause it’s been up in the air. A couple people weren’t seeing eye to eye on a business tip, but it wasn’t no personal, bad, negative shit. It was business, not personal. There was 3 people in the group – me, Soup, and Fella. Soup ended up doin’ a bid in federal prison. Me and Fella was good, we still is good, but a lot of the business wasn’t all the way right. Why did you name your street album Mr. L.I.V.E.? At first I wanted to say it was Living In a Violent

I saw you leaked the intro to your next project today. Yeah, Strictly 4 The Streets. I had to do Strictly 4 The Streets for my real hardcore fans. Mr. LIVE was really more like my introduction to the bigger South, like the Carolinas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana. Everybody in Florida knows I can rap and what I’m capable of doin’. As far as Strictly 4 The Streets, I can get my snappin’ on. Like when Wayne did No Ceilings, all he did was snap. Strictly 4 The Streets is that rappin’ side of me. I leaked to the intro to tell people it’s coming. This part 2. If you do your homework, Strictly 4 The Streets Pt. 1 was a lot of gutter shit. Are there some other upcoming artists you’re working with in Florida? As far as industry niggas, they’re fake and flaw to me. I don’t really fuck wit’ niggas like that. It’s a couple niggas I’ll work wit. It’s a group called MGT representing Carol City. They on “Let’s Go Get Em” wit’ me. I’m fuckin’ wit’ Young Cash heavy. We got a mixtape coming out. I still fuck wit’ Trick [Daddy] all day. It’s promoters and DJs I fuck wit’ heavy, but they street niggas that do this music shit. They ain’t just music niggas tryna be street. That’s why I don’t be at these industry get-togethers. Where can people find you? I ain’t really been fuckin’ wit’ too much heavy ‘cause if you do your research and put your ear to the street, Miami got a lot of crazy shit goin’ on. The death rate went up a lot in Miami. I try to stay out the way as far as the streets. There’s really no way to duck the streets unless you hang on the beach, but I don’t fit in wit’ ‘em. So I just play Playstation and fuck wit’ the cars real heavy. I’ve got 3 cars: the Camaro, the donk, and an El Camino. Do you have any shows Memorial Day Weekend? I’m at Club Ink on Saturday. People from everywhere like West Palm and Broward come down to that club. It’s a hot spot in Miami. // OZONE MAG // B-15
