Iceberg Black has carved out a lane of his own in hip-hop, using self-produced beats and a prolific work rate to set himself apart from the surplus of rappers in today’s game. As an artist who’s constantly creating, he does not sacrifice quality in his work – he’s curated a distinctively gritty style, accentuated by production consisting of sparse melodies and booming 808s. He’s a self-made artist in every sense, making his come-up in the uber-competitive New York hip-hop scene even more impressive. Iceberg Black made his 2021 debut with the captivating music video for “Spaceships & Hoodbitches,” which is the lead single off his latest album, “The Mothership,” now available worldwide on all streaming platforms.
Directed by Shomi Patwary, the video takes viewers on a futuristic journey through Iceberg Black’s hometown, as he flexes in dapper attire and fancy cars. The video feels otherworldly and perfectly complements the track, which feels and sounds well ahead of its time. It’s a mesmerizing on-screen performance from Iceberg Black and sets a high bar for his visuals going forward.
Iceberg Black self-produced “Spaceships & Hoodbitches,” as he does with most of his music. It is his best performing track to date, racking up over four and a half million streams on Spotify alone. His delivery is confident and effortless – it sounds like he’s merely talking into the mic, yet the track brings enough energy to create a mosh pit out of first-time listeners.
