TONY AWARD winning Poet “Black Ice,” September 29th, 2012 at the Scarlett Tree located at 801 NE 65th St Suite C Seattle, WA 98115

Introducing Lamar Manson, known throughout the spoken word community as Black Ice. Black Ice is a prolific artist, whose stage performances bridge the gap between hip-hop and poetry. Hip-hop poet Black Ice began spreading his words of revolution back in 1993

Once Russell Simmons caught his act, the poet's quest for nationwide recognition kicked into overdrive. Black Ice went on to appear on five consecutive seasons of the Simmons-produced Def Poetry Jam on HBO, which led to a starring role in the Tony Award-winning "Def Poetry Jam on Broadway."

Black Ice is also the exclusive voiceover artist for the audio versions of the Russell Simmons books “Do You: 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success” and the 2011 release “Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All”.

It was 2004 when he made his breakthrough into hip-hop, appearing on Method Man's Tical 0: The Prequel and Pete Rock's Soul Survivor II.

In 2006, he would team with producer Eric "Booty" Greene and release his debut album, The Death of Willie Lynch, on the Koch label. That same summer, he opened for R&B superstar Mary J. Blige on her world tour.
