Khalid Alterch is better known by his stage name ICE. He got his stage name because his father owns a driving ice truck. In his youth, when he was sixteen, he already performed together with a classmate at parties in his secondary school, purely for the money, as the rapper told in an interview.
ICE has the persuasive power of a fanatical market vendor and has the special gift to conquer a place in everyone’s heart within thirty minutes with his humour, thought-provoking stories and engaging personality. With a feature on Murda’s single ‘Pistola’ and a guest appearance on Van Lange’s 101Barz session in 2018, the Netherlands was able to get a sneak-peak of this superstar in the making. In early 2019, he appeared on rapper Lange’s session on the BNN platform 101Barz. ICE signed a contract with his label Trifecta and released his debut single ‘Smith & Wesson’. This song became an instant success.
