How did you choose your name? Were there any names you switched from or is there any possibility of you changing your name in the future?
When I was little, like I was young, my dad used to call me and my little brother his lil souljas, and then iced out is just like you shining. So, I put iced0utsoulja. I’m a diamond soulja, I’m iced out forever. That’s how I got iced0utsoulja.
Where are you from and how long have you been making music?
I’m from AZ, born and raised. I’ve been making music for like 2 years now.
How do you feel about the progress you’ve made thus far?
I’m happy about my progress. You know, a lot of people don’t make it as far as I have, but at the same time, I know that I could go even further, and like I’m never satisfied, I always want more for myself. But as of right now, I’m pretty happy with my progress.
What are your biggest inspirations?
My inspirations right now, artist wise, are Lil Uzi Vert, I fuck with Playboi Carti, Lil Tracy, Sickboyrari, Chief Keef; I be feeling like Sosa. That’s as far as artists, I have other inspirations. I take a lot of inspiration from rock music, designers, I take a lot of inspiration from everywhere to be honest. I try to combine it all. It’s all who I am.
Are you trying to make a statement through making music or are you just doing it for fun?
Yes & no about making a statement. You know, I don’t really have nothing to prove. But at the same time, I want to show people that you can do anything; like look at what I’m doing. Bruh, i’ve been doing this for like 2 years now, and I’m rocking shows, I’m doing this, I’m having photoshoots, so yeah I guess I’m tryna make a statement. But, at the same time, I’m going to have fun with it.
Are you currently working on any projects?
