Rapper Iceberg Slim has opened up on his recent romance with new girlfriend Juliet Ibrahim.
Speaking to Punch, he revealed that one of the things that caught his eye about the Ghanaian actress was her intelligence.
He said: “Juliet is an amazing woman. When we first met, I was intrigued by her peculiar choice in music. After we spoke for a little bit, I was blown away by her intelligence, ambition and kind heart.”
When asked about the most romantic thing he’d ever done, he said it was “to get matching tattoos with the woman that I love.”
He also spoke about his unique Mo-Hawk, which had been his trademark since he entered the industry. “The motivation behind my hairstyle is simply the reflection of my being. I’m unique; one of a kind and rare. It’s something different that sets me apart from everyone else,” he said.
Iceberg, who once made waves with a beef with rapper M.I., revealed a number of Nigerian artistes he’d love to work with.
He said, “I would love to work with Lara George, Wande Coal and Simi. I’m probably their biggest fan, and they don’t even know it.”
He revealed one of his most humbling experiences to date however, was working with Ja Rule.
He said: “The collaboration wasn’t planned. I was in the studio with Buck 3000, recording a remix to Plies’ Plenty Money. When we were done, we sat there playing it back, Ja Rule walked in. He was singing along with us while the song was on playback for about five minutes, then he looked over at me, and in his deep husky voice, he said, ‘Yo Ice, can I jump on this joint with you?” And the rest is history. It was a humbling experience, and I’m forever grateful.”
