Staten Island’s four-man staff Icewater is led by Polite, a rapper who would have been an associate from the Wu-Tang Clan if it wasn’t for the actual fact that he was incarcerated as the Wu were first getting agreed upon to a label. A longtime friend of Wu member Raekwon, Polite would afterwards arrive in the American Cream Group as well as the Ghostface-associated staff Theodore Device. In 2000 he produced Icewater with Tummy, P.C. (Paulie Caskets), and D.C. (Donnie Money) and premiered the group by guesting on Raekwon’s 2003 discharge The Lex Gemstone Tale. The full-length debut Polluted Drinking water arrived in 2007 over the Babygrande label.
