Biography

Having recorded with the likes of NE-YO, Miguel, Kurupt, Devin the Dude, MC LYTE, Erick Sermon, C-BO, etc., former Black Ice Records/Universal Records recording artist iRoc Omega is ready to resurface and gain the popularity that previously eluded him.

Born in Chicago, iRoc would move to Columbus, GA and Far Rockaway Queens, NY before settling in Anchorage, AK. Little did his family know what the future would have in store for them. “My family fell the F*ck apart!” he would state in a recent interview. “My dad started using drugs and f*cking with my new best friend’s mother who also happened to be a prostitute. At the time, we lived in Mountain View which was and still is one of the town’s poorest areas and it was quickly spreading around the hood that my dad was a pimp. Come to find out, it was true and my mom would soon ask for a divorce.”

For the next 10 plus years, life was hard and would only get harder for the soon to be rapper. After the divorced finalized, he recalls what would happen next and in the coming years. “After my dad didn’t win custody of me, the man stopped picking me up and just disappeared from my life more and more. I remember going to him and his new family’s house about a year later and seeing that my old best friend had the whole upstairs to himself! I was like, damn! Me, my mom and my brother damn near starving and they’re over here livin’ like stars or something. By this time, my mom had pawned or sold all of our most valuable possessions and we were reduced to watching a 13” black and white tv that my aunt had let us borrow.
