Pay attention to the drums and you’ll know if you’re rocking to an Ice Rocks beat. Hard, crisp, and live is that consistent sound, whether it’s with artists like Meyhem Lauren and Eastkoast or his own crew, DXA. From finding inspiration in legends like RZA and Large Pro to forming his DXA crew with his boys, Ice Rocks’ foundation is rooted in hip-hop. On the rise as a talented producer with an incredible sound, Ice Rocks talks working with Meyhem Lauren on the new More Cashmere album, the importance of vinyl, working with Chopped Herring, his production process, and much more in this exclusive interview. As a bonus, Ice Rocks lets an exclusive beat go. If you’ve got what it takes, rock to it and tweet it to @icerocksdxa and @seven3zero and you may hear it on a few sites. And either way, check out the jewels Ice Rocks drops in this dope interview.

A Better Tomorrow will be released on December 1 via Warner Bros., Wu-Tang Clan’s new home. Listen to “A Better Tomorrow” after the jump.
