Born in Chicago, iRoc would move to Columbus, GA and Far Rockaway Queens, NY before settling in Anchorage, AK. With his parents divorcing soon after, and life in Anchorage being similar to any other city, the next 10 plus years was hard and would only get harder for the soon to be rapper, with poverty setting in and forcing him to resort to a faster way of life in the streets. Initially, and just as something to do, iRoc started rapping with some of the other kids in school, but as countless people recognized his talent, it would soon become a passion not yet strong enough to overpower the pull of fast money. Life in the fast-lane would lead him to experience the loss of many friends and even his own freedom, facing a temporary stint within the system. Upon his release, the choice was finally made to pursue music a lot more seriously.
iRoc secured his first major recording contract and started working on “Weight of My World.” Initially regarded as one of the label's anticipated releases and featuring tracks with veteran acts such as Ne-Yo, Kurupt, Erick Sermon, Miguel, MC LYTE, and Devin the Dude (most known for Dr. Dre's "I just Wanna F*ck You"), the album ended up being shelved along with iRoc being dropped from the label. Discouraged by the cold-heartedness of the major label machine, he decided to forge ahead and build his fan base independently
Now with music airing on Pandora and other platforms throughout the world, in addition to performing on the bill with Kelly Rowland, Outkast, DMX, Paul Wall, 112, Warren G., SWV, Doug E. Fresh, E-40, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, and many more, iRoc Omega has been in circulation on the underground scene for years. Dissatisfied with the former Black Ice Records/Universal Records recording artist's debut independent release of "The Coldest Fire", diehard rap fans were revived when he dropped "The Coldest FIRE: RELOADED and REDEEMED" six months later. Now, promising to return his underground roots, his upcoming release entitled "Forever the Coldest Fire" is in high expectations and anticipation from his diehard fans.
