Multi-platinum-selling hip-hop legend drops hot new summer hit ‘Black Lambo’
LOS ANGELES, CA – Do you know who rapper Spice 1 is? If not, you should. His musical resume speaks loudly for itself. Anyone who knows anything about the history of hip-hop recognizes his significance to the game – and they recognize it immediately. In fact, his first album on Jive sold 900K copies with Spice 1 alone (no features). He never accepts defeat … in any form.
He has multiple platinum-selling albums and singles, and most recently released a track and remix with the legendary Snoop Dogg called “Can’t 4 Get” (Remix: “Let it Fly”). He was a close friend to the late Tupac Shakur, with whom he collaborated with on many songs for both artists’ albums. In fact, he was in the studio with Tupac mere hours before the hip-hop legend was shot and killed in Las Vegas later that night. He – along with fellow artist Kokane – were recording the song “Fame” with Tupac at the time; a song that is believed to be the last song that Tupac ever recorded.
Spice 1 is your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. Biggie Smalls was once asked in an interview and he gave big props to the Bay Area boss! Both Young Jeezy and legend Snoop Dogg can frequently be seen paying respect to Spice 1 all over social media, so it should come as no surprise that he has a hot new track featuring a collaboration between Spice 1 and Snoop Dogg. After his deal with Jive ended, Spice 1 learned the “business” of the game for himself and became more savvy, which now allows him to assert more creative control over his art and profit more from his obvious inner genius as an artist – very similar to how other artists he came up with have done. Throughout his music Spice 1 pays homage to the rappers he came up listening to, and was more than ecstatic to honor pioneer and rap genius Slick Rick with an adaptation of the beat to the smash hit “Children’s Story” (1988). His latest offering to the world is the hot summer hit “Black Lambo.”
“It’s a remix of one of my previous songs from two years ago,” Spice 1 said. “It’s kind of like my way of showing the world that I can do a little bit of everything. It’s almost an experiment of me going into uncharted waters by doing this on my own as an independent artist. It’s the first time I’ve ever had control of the marketing and promotion and every aspect of releasing a new song. It’s exciting for me, and I can’t wait to see how far my music and investments take me.”
Spice 1 (which is an acronym for Sex, Pistols, Indo, Cash and Entertainment) originally hails from Hayward, California. His first EP, “Let It Be Known,” was certified Platinum, as his follow-up projects “Spice 1” and “187 He Wrote” were certified gold. He released six albums under Jive Records, along with one greatest hits album. Over the course of his career he has amassed 14 platinum and gold plaques.
Spice 1 has never stopped grinding. He loves creating music and performing and is booked steadily for private events and on shows with other well-known artists from his initial active years. Over the years, many people have considered him one of the most under-recognized professional rappers. But Spice 1 isn’t letting anyone’s
opinion in the matter stop him – ever. In fact his last release “Platinum OG” (2019) was recognized on iTunes as it peaked at No. 11 on their charts, which allowed him to add yet another hot plaque on his wall. This, of course, reiterates the point that he is still a force – the vengeful “Black Lambo” is solid proof of that. It is just the first of many more hits to come, and he is excited for his old fans and new to come along for the ride!
