Biography

Ice-T (given birth to Tracy Marrow) offers shown to be among hip-hop’s most articulate and intelligent superstars, in addition to among its most frustrating. At his greatest, the rapper provides written among the better portraits of ghetto lifestyle and gangsters, in addition to among the better public commentary hip-hop provides produced. Just normally, he can put on sexism and gratuitous assault, and even after that his rhymes are smart and biting. Ice-T’s greatest recordings will always be manufactured in conjunction with solid collaborators, be it the Bomb Squad or Jello Biafra. Along with his music, Ice-T provides made a mindful effort to earn the vast market of white man children, as his regular excursions along with his heavy metal music group Body Count display. Even while, he provides withstood a continuing barrage of criticism and controversy to become respected figure not merely within the music press, however the mainstream mass media aswell. Although he was among the leading statistics of Californian hip-hop within the ’80s, Ice-T was created in Newark, NJ., after that moved to LA at age 12. While he was in senior high school, he became enthusiastic about rap while he visited Crenshaw SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL in South Central LA. Ice-T had taken his name from Iceberg Slim, a pimp who composed books and poetry. Ice-T utilized to memorize lines of Iceberg Slim’s poetry, reciting them for close friends and classmates. After he still left senior high school, he documented many undistinguished 12″ singles in the first ’80s. He also made an appearance within the low-budget hip-hop movies Rappin’, Breakin’, and Breakin’ II: Electric powered Boogaloo as he was attempting to establish a profession. Ice-T finally arrived a major-label record cope with Sire Information in 1987, liberating his debut recording, Rhyme Pays. Within the record, he’s backed by DJ Aladdin and manufacturer Afrika Islam, who helped create the moving, extra beats and examples that supplied a backdrop for the rapper’s charismatic rhymes, that have been generally party-oriented; the record finished up heading silver. That same calendar year, he documented the theme melody for Dennis Hopper’s Shades, a film about inner-city lifestyle in LA. The melody — also known as “Shades” — was more powerful, both lyrically and musically, with an increase of incisive lyrics, than anything he previously previously released. Ice-T produced his very own record label, Rhyme Syndicate (that was distributed through Sire/Warner) in 1988, and released Power. Power was a far more assured and amazing record, gaining him solid testimonials and his second silver record. Released in 1989, The Iceberg/Independence of Speech…Simply MONITOR WHAT You Tell you established him simply because a genuine hip-hop superstar simply by matching excellent abrasive music with fierce, smart narratives, and politics commentaries, especially approximately hip-hop censorship. 2 yrs later, Ice-T started an acting profession, starring within the up to date blaxploitation film New Jack port Town; he also documented “New Jack port Hustler” for the film. “New Jack port Hustler” became among the centerpieces of 1991’s O.G.: Primary Gangster, which became his most effective album up to now. O.G. also highlighted a metal monitor called “Body Count number” documented with Ice-T’s music group of the same name. Ice-T had taken the music group from tour that summer months, as he performed within the 1st Lollapalooza tour. The tour set-up improved his charm with both substitute music enthusiasts and middle-class teens. The following yr, the rapper made a decision to released a whole album using the music group, also known as Body Count number. Body Count became a significant turning stage in Ice-T’s profession. Based on the monitor “Cop Killer” — where he sang through the point-of-view of the law enforcement murderer — the record ignited a nationwide controversy; it had been protested from the NRA and law enforcement activist groups. Period Warner Information initially backed Ice-T, however they refused release a his fresh rap album, House Invasion, based on the record cover. Ice-T as well as the label parted methods by the finish of the entire year. House Invasion premiered on Priority Information within the springtime of 1993 to lukewarm evaluations and sales. Someplace on the way, Ice-T got begun to reduce the majority of his unique hip-hop audience; right now he appealed mainly to suburban white teenagers. In 1994, he had written a publication and released the next Body Count record, Born Deceased, which didn’t stir in the same controversy because the initial record — certainly, it didn’t gain much interest of any kind. Nevertheless, Body Count number was effective in night clubs and Ice-T continuing to tour using the music group. In the summertime of 1996, Ice-T released his initial rap record since 1993, Come back of the true. The record was greeted by blended testimonials and it didn’t surpass commercial goals. 7th Deadly Sin implemented in 1999. Ice-T after that returned to performing, taking a function on NBC’s Laws & Purchase : Particular Victims Device playing, ironically, a officer.

#Fact
1 His album "Rhyme Pays" was the first hip-hop album to carry an 'explicit lyrics' sticker.
2 Phil Collins has often spoken of his astonishment and flattery at finding out that Ice-T owned his albums.
3 He has played the same character (Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola) in four different series: Law & Order (1990), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999), 30 Rock (2006) and Chicago P.D. (2014).
4 Although not credited, appeared in the starting credits to D12's (Eminem's Hip-Hop group) Music Video, Fight Music.
5 Almost didn't accept the role of Scottie in the film New Jack City (1991) because he feared that if the film was a flop it would negatively affect his already hot hip-hop career. It turned out to be his breakthrough part and started him on his acting career.
6 Although he had a large feud with the LAPD as a result from his song "Cop Killer," he, ironically, plays a cop in the popular series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999).
7 Is good friends with "Six Feet Under" vocalist Chris Barnes.
8 His wife, Coco Austin, a.k.a. Coco, is a swimsuit model.
9 His longtime partner was Darlene Ortiz. They have one son together, Tracy Marrow Jr.
10 He is the first hip-hop MC to perform the notorious C-Walk dance in front of cameras in the early 1980s.
11 His longtime girlfriend was a Criplet--a female Crip gang member in Los Angeles, California.
12 Attended Crenshaw High School in south-central Los Angeles.
13 His feud with former LAPD chief Daryl Gates was widely reported by the American press.
14 He holds the distinction of being the only guest vocalist ever to appear on a Black Sabbath album, doing a guest rhyme on the song "Illusion of Power" on Sabbath's 1995 album, "Forbidden."
15 His daughter's name is Letesha and his son's name is Tracy Marrow Jr. and is called Little Ice.
16 Was injured in a car accident in 1986, when his Porsche 914 was broadsided by another vehicle. The car accident later served as a turning point where Ice focused his skills on rapping and producing albums.
17 Served in the U.S. Army Rangers (1979-1981).
18 Chose his pseudonym in honor of author Iceberg Slim (pen name of Robert Maupin Beck, 1918-1992; aka, Robert Beck), an ex-pimp turned author whose heavy-hitting novels detailed the hard life of the criminal underworld.
19 His song "Cop Killer", which was recorded with his heavy metal group, Body Count, was the subject of a national debate on the glorification of violence in the media. After the song was removed from Body Count's self-titled debut album, and after further controversy over the artwork for the then-forthcoming "Home Invasion" album, he was dropped by Sire/Warner Bros. Records, which had released the album. The split was amicable, even though Sire had assigned the catalog number 45119 to the album. Later pressings of the self-titled Body Count album were replaced by the Ice-T solo track, "Freedom of Speech (Just Watch What You Say)". "Home Invasion" was released, eventually, by Ice's now-defunct label, Rhyme $yndicate Records, through Priority/EMI, with the intended artwork intact.
20 Hip-hop artist, well-known as the father of gangsta music, which spawned the careers of artists like NWA, Snoop Dogg and Geto Boys.
21 He said a few lines on Chunky A's (Arsenio Hall) song "Dope, The Big Lie," from the album "Large and in Charge."

#Quote
1 Passion makes the world go round. Love just makes it a safer place.
2 To me, doing another record is like hustling backwards, because I've done it so many times. I've had gold and platinum records. The accolade isn't going to ring true.
3 When you start a business, go for the lowest hanging fruit.
4 I don't want so sing about girls and parties. I want to sing about movements. I want to sing about Wall Street. I want to sing about the shit that's happening in the war.
5 I want people who come to see my movies to sit down and be like, 'Come on Ice, do what you do. Take us some-fucking-where-else and don't hold the shit back'.
6 [on his documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap (2012)] As I watched the movie I saw the medicine sinking in..noticed that people were starting to listen to the words. The words started to just just kind of come off the screen in a way I don't think that people ever listen to rap.
7 On his contribution to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999): "I bring a lot of shit to the show. I'm the only person on the show probably anybody under 20 knows who they are. I bring black people and ethnic people. I bring an edge to the show, because at any moment I might smack the shit out of somebody. When I got on the show, it was in the 40s. Now it's top 10. So I brought something."
8 I can tell you how to become a millionaire in as much time as it takes a woman to have a baby. One catch: the nine-month plan ends in a funeral.
9 [on his Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) co-star, Richard Belzer] "Belzer's the best. He's Jewish and I'm Black, so the Klan's after both of us. Belzer is a G, an old-school cat who knows the game. He's very controversial in his comedy, and me in my music. So I think we just naturally clicked".
10 (Commenting on the 1992 Los Angeles riots): "Los Angeles is a microcosm of the United States. If L.A. falls, the country falls."
11 (On the controversy created by "Cop Killer): "When the President (of the United States) mentions your name in anger, you KNOW the s--t has hit the fan!"
