Ice T not only invented gangster rap, he has lived it. Born in New Jersey, he learned the art of survival pretty fast. An only child, whose parents died when he was very young, Ice T became involved in L.A gangs before spending four years in the Army.
Through his music, his roles in TV and film, his books (“The Ice Opinion,” “Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life,” and “Redemption – from South Central to Hollywood”), and his lecture tours of America’s prisons, high schools, libraries, and colleges (including Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford), Ice T has become an influential spokesman for America’s youth, regardless of color.
He has starred in NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” as Detective Odafin Tutuola for 20 years. In 2017, he produced and starred in “Who Shot Biggie & Tupac” for Fox, released a new “BodyCount” album, which garnered a 2018 Grammy nomination, and produced and hosted “In Ice Cold Murder” for Oxygen for which a second season started airing in February 2019. Ice T is the original embodiment of L.A. Hip-Hop and a cultural icon.
