A man of many talents, Ice-T is a rapper, actor and rocker. He signed to Sire records in the late 1980s and released two successful solo albums before going on to front the controversial heavy metal outfit Body Count. Their track 'Cop Killer', about a man who shoots police officers in retaliation for the beating of Rodney King, caused an outcry in the US and promoted the band's record label to censor subsequent pressings of the album. Ice T has since returned to the gangster rap genre he pioneered, with his characteristically dark lyrics from LA's underground world of prostitutes, pimps and pigs.
