Career

Stage name

Marrow's stage name Ice-T was a moniker styled after the famous ex-pimp turned author Iceberg Slim. In an introduction to the 1996 Canongate Books reprint of Iceberg Slim's 1969 autobiography Pimp, Ice-T explained: "Although I never met the man, Iceberg Slim was to have a profound effect on my career and life... Like him, I wanted to be somebody who didn't just die there out on the streets. I wanted to be able to document some of my experiences, and that's what I've been trying to do in my music for the past decade. I took my rap name in tribute to him, and I've never regretted it.

All of Ice-T's records on Sire/Warner Bros. Records spell his name Ice-T, while the spelling without the hyphen is more often used on more recent records.

After leaving the Army, Ice-T began his extremely long career of recording raps for various studios on 12-inch singles. These tracks were later compiled on The Classic Collection and also featured on disc 2 of Legends of Hip-Hop. His first song was "The Coldest Rap" in 1982. His first official gangsta rap record was "6 in the Mornin'" one of the first of that sub-genre ever recorded. He said he was influenced by the Schoolly D record "P.S.K.," considered by many to be the first gangsta rap record (as it lionized the Philadelphia gang Park Side Killers).

He finally landed a deal with a major label Sire Records. When label founder and president Seymour Stein heard his demo, he said, “He sounds like Bob Dylan.”[7]Shortly after, he released his debut album Rhyme Pays in 1987. On that album, he is supported by DJ Evil E, DJ Aladdin and producer Afrika Islam, who helped create the rolling, spare beats and samples that provided a backdrop for the emcee's charismatic rhymes, which were mainly party-oriented; the record wound up being certified gold by the RIAA. That same year, he recorded the theme song for Dennis Hopper's Colors, a film about inner-city life in Los Angeles. The song—also called "Colors"—was stronger, both lyrically and musically, with more incisive lyrics, than anything he had previously released. Power was released in 1988, and it was a more assured and impressive record, earning him strong reviews and his second gold record. Released in 1989, The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech...

In 1989, Ice-T formed his own record label, Rhyme $yndicate Records, which was distributed through Epic/SME Records. However, in the early 1990s, most of the acts signed to that label were re-signed to various Warner Bros. labels because of Ice’s excellent relationship with that label. When Ice split amicably with Sire/Warner Bros. Records after a dispute over the artwork of the album Home Invasion, he reactivated Rhyme $yndicate and formed a deal with Priority/EMI for distribution.

Ice-T is believed to be the first emcee to have ever performed the notorious Crip Walk (or C-Walk) up on stage, in front of cameras sometime in the 1980s. This added to his already controversial fame and gave rise to the C-Walk's mainstream presentation in other videos via WC, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and other Crip-affiliated rap artists.

In 1991 he released his classic album OG: Original Gangster, which is regarded as one of Gangsta Rap's defining albums. It was also on this album in which he introduced his heavy metal band Body Count. He has released 4 other rap albums since then. His first rap album since 1999, Gangsta Rap, was released on October 31, 2006. The album's cover, which "shows [Ice T] lying on his back in bed with his ravishing wife's ample posterior in full view and one of her legs coyly draped over his private parts," was considered to be too suggestive for most retailers, many of which were reluctant to stock the album.[8] Some reviews of the album were unenthusiastic, as many had hoped for a return to the political raps of Ice-T's most successful albums.

Political views

Although usually on the political left, he was criticized for misogyny in his lyrics, and this has deterred some liberals from supporting him. The track "I Always Wanted To be a Ho" has sometimes been interpreted[citation needed] as a break with this failure to oppose sexism; it begins by encouraging women to follow their dreams. In The Ice Opinion, he claimed that he was a feminist insofar as he believed in equal pay for women and equal rights generally. He argued against the position that being a stripper or a model is demeaning to women by an analogy with a man who considers a gay man to be demeaning all men by his actions, arguing that if the latter feeling is untenable, the former is as well.
