Jump To Ice T's Stats
When the musical genre of rap was born, Ice T was there. In the mid 80s, as disciple of Iceberg Slim, Ice-T carved his way into recording history. Tracy Marrow collected all his life lessons as he put its rough edge to rapping in the Los Angeles area. His continued dedication to music and his adopted talent to acting has grown the New Jersey native's net worth to $49,581,200.
Marrow labeled himself as Ice T in reverence to the writings of Iceberg Slim, a 70 and 80s street philosopher/pimp. When Ice T began to put his lyrics and music together, the combination represented the worst possible affront to the authoritarian structure. With a band name like Body Count and a hit rap song named Cop Killer, Ice T was considered the cutting edge of a genre that many thought would never catch on. Some even attempted to block his songs and his album distributions by pressuring labels and threatening arrest. In 1991, Marrow claimed a Grammy for his rendition of Back on the Block.
Nowadays, the “Cop Killer” author portrays a cop on the long-running television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. His street wise character blends with cynicism and authenticity that has drawn rave review for the decade that he has played the part. Ice T also has lent his voice to a number of video games. His record in film and television continues to be extensive. Beside the Law & Order gig, he has appeared in over 40 film projects and in over 15 television shows.
It can't be said that Ice-T will not change with the wind. Beside collaborating with a group of rock musicians right now for a future release, Ice-T and his voluptuous wife Coco has signed to appear in a reality television show. If you've never seen Coco, this would be a good time to get to know her.
