Today is the born day of Ice-T. He is 55.
Born Tracey Marrow, the L.A. by-way-of New Jersey rapper rose to fame as a rapper in the 1980s. His debut album, Rhyme Pays, was the first one to carry a sticker labeling it explicit. However, Ice-T has not only made a name for himself by being a hip-hop mainstay, with eight albums spanning his career, but he has also won a Grammy award, conquered film and television and has even been featured in video games.
Now, Ice makes a name for himself playing Detective Odafin “Fin” Tutuola on NBC’s Law and Order: SVU and as one-half of an hip-hop power couple along with Coco. The duo have a reality show on E!, Ice Loves Coco.
