Too hot and strong for some tastes, this rapper-rocker and actor has been steeped in controversy while thriving in his entertainment career. While condemned in some circles as a "gangsta" rapper promoting anti-social attitudes and actions, Ice-T has lectured at colleges around the country, appeared in public service specials, and created two L.A.-based youth intervention programs. He received his greatest notoriety with the song "Cop Killer," recorded with his "thrash metal" band Body Count. Police pressure groups were so offended that Sire Records, a Warners-owned recording label, removed the cut from subsequent pressings of the album.
