I just thought I'd give one the better rappers out there a mention. Though, his rap career is pretty much done, he put out some good albums in the early nineties and one or two in the late eighties. Rap's not really my thing most of the time, but Ice-T is pretty good. The guy can tell a story. He put most of, if not all of, today's popular rappers to shame.
It's not music related, but Ice-T is one of the stars of Law & Order: SVU, which is a pretty good TV show, and I must admit he's an alright actor.
