Ice-T, who received a Grammy Award in 1991, launched his rap music career in the 1984 film Breakin’. He went on to become the genre’s original gangster, forming Rhyme Syndicate Records in 1989 and releasing a string of groundbreaking West Coast rap records. Ice-T subsequently formed the thrash metal band Body Count.
The film and television actor secured roles in New Jack City, Ricochet, Trespass and Johnny Mnemonic. He stars in NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Detective Finn. In his 1994 book, The Ice Opinion, the artist airs his views on free speech and education, among other topics. Ice-T will speak about race in America and overcoming obstacles to success.
