Born Tracy Morrow in Newark, New Jersey in 1959, rapper / musician / actor / activist Ice-T was raised in the gang-infested, pimp-heavy streets of South Central, Los Angeles. He became immersed in both cultures, and began rapping about his daily activities while still a teenager in high school. In fact, his current nickname was borrowed from the infamous pimp-turned-writer, Iceberg Slim. Friends urged him to take his talents into a recording studio, where he recorded several rap singles.

His first on-screen appearance came in 1984 when the producers of Breakin’ asked him to rap in the film. In 1987 Ice-T finally signed with Sire Records and dropped his major-label debut, Rhyme Pays, which quickly went gold. His 1988 follow-up, Power, went gold amidst critical acclaim. Ice-T was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1990 for his hit single "New Jack Hustler."

In 1989, Ice-T wrote the book, The Iceberg / Freedom of Speech...Just Watch What You Say, a literary protest against music censorship. In 1992, Ice-T fronted a heavy metal group called Body Count. Its self-titled debut album became mired in controversy due to its final track, "Cop Killer," written from the perspective of an angry African-American man who shoots Los Angeles police officers in retaliation for their beating of Rodney King. Conservatives and police groups protested Sire's parent company, Time-Warner, prompting the label to censor new pressings of the album. The following year, Ice-T toured several universities, including Harvard, Stanford and NYU, lecturing on the state of first amendment rights and civil liberties in this country. As his politics were grabbing headlines, Ice-T’s film and television career were taking off. The controversial personality secured roles in New Jack City, Ricochet, Trespass and Johnny Mnemonic, all while building a flourishing television career.

Ice-T currently stars in NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” his fourth project with executive producer Dick Wolf after the 1997-98 series Players, NBC’s “Exiled: A Law & Order Movie,” and several memorable guest starring appearances on Wolf’s gritty cop series “New York Undercover.”

In another current television project, “Beyond Tough,” Ice-T serves as both co-executive producer and host of the series that looks at the men and women behind America’s wildest jobs. From hazmat technicians, to oil-rig firefighters to rodeo clowns, Ice-T takes the viewer into the trenches with America’s everyday heroes.

Ice-T’s Pimpin’ 101 stars the multimedia personality as the host of a documentary-style look at the science of pimping. Raw, direct and x-rated, Ice-T boldly schools the viewer through five vignettes illustrating the five different areas of the pimp game.
