431. Ice-T

As one of the fathers of Gangsta Rap; Ice-T helped usher in a new musical sub genre. Rapping about issues that concerned the life in the South Central ghetto, Ice-T’s raps were as deep as they were intense and regardless of his subject matter he always came across as cerebral. Musically, he was one of the first to blend Rap with Metal with his work with Body Count. Ice-T may have been one of the more controversial figures in the early commercial Rap world, but he was one if it’s best. With Grandmaster Flash and Run D.M.C. in, it is only a matter of time before a third gets in. Could Ice-T be the third?
