Gogi Grant (born Myrtle Audrey Arinsberg, September 20, 1924) was an American popular singer. Ice T did a notable lead role performance in Surviving the Game (http://imdb.com/title/tt0111323/) in distinction to his many supporting roles. "The Wayward Wind" (1956). Many other films followed. "Suddenly There's a Valley" (1955). In 1991, he embarked onto a serious acting career, playing a police detective in Mario Van Peebles' film "New Jack City". "Strange Are the Ways of Love" (1958). He debuted as a rapper in the films "Breakin'" and "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" in 1984, only two years after his first 12" ("The Coldest Rap", 1982) appeared.
This IMDb page (http://imdb.com/name/nm0001384/) details his acting engagements. Ice-T is also a successful actor. A DVD was followed by a CD called "Repossession" in 2004. More recently, Ice T teamed up with east coast rappers Smoothe Da Hustler and Trigger The Gambler, establishing a new group called SMG.
The same year also brought Ice-T's Greatest Hits: The Evidence. In the year 2000, Ice teamed up with East Coast pioneer Kool Keith from the Ultramagnetic MCs to form the Analog Brothers - a very successful (at least artistically) experiment. In both cases, the music was updated while not breaking any new ground. His 7th Deadly Sin (1999), one of the first records to be distributed via mp3 before appearing in record stores, continued in this vein.
On VI - Return of the Real, Ice returned to his gangster rap roots. Virgin Records released his next album Home Invasion (1993), an album with many political raps as well as featuring a new female rapper named Grip and Ice's DJ Evil E as a rapper. Ice was also the lead singer/shouter of his metal band Body Count and made a song called "Cop Killer" in 1992, eventually causing Warner Brothers to drop Ice. In 1991, Ice's fourth album, Original Gangster, came out; including raps about child abuse and drunk driving as well as the theme song from the movie New Jack City by Mario Van Peebles, the movie that re-launched Ice's career as an actor.
Seymour Stein called him "the Bob Dylan of rap." On "Freedom of Speech" Ice T attacked Tipper Gore for introducing the Parental Advisory sticker. As the title of this third album suggests, Ice T was from the start not only a gangster rapper - he was one of the driving forces behind the new style - but also a political rapper. Just watch what you say. Ice T went on to work with Afrika Islam, the man behind the beats on 1987s Rhyme Pays, 1988s Power and 1989s The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech..
"Six N The Morning" was inspired by Schoolly D's "PSK" and became itself the inspiration for Eazy E and NWA's "Boyz N The Hood". It was produced by Unknown DJ, who produced electro funk tracks before and went on to produce Compton's Most Wanted. "6 N The Morning" is sometimes seen as the track that triggered the whole gangster rap movement. He was born in Newark, New Jersey and started out with other West Coast rap pioneers such as Kid Frost and Egyptian Lover with Electro recordings. Later on, he changed his style and was the first rapper from the west to be accepted by the East Coast.
