Ice-T was born Tracy Morrow in Newark, New Jersey. While he was a teenager his parents were both killed in an auto accident, and he moved to South Central Los Angeles.

He is the father of gangsta rap, noted for the controversial nature of his lyrics, and has acted in a number of low-budget hip-hop and blaxploitation films, although he has also funded several youth-intervention programs in the Los Angeles ghetto: Hands Across Watts and South Central Love.
