By being born in New Jersey, speaker Ice-T mastered the art of survival early in an ever-changing environment as he lost his parents at a very young age. Thereafter, he got involved in the gangs of Los Angeles, the city where he first released a series of influential recordings before forming the highly acclaimed thrash metal band Body Count.

His controversial personality also secured his position in the film and television industry as he starred in movies such as New Jack City, Ricochet and Johnny Mnemonic. Furthermore, he appeared in numerous independent movies and documentaries. His influence is also apparent in interactive media as he worked as a voice actor for video games like Grand Theft Auto and Gears of War.

Ice-T’s experience in areas such as the music and the film industry helped him earn his reputation as an influential speaker for the youth of the United States: he is available to address meaningful speeches about the cultural relevance of rap music, the racial background of America or the way of overcoming tough challenges in life.

Currently, Ice-T stars in the NBC series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Furthermore, he released a new album by Body Count, earning the band a 2018 Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance.
