Ice T

Ice T is one of the most iconic figures active in American music and television today. He began his career in the 80s and soon caught the eye of Seymour Stein of Sire Records. Ice T’s unique world view, street cred, musical range, and rebellious ethic catapulted him to the forefront of not just the rap world but the heyday of alternative rock.
Ice T’s The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech…Just Watch What You Say forever established his legitimacy with the punk/alt community and defined the civil rights bond between rap and rock communities. Ice T took on Tipper Gore and the PMRC head on…”Yo PMRC here we go. War”. The album also featured outspoken free speech advocate and Dead Kennedys front man Jello Biafra.
Ice T’s rap career has been one of the longest in the industry and he is arguably almost as well known for his metal band Bodycount. The band rocketed to national prominence in the early 90s for their no-holds-barred challenges to musical convention and authority.
It’s no surprise that such a revolutionary and genre-bending artist caught the attention of Stein, the man credited with launching the Punk & New Wave movement in the U.S.
The two will be together again May 11 to cap off conference events at ECMC 2019! Ice T will discuss with Stein the latter’s career, their shared history, and the future. This is a rare conversation between two absolute Legends of Modern Music and is NOT TO BE MISSED.
