BAD ASS 4 LIFE
If youre of a certain age, you probably have fond memories of those days when you had to sneak a copy of Ice-Ts song Cop Killer into your Walkman. Of course, so much has changed since then for the former frontman of Body Count. These days, hes married to swimsuit model Coco and ironically plays a cop on Law & Order: SVU. But how Tracy Morrow, his given name, became a star is the subject of his second autobiography Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and RedemptionFrom South Central to Hollywood. In the book, he recounts his move from New Jersey to Los Angeles at the age of 12 after the death of his parents, becoming a father at 18, his four-year stint in the Army, his time as a jewelry thief, and how all of his many roles in life prepared him for survival in the trenches of Hollywood.
