Tracy Marrow, a.k.a. Ice-T, began his rap career in the late '80s, stunning mainstream audiences with graphic lyrics that depicted LA gang culture. In 1992, as part of his heavy metal band Body Count, he released the self-titled album, which included the controversial track "Cop Killer." Police groups and politicians boycotted the song, claiming the lyrics glamorized the act of murdering a police officer. While Ice-T had a successful career as a rapper, he also made a transition into acting, which included playing an undercover police officer in the film New Jack City (1992) and as a detective on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
