Rapper Ice-T’s Grandson Shoots And Kills Roommate Brian Anderson, June 27, 2014

Remember that rapper who rose to fame singing about killing cops with his pseudo-metal band Body Count? Well, he may want to include a song about gun safety on his next album. Ice-T is apparently a grandfather and it turns out his grandson doesn’t know the basics of firearm handling. Last week, Ice-T III (not his real name) was messing around with a handgun and put a bullet in his friend. Hollwoodlife reports: Elyjah Marrow, 19, was playing around with a handgun in his Marietta, Ga. apartment on June 24 when he accidentally fired the weapon, killing his roommate Daryus Johnson, also 19, according to police.

Came across this gem. I am more struck by the idea that Ice-T is old enough to have a 19 year old grandson.

From Wiki: In 1976, Marrow's girlfriend Adrienne gave birth to their daughter, LeTesha, and they attended high school while raising the child. LeTesha later gave her parents two grandchildren.

Said grandchild would have been born 1995 when LeTesha was 19.

Also just learned of Tracy Marrow's extensive criminal background.

Ice T has reaped what he sowed. I rest my case. Charlton Heston, RIP, you were vindicated all along.

"Tracy Lauren Marrow (born February 16, 1958), better known by his stage name Ice-T, is an American rapper, singer and actor." Perhaps best known now for his portrayal of NYPD Detective Odafin Tutuola on the NBC police drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

I wonder if he had to jump through all the hoops legal gun-owning citizens have to jump theough, to possess that gun?

I am sure many on the left will celebrate this shooting since Ice-T was pro gun and anti gun control...

Ice-T is actually one of the good guys on the second amendment, but he does fall into the gangsta chic. About six months ago he tweeted some pictures of him holding his guns “gangsta” style. He was criticised for it on twitchy that he was setting a bad example, and he replied with some profanities. It would have been better if he had listened.

Gangsta’s are pro-2A?? Not really, they just need their guns to shoot the other rappers.

First and last time I watched the Conan O'Brian show ice t was on. Conan was kissing his a$$ telling him he was so cool being a gangster, being a pimp, a drug dealer and a robber. Ice T said he saved Charlton Heston's life. They were stopped at a red light behind Charlton and his "boyz" wanted to get out and kick his Cracker a$$ but he stopped them.

Right Mr T, I think you and your "boyz" would have been looking down the business end of a 1911 and your future career aspirations would have ended then and there.

THANK YOU!!
He was the narrator for Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire. An excellent pro 2A documentary.

Pay no attention to those fools behind the curtain. That is why I do not own a TV, cannot stand their crap. They are fools, pretending to be cool.

ZTHANK YOU!! He was the narrator for Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire. An excellent pro 2A documentary.

My understanding was that he had disavowed and apologized for a lot of his earlier work. He is one of the good guys trying to get urban youth to run the straight and narrow. IIRC It had something to do with an incident involving his son.

Ice cube is with NWA & is known for that little diddy.

Ice T sang a song tiled Colors, with a band called body count, the title track for the movie, Colors. The cops, sean Penn and Robert duval were the antangionists.

Ice T is paper thug. Ice cube, probably fringe gangster. Probably not. Just two dudes fronting a image.

Maybe I’m wrong. I’m ok with that:). I know NWA had a rap titled f the police. I heard it often in the 90’s in college. I know ice t sang rapped some stuff that suggests total shock value to a budding thug culture at the time. Ice t and body count (cop killer, I think was the jingle) was ‘88-’89. NWA came around ‘92.

Both had anti cop stuff.

My bad if mispoken.

I was thinking the same thing, but what did anyone expect him to say?

It's not the messin around part I don't believe, it's the accidentally fired part that I don't believe. It's right up there with the gun just went off by itself. He could have intentionally shot him, Stupidly shot him, unintentionally shot him, but accidentally? I don't think so.
