  • Rapper Ice-T’s Grandson Shoots And Kills Roommate

    06/29/2014 4:12:41 PM PDT · by Steven Scharf · 42 replies ^ | June 27, 2014 | Brian Anderson 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...
  • Ice-T: Gun Rights Are Civil Rights

    Rapper Ice-T has narrated a documentary that frames the gun control argument in language the left has long avoided--gun rights are civil rights. In other words, they are rights inherent to American citizens. Or as the website puts it: "Civil rights are personal rights guaranteed and protected by the U.S. Constitution." Therefore, just as rights to speak freely, to vote, and to practice one's religion are civil rights, so too are the rights embodied in the 2nd Amendment. This is the central point of the documentary, Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire. The documentary accomplishes this by showing that the...
  • Ice-T Opposes Gun Control, Calls Firearms ‘Defense Against Tyranny’ [VIDEO]

    Rapper Ice-T threw a bit of cold water on anti-gun activists during an interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy on Britain's Channel 4, defending the Second Amendment right to bear arms. (Check out the video below). "It's legal in the United States. It's part of our Constitution. You know, the right to bear arms is because that's the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It's to protect yourself from the police," he said Friday, hours after the Aurora, Colo., massacre. The line of questioning came on the heels of the slaughter when suspected gunman James Holmes opened fire on...
  • Rapper Ice-T Defends Gun Rights After ‘Dark Knight’ Shooting: ‘

    "“I’d give up my gun when everybody else does,” Ice-T said. ”The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police...” - Ice-T ------------------------------------------------- It is good to see an actor/rapper, black American yet - who actually displays the courage to express God given, basic sense without compunction or fear of retaliation by the 96% still shackled to the DNC plantation. They will not receive this well. - Publius321

    THE ISSUE: Mayor Bloomberg's gun-control initiative and affiliation with gun-toting rappers. "Sheriff Mike Hails 109 in Mayor Posse" (Oct. 6) reports that Mayor Bloomberg led a group of like-minded mayors to Washington, D.C., to demand that Capitol Hill slash the Second Amendment and save us all from violent street thugs. But one day prior, on Oct. 5, Bloomberg was pictured in The Post with the well-known "crime-fighter," Ice-T, who rose to fame in the '90s with his ode to law and order entitled "Cop Killer." If Bloomberg truly wants to reduce violent crime, he should be pushing his friends in...

The rapper - real name Tracey morrow - told The Sun: "The man is a legend, we are going to show a whole new side of him." "He's gonna come out as Hassle the Hoff." "The Hoff will surprise people with his rap skills and humour." Hasselhoff Has Rapping...
  • Ice-T 'cop killer' rapper, spokesman for The Learning Channel?

    I was watching TV last night, and as I surfed past the 'Learning Channel' I saw their new spokesman for an upcoming show was none other than the rapper, Ice-T. Ice-T was the rapper whose song, "cop killer" ignited a firestorm of controversy a few years ago. What is this thug doing as the spokesman for a formerly decent channel like TLC? What do you freepers think?
