Ice-T is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


After decades in the music industry, Ice-T will finally receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The gangsta rap pioneer and television mogul will be honored with the 2,747th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, February 17.


Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a press statement. “Ice-T is a cultural icon and a success both in the music and television industries. His fans will be very excited to see their favorite performer placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”


The L.A. OG Ice-T reacted to the announcement via @variety, “When I think about how many times I got arrested in Hollywood....” He wrote. “This is a trip.” 💎

In addition to Ice-T’s Walk of Fame, he joins other rap acts including Snoop Dogg, Diddy, 50 Cent, Ice Cube and DJ Khaled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


Ice-T’s last album, Gangsta Rap, was dropped in 2006. In total, over the span of his career he has released eight albums. While rising to notoriety in the late 80s, the Newark, New Jersey-native faced an onslaught of backlash from law enforcement for his record “Cop Killer.” In the past, the rapper said the controversial song nearly ruined his career.


“Everybody in the mainstream was like, ‘They won’t fuck with you because you’re too taboo,'” he Ice-T told HipHopDx. “And I was like, ‘Right.’ And then Snoop started knocking down walls. That’s my brother. So Snoop was going through doors and I’m like, ‘Look, Snoop’s making it through these doors, let’s try.’” Since 2000 he has starred on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.“

Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Spike Lee, Michael Jackson, Morgan Freeman and more. On Jan. 6, 2006, rapper-actor Queen Latifah broke the mold by becoming the first rapper to receive recognition.
