Early Life and Career Information

Tracy Lauren Marrow was born on February 16, 1958, in Newark, New Jersey, to Solomon Marrow and Alice Marrow. While in high school, Lauren Marrow took an interest in the novels of Iceberg Slim. He would memorize and recite the excerpts to his friends, earning him the name Ice-T.

In October 1977, Marrow enlisted in the US Army. After receiving his basic training, he was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division. However, he was discharged from the army in December 1979, after serving only two years.

During his short-lived spell in the army, Lauren Marrow developed an interest in hip-hop music. When he was eventually discharged from the army, he adopted the name Ice-T and began disk jockeying at local parties and concerts. Around the same time, Marrow engaged in a series of robberies which culminated in the arrest and incarceration of most of his closest associates. He would later turn over a new leaf after surviving a grisly car crash.

Tracy Lauren released his first single titled ‘Cold Wind Madness’ in 1983.However, he struggled to get the song played by mainstream radio stations due to its explicit lyrics. Nonetheless, ‘Cold Wind Madness’ was a major underground success.

In 1984, Lauren released the politically-themed single ‘Killers.’ The song was also generally well received and Ice-T was now considered one of the most promising underground rappers.

Ice-T continued releasing music independently until he landed a record deal with Sire Records in 1987. The same year, he released his debut album Rhyme Pays. The following year, he followed up with his second album, Power, and then the third album in 1989 titled The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech…Just Watch What You Say.

All Lauren’s first three albums were certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America® (RIAA). However, it was his fourth album, O.G. Original Gangster (1991), which became his most iconic projects to date. Many pundits believe that O.G. Original Gangster is the founding album of gangsta rap. Ice-T would later follow up with four more independent albums, namely Home Invasion (1993), Ice-T VI: Return of the Real (1996), The Seventh Deadly Sin (1999), and Gangsta Rap (2006).

While releasing his fourth album, Ice-T also introduced the metal band Body Count. Body Count released its self-titled debut album in 1992 before following up with their second album titled Born Dead in 1994. The band released five more studio albums, including Violent Demise: The Last Days (1997), Murder 4 Hire (2006), Manslaughter (2014), Bloodlust ( 2021), and Carnivore ( 2021).

Besides his independent albums and albums released with Body Count, Ice-T has also released a couple of collaborative albums over the years, including:

• Breaking and Entering (with The Radio Crew in 1983)
• Rhyme Syndicate Comin’ Through (with Rhyme $yndicate in 1988)
• Pimp to Eat (with Analog Brothers in 2000)
• Repossession (with SMG in 2004)
• Urban Legends (with Black Ice in 2008)
• The Foundation Album (Legends Recording Group) (with various artists in 2021)
