EXCLUSIVE: The O.G. Ice T Drops His "Top 5 Dead or Alive" On The Eve of His Directorial Debut


Ice T is an O.G.

After nearly 30 years in the entertainment business – as one of the original gangster rappers and a convincingly good actor – he’s ready to try to his hand at film directing.

According to Ice T, he has always wanted to direct films, so when the opportunity presented itself, he knew his first project would have to involve his beloved Hip-Hop. The reviews are already in, and his directorial debut is a bonafide winner, as it strays away from rapper stereotypes like money, drugs, and misogyny and hones right in on…”the art of Rap.”

Since Ice T knows a thing or two about Hip-Hop (he corralled 52 rappers to star in his film!), on the eve of his much-anticipated Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap premiere, he drops his “Top 5 Rappers Dead or Alive” on AllHipHop.com.

And he co-signs AllHipHop.com as the official website for the culture. (Thanks, Ice!):

Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap hits theaters tomorrow (June 15).

  • Yeah! Sounds like a WINNER!

  • Ice T Has A Real Top 5!!! Many People Nowadays Have No Idea About Ice Cube, Chuck D, Krs-1, And Rakim. No Idea Whatsoever!!! I Would Have To Put One Of The Most Under Rated Emcees In The Game In There Though, Although Ice T Has A Solid Top Five. I Would Have To Put Scarface In There Most Definitely With Out A Doubt, Also Nas!!! I Know It Is Only A Top 5 BUT………
