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!):
