Ice-T: 'Bring Me The Head of Charlton Heston'

Angus Batey, New Musical Express, 13 March 1993

America's most wanted... public enemy one... ICE-T's reputation is just about as real as he wants it to get right now. Ever since the 'Cop Killer' fiasco finally reached meltdown when a tired old Hollywood ham took exception to the lyrics at a Time Warner shareholders' meeting, T's relationship with corporate America has been rocky to say the least. Now, freed from the liberal shackles of his former record company, Ice is about to unleash his latest broadside at the sleeping conscience of his nation, with or without the blessing of the boys in blue... ANGUS BATEY met the Original Gangster in New York.
