Tracy Marrow (born February 16, 1958), better known by his stage name Ice-T, is a Grammy Award and NAACP Image Award-winning American rapper, actor and author. He is credited with helping in pioneering gangsta rap in the late 1980s. As an actor, he is best known for his portrayal of NYPD Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola on the NBC police drama ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit''. Although one of West Coast hip hop's leading figures, Marrow was actually born in urban Newark, New Jersey, and christened Tracy by his father. When he was a child, he moved from his native Newark to the upscale community of Summit, New Jersey. His mother died of a heart attack when he was in third grade and his father died of a heart attack four years later.

Upon returning to his old neigborhood, Ice found that the gang violence between Crips and Bloods had escalated, and many of his old high school friends were now either professional thieves or in jail. After several months of being kept on the outside, Ice was brought into the group, and he quickly found that his military career had inadvertently given him the tools to plan efficient, effective and non-violent crimes. His 'crew' subsequently went on a crime spree (mostly jewelery store robberies) that ran up and down the west coast, and in some cases even the Midwest. Ice also experimented with being a pimp, and dabbled in pushing cocaine before deciding he didn't have the temperment to be a drug dealer.

* CopKiller: Infamously, his song by this title created a firestorm of controversy for being written [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin from the viewpoint of a cop-killer]]. He claimed it was a ProtestSong against PoliceBrutality, but ultimately it was withdrawn from circulation after the criticism got too intense.
