Ice-T: The Iceberg: Freedom of Speech . . . Just Watch What You Say [Sire, 1989]
Realer than Luke Skyywalker, glibber than Frank Zappa, able to scare small radio programmers with a single sound, this gangster's new artistic vocation is talking shit to the PMRC. Gratuitous f-words, obscene street rhymes, hilarious metal s&m, Jello Biafra recitations, the joke about boring into a motherfucker's skull with a cordless drill--all are designed to enrage censors while talking to the people live and direct. And as always, the street tales bite harder than fact. Fierce. Funny.
