You may all be accustomed to ‘Ice-Order’ ice cream to remember Gangsta Rap Ice, but ready to refresh your memories!
A&E is set to premiere their one-hour documentary “Origin of Hip Hop” on May 30th, and we’ve got an exclusive sneak preview clip from the show. In the clip, Ice describes the days of his first “wild” trip when local gang members dragged him to every town he met. It didn’t go so well when he went to a stop in Detroit, where he got a call from his street manager to come to the 15th floor of the hotel and look everywhere for guns!
