Ice-T - Rhyme Pays (1987)

Remember ICE-T in "Breakin..."? He was the only cool person on that. Obviously it goes without saying that JC gets props (Van-Damme), too.

Unfortunately Reckless never made it to his debut album (or The Coldest Rap, for that matter) but instead we got the brilliant, punctuating synths of 6 N The Morning which is the 2nd track and my personal favourite. This track was inspired by Schoolly D's PSK (which can be found further down this blog) as Ice-T has often been quoted.
West Coast lays it's mark right here. By an OG named Tracy Lauren.

The password to unpack this album once you've downloaded it is Thanks to my man Def D for the blood and sweat.

Thanks for the kind comments, D. It was actually your blog and Essential Elements (check the Blog Roll for url's, people) that spurred me into starting my own.

Hi Benzini,

Thanks for posting Ice-T. Been going through a lot of early to late 80s West Coast after picking up the Arabian Prince CD from Stones Throw. When I look back at Ice-T's career, it really is impressive (I'm an SVU fan, can you tell?) and legendary.

Keep bringing the greatness.
Peace, Jerome
