    I just wanted to say that Ice-T has more talent in his butthole than Jay-Z has in his whole body. [11]

    Not a big fan of rap/hiphop, but those first four albums are some of the greatest music I've ever heard.

    Ice-T, Chuck D, Ice Cube, KRS-One, Rakim... some of the best rappers that paved the way for the explosion of hip hop in the mainstream in the early 1990's.

    Ice-T rules. Jay-Z isn't bad, either. But Kendrick Lamar is the 1 to listen 2 @the moment...
