Rapper/actor Ice-T is still fuming over his arrest for allegedly driving on a suspended license in July and he's determined to win compensation by suing the officials responsible for what he insists was a false accusation. A car driven by the "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star was pulled over by cops in New York after they spotted he and his wife Coco were not wearing seat belts.

The rapper, real name Tracy Marrow, has persistently slammed the allegations, and took to his Twitter.com blog to write: "That (suspended license) is some bulls**t they made up... Lie.

The album suddenly started climbing the charts, so Willis and his producer Jacques Morali had to quickly hold auditions to assemble the group of now famous characters."
