Ice-T Kept on Stealing After Scoring Hit Album


Ice-T


The rapper reveals in his memoir that it took him getting caught by a group of fans while trying to steal a convertible roof to realize that he was too famous to continue with his criminal way.

Rapper/actor Ice-T has opened up about his criminal past, revealing he continued to steal even after finding fame. The hip-hop star was a street thief in Los Angeles as a teen and admits it was difficult to turn his back on crime even after scoring his first hit album "Rhyme Pays" in 1987.

But Ice-T realized the error of his ways after a terrifying incident when he tried to steal a convertible roof from a parked Porsche - to replace his own sports car's damaged top - and got caught by a group of fans. In his new book "Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption-from South Central to Hollywood", the star writes, "I was just ratcheting into the canvas tarp when I heard screams coming from the window of an apartment above. I thought I'd been busted."

"It sank in when I realized a group of 10 or so kids were shouting things like, 'Ice-T! Ice-T! Yo, sign this Ice!' Instead of running, I hung around to sign for them. But that was the point it sank in that I couldn't do this any more. I was too famous to keep stealing."
