Ice-T continues to use his voice to express his views on various topics. The Hip Hop ambassador is narrating a documentary titled Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, a film that is striving to take a step back from public discourse on limiting magazine capacity and defining “assault rifles,” and offer a unique perspective of the Second Amendment’s significance. Rock icon Ted Nugent also makes an appearance. The 79-minute film comes out on June 20.
The documentary comes at a time where the debate on gun control is currently a popular discussion due to recent unfortunate tragedies like the Newtown, Connecticut shooting.
Ice-T has an impressive list of film credits. He is well-known for playing the role of Detective Odafin Tutuola on the TV series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” some frown upon his part because of his Gangsta Rap persona.
The rapper/actor has also contributed to a slew of motion pictures like Urban Menace, Leprechaun In The Hood, and Once Upon A Time In Brooklyn, among many others.
In the last two years, Ice-T and his manager Jorge Hinojosa released two documentary films, “Iceberg Slim: Portrait Of A Pimp” and From Nothing To Something: The Art Of Rap. The latter was Ice-T’s directorial debut and expounded on the craft of creating Hip Hop. From Nothing To Something: The Art Of Rap features heavy-hitters like Dr. Dre, Eminem, Rakim, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Bun B, Nas, Ice Cube, Common, Q-Tip, Big Daddy Kane, Yasiin Bey f/k/a Mos Def and more breaking down their knowledge of the culture. It made the Sundance Festival and was critically acclaimed.
