Ice-T is getting a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.
On Tuesday, it was announced that the rapper and actor, 64, will be awarded the star on February 17, with legendary rapper Chuck D serving as a guest speaker, along with walk-of-famers Mariska Hargitay and Dick Wolf, who Ice-T works with on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
While Ice-T is being awarded the star in the category of Recording, he’s a multi-hyphenate. Aside from his role on Law and Order: SVU, his film and television credits include New Jack City, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Saturday Night Live, and the reality series Ice Loves Coco.
As an author, the Grammy Award-winner has written five books, including his 2022 memoir Split Decision. He’s also lent his voice to various video games like Grand Theft Auto and Gears of War 3.
It all began, though, with gangster rap. Ice-T started his career as a rapper in the 1980s and eventually formed the label Rhyme Syndicate Records in 1989, where he released a string of groundbreaking West Coast rap tracks.
The star will be dedicated at 11:30 a.m. PT and will be streamed on walkoffame.com.
