In my opinion, Ice-T’s sophomore album is his greatest to date. It’s has Ice’s signature storytelling and cautionary tales (“Drama,” High Rollers”). “I’m Your Pusher” makes great use of Curtis Mayfield’s “Pusherman” with a double entendre. “Soul on Ice” pays homage to Iceberg Slim and “Radio Suckers” provides his opinion on radio programming and censorship. Before “ganagsta rap” became filled with cliches of violence, drugs, and sex- raps about hard living were strongly rooted in reality. And the people that lived it knew it was nothing to glorify, and Ice-T and Power are the perfect examples of that much more mature approach to rhyming through a microphone.
