Tracy Lauren Marrow (born February 16, better known by stage name Ice-T, and nickname O.G. (Original Gangsta) is an American emcee, rock musician, author, former United States Army soldier, and actor. He was instrumental in creating gangsta rap. Much of his music is politically oriented, although this has declined with time. In 1991 he released his album OG: Original Gangster, which is regarded as one of the albums that defined gangsta rap. On OG, he introduced his band Body Count in a track of the same name. Ice-T toured with Body Count on the first annual Lollapalooza concert tour in 1991, gaining him appeal among middle-class teenagers and fans of alternative music genres. The self-titled debut album by Body Count followed.
