Product Description


'Metcalf and Turner have assembled an impressive collection of essays regarding one of hip-hop's most controversial and important figures. Covering a vast range of cultural fields, from reality television to film, crime drama acting to politics, video games to entrepreneurship, ageing and masculinity, the book embraces the "Renaissance Man" spirit that makes Ice-T, and hip-hop culture, so complex and valuable.'Justin Williams, University of Bristol, UK'These wide-ranging and analytically sharp essays speak to the maturity of hip-hop studies as a field and bring home the reach of contemporary hip-hop culture through the career of one iconic individual. Ice-T's success captures the immense creative and commercial versatility of hip-hop culture, and crystallizes trends in the conglomerated cultural industries - the power of rap celebrities to build and sustain their careers in a corporate-dominated media environment.'Eithne Quinn, University of Manchester, UK
