Early Life and Education
Tracy Lauren Marrow, also known as Ice-T, was born in 1958 on February 16. He is the son of an African-American father, Solomon Marrow.
His mother was called Alice Marrow, a Creole native.
Unfortunately, he lost both his parents when he was a boy. Ice-T was raised by his aunt and grew up among his cousins in Los Angeles.
He studied at Palms Junior High before graduating from Crenshaw High School. Students at this school formed rival gangs among themselves.
Marrow was not part of any gang, but he offered his support to friends who were.
He joined a band called ‘The Precious Few’ at his school. He then started performing together with his bandmates during school shows.
Career and Net Worth
To top up the amount he received as benefits from Social Security for his father’s death, Marrow turned into a cannabis seller.
He also stole stereos from cars, but that was not enough to support his girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time.
He later joined the US Army in 1977 and served for two years. To keep away from violence and stealing, Marrow started pursuing his rapping and DJ career.
He performed in open-mike competitions.
Ice-T recorded his first single in 1983. The track was called ‘Cold Wind Madness.’ He later released another track in the same year, ‘Body Rock.’
It was well-received in clubs, and its popularity rose.
He released his first studio album, ‘Rhyme Pays,’ in 1987. He also released singles and collaborated with both hip-hop and rock artists.
Later on, Marrow featured in films such as ‘Breakin’ in 1984, ‘Surviving the Game,’ and ‘New Jack City,’ where he partnered with Chris Rock.
Ice-T makes $250,000 each episode of “Law & Order: SVU” as of this writing. Before syndication payments, that comes out to almost $6 million every season.
His other ventures include podcasts, reality TV shows, and voice acting. He is also a producer. These ventures have put his net worth at the mark of $60 million.
