Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Includes insert with lyrics. Ice-T was a pioneering force for the west coast, especially in the '80s, as he was one of the first gangster rap artists. At his finest hour, he connected his street language to subjects as violence, social structures and the ghetto life. The refined flow of the beats marks this essential record and masterpiece. The album peaked at #15 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and was featured in many Best Rap and Hip-Hop lists, as well as the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
