Ice-T To Be Awarded A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Ice-T To Be Awarded A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

A star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame will be dedicated to Ice-T.

The 64-year-old rapper/actor will receive his star during a ceremony at the popular tourist destination on February 17, according to a statement made on Tuesday (January 31) by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Chuck D, a fellow pioneer of Hip Hop, Mariska Hargitay, the co-star of Law & Order: Special Victims Units, and Law & Order creator Dick Wolf will also speak at the event alongside Ice-T.

Despite having a long-running part in the police drama, Ice-T was chosen for the Walk of Fame and will receive a star in the category of Recording for his groundbreaking music career.

“Ice-T is a cultural icon and a success both in the music and television industries. His fans will be very excited to see their favorite performer placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement.

“Ice’s star will be situated near the stars of music greats such as Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Luciano Pavarotti, Mama Cass Elliott, John Denver and Herbie Hancock, to name a few,” she added.

Ice-T was pleasantly surprised by the news and thought about how ironic it was that he was being memorialized in the same area where he used to routinely get into legal trouble.

“When I think about how many times I got arrested in Hollywood…. This is a trip,” he wrote on Twitter.

The star for Ice-T will be the 2,747th to be added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He will join Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, LL COOL J, Diddy, Ice Cube, Pharrell, Missy Elliott, and Queen Latifah as the only other 11 Hip Hop acts to get a star.
