Armond White Music Review of Ice-T’s album “Rhyme Pays” (QUOTE from the Armond White book “The Resistance: Ten Years of Pop Culture That Shook The World”)

 

15)  Armond White Music Review of rapper Ice-T’s album, Rhyme Pays    -1988-

 

 

Ice-T performs like an actor playing a role that is all soliloquies, and

each one is jivy, slangy, and proface…He articulates the most cynical attitude heard in pop music since the punk movement…Ice-T’s talking book is the first rap album I’ve heard that I thought might have an even richer meaning for the parents of kids who buy it.”
