Album number 4 from Ice-T is maybe his defining statement. Although he came in on the tide of West Coast Gangster Rap, I never find him as compelling as peers like Ice Cube, N.W.A., and Tupac. He was angry and vulgar, but his persona seemed a little more like an act. And the year he put this out, he made his film debut in "New Jack City." There's even a song on here called "New Jack Hustler." And a song simply called "B***ches 2." The next year he'd become notorious with his band Body Count and their song "Cop Killer." Still if you're looking for a good example of gangsta rap in the early 90s, "Original Gangster" fits the bill. Or, rather, fits the body bag.
