Rapper-turned-actor Ice-T is set to uncover the secrets behind the man who inspired his hip-hop stage pseudonym - he is producing a documentary about novelist Iceberg Slim.
Ice-T - real name Tracy Marrow - has credited the acclaimed author and former pimp as his reason for seeking fame and fortune, prompting him to adopt his stage name in honour of his hero.
He is now planning to document the tale of the Trick Baby writer, spanning from his 35 years as a career criminal to his rise as one of black America’s most revered writers.
And Ice-T believes fans will be as intrigued by the enigmatic man’s biography as he is.
He tells the New York Post’s gossip column PageSix, "Iceberg Slim has been one of the most influential people in black culture. Few people know the story behind the man and it’s time that story is told."
