Books: Definition Of Down By Darlene Ortiz & ICE by Ice-T and Douglas Century
I always love reading multiple perspectives of the same story. Ice T’s autobiography is a good look at early west coast hip hop and the rise of a real hustler. And Darlene, his first wife, was a big part of Ice’s early-days run (her book cover is from the photo shoot for Ice’s “Power” album). Interesting to read about young love and gangsterism from both perspectives and to see how each side recounts a relationships highs, lows, and end. Two real G’s right here.
