Tracy ‘Ice-T’ Lauren Marrow (born February 16, 1958), calling his inaugural Art of Rap Festival “the most prolific and essential hip-hop festival ever” told Rolling Stone’s Kory Grow, “Fans get a chance to see these guys candidly and hear how they feel about the art form…**It’s me giving back to hip-hop and doing a film that shows us in a good, positive light.”**

Hi. I am not certain if Tracy ‘Ice-T’ Lauren Marrow is pulling my leg when he claims he wants to display rappers in a positive light, or if he is simply an ignorant human being who fails to perceive reality.
