Ice-T has been on both sides of the law, playing a detective on Law & Order and releasing a song in 1992 titled "Cop Killer" with his band Body Count. For more than 30 years, Ice-T has made music and starred in everything from horror movies to comedies to cop dramas. Both his music and TV detective work have imitated real life, and he accomplished all of this without having a drink - because, as he says, sobriety gives him an "advantage."
