Reseña de álbum

Before Ice-T's ascension, L.A. rappers were known primarily for a synthesizer-dominated sound indebted to Kraftwerk's innovations as well as Afrika Bambaataa's 1982 hit, "Planet Rock." While L.A. did have its share of hardcore rappers in the mid-'80s (including Toddy Tee, King Tee, and of course, Ice-T), hardcore rap was dominated by the East Coast. That begin to change in 1987, when Ice-T's debut album, Rhyme Pays, was released and sold several hundred thousand copies. Hard-hitting offerings like "409," "Make It Funky," and the title song (which samples Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" and underscores the L.A. resident's love of heavy metal) left no doubt that Ice had very little in common with the Egyptian Lover, the World Class Wreckin' Cru, or the L.A. Dream Team. The album doesn't contain as much gangsta rap as some of his subsequent releases, but it did have enough to stir some controversy. On "Squeeze the Trigger," "Pain," and a new version of "6 'N the Mornin'" (which had been the B-side of Ice's 1986 single "Doggin' the Wax" on Techno-Hop), Ice portrays ruthless felons and raps candidly about the horrors of the urban ghetto he'd been only too familiar with. With the release of Rhyme Pays, the West Coast was well on its way to becoming a crucial part of hip-hop.

Classic!

Buy this if you love hip hop.

O.G.

ICE-T was and always will remain one of my favorite "gangsta" rappers. Why? Because he was one of the first and biggest, and unlike many of the "other" gangsta wannabees, he was REALLY an O.G. and wasn't just rapping with a black hat and a pair of Loc's! Rhyme Pays has several of ICE T staples, including the title track, 409 and 6 N' the Mornin'. If you wanna relive that old school hip hop hardcore, this is the album. Also check out ICE T "Power" and "The Iceberg".

The Rhyme Pays Report

This album is a "Certified Hip Hop/Gangster Classic!". This Album was the gateway to the Westcoast "back in tha day"'! For those who don't know...Never will! Because they don't know real Hip Hop!

Género: Hip-Hop/Rap

Ice-T (born Tracy Marrow) has proven to be one of hip-hop's most articulate and intelligent stars, as well as one of its most frustrating. At his best, the rapper has written some of the best portraits of ghetto life and gangsters, as well as some of the best social commentary hip-hop has produced. Just as often, he can slip into sexism and gratuitous violence, and even then his rhymes are clever and biting. Ice-T's best recordings have always been made in conjunction with strong collaborators, whether...
