Ice-T has a new talk show, "Ice & Coco" and fans are excited with his proclamation that the show with wife Coco Austin will be "real, crazy, funky" (Daily Mail - June 5). For some fans the pairing of Ice-T and his buxom bombshell wife Coco with Fox television is a 'marriage made in heaven' as the rapper/actor is known for making inflammatory comments which fits in the bold nature of the tv projects associated with Fox network.
Ice-T's fans on social media are ready for him to 'shock the senses' with comments about topics such as men in 2015 now being 'soft' and him and his wife now trying to have a baby (Life & Style - May 15). His name being mentioned is sufficient enough to get the attention of fans and with his natural propensity for saying the things that many people might think but are too scared to say his new talk show possesses huge potential for success.
His willingness to stay in the reality tv show realm after the cancellation of the E! reality show "Ice Loves Coco" has some fans thinking that the rapper/actor is preparing for life after "Law and Order: SVU". There has been no announcement that the show is about to end but he has been on the television show for fifteen years, the equivalent of two lifetimes in Hollywood and as such his image to many television fans he is the tough detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutola, not the scary, provocative music entertainer Ice-T.
Ice-T introduced the United States to 'gangster rap', one of the most inflammatory and controversial forms of rap music and he became an international recording superstar with it. The question some entertainment fans have in 2015 is will he be able to 'connect' with tv audiences as the 'alpha' male men want to be but are often scared or too politically correct to admit openly as he has one of the most attractive women in the entertainment industry as his wife and an 'open mic' on national television to tell viewers about life in his home and how he sees it.
