In the 1980s, the streets of Compton were brutal. Five friends were brought together by their raw talent for translating the struggles they faced into powerful, poetic music. As the group came together, adopting the name N.W.A., their world steadily began to change around them, becoming a far darker place. And with the release of one particularly controversial song in the wake of a horrific tragedy, N.W.A. were thrown into the public eye, and became the forerunners of a revolution. But looking back, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella still saw themselves as just a group of friends, straight outta Compton.

Retired heavyweight boxers Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson greet each other on the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the boxing documentary 'Champs'. The pair are most famous for their vicious 1997 'Bite Fight' which saw Tyson bite off a chunk of Holyfield's ear.
Crikey! Coco Austin certainly got into the swing of things during her debut performance in Peepshow on Monday night (December 17, 2012). Unleashing her killer curves at Sin City's Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, the 33-year-old glamour model and wife of Ice-T flaunted her figure in nude lingerie...and not much else.
Austin plays the lead role of Bo Peep in the huge production - a role previously filled by Playboy model Holly Madison. Speaking to Vegas.com, Coco said, "It's an exhilarating feeling to be practically naked, but you know I was just hoping that people would like my body. I've been working out really hard lately." Though she clearly fits the Peepshow mould, Austin admits she never envisaged herself starring in her own Vegas show, adding, "I never even thought about it. First of all, I don't have the body. I'm short, and I'm kind of stocky. So I would think, that will never happen. I always discussed it in dance class when I was nine years old. You know dancers, when you're that age, you're always trying to get to Vegas, that's the level you want to get to, but even though I talked about it I never thought I was really going to be there someday."
Ice-T took to Twitter to express his distinct distaste regarding recent instagram photos of his wife seen posing with another guy. Ice considers it disrespectful and is letting everyone know about it.
The photos were of Coco having a bit of a cuddle with rapper AP.9 in Las Vegas where she's currently performing in a burlesque show.
Although both the photos and his tweets have since been deleted, Yahoo managed to catch them in time. They report that he said: "Don't get it twisted, I'm not happy about this sh*t." Adding, "Most of [the pics are] disrespectful and in bad taste. She's made me look and feel like sh*t." Ice defended his Twitter rage: "I say this on Twitter because there's no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple."

Ice T was disrespected by his own wife, Coco, when pictures of her canoodling with another rapper (AP.9, from Mob Figaz) were obtained by MediaTakeOut.
It’s bad enough finding out your wife has been somewhat less than faithful to you, but finding out because there are pictures of your wife humiliating you, all over the internet? Well, that’s got to be pretty galling, huh?
Coco was quick to apologise, according to E! Online (though, presumably, only after the pictures went online). As with all the best celebrity relationship feuds, this one was played out on Twitter, where Ice T sought refuge in order that he may defend his honour. He has since deleted the pictures that he took, after posting messages such as “Don't get it twisted, I'm not happy about this s—t… Most of [the pics are] disrespectful and in bad taste. She's made me look and feel like s--t.” And Coco responded by saying “Ice is right,the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened… I feel so sad,the bottom line is I love Ice & I can understand why he's upset theres no excuse for my actions.I'm so sorry baby & to everyone.”

Hip hop has always been more of a culture than just a genre of music. It represents a huge portion of the marginalised world of America and how they managed to create something from nothing; how their lifestyle and previously buried literary talents created a culture that has inspired millions. The frontman of rap/ metal band Body Count Ice-T takes his audience on the road to visit the founding fathers, the major superstars and the rising stars of the rap genre including Afrika Bambaataa, Eminem, Nas, Mos Def, Kanye West, Chuck D, Krs-One, Snoop Dogg, Run-DMC, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and discover the skill and feeling behind what has made them international music heroes. One of the frequent interviewees is Grandmaster Caz who we are taken to visit on several occasions as he writes a new set of rhymes called 'The Art Of Rap'.
Directed by Ice-T with help from Andy Baybutt, 'Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap' is a feature length music documentary delving into what goes into making the seminal hip hop records that have dominated music since the late '70s. It came about when producer Paul Toogood asked Ice-T the simplest of question which the star had never before been asked: How did he write seminal tracks such as '6 In The Mornin' and 'Colors'?
