Ice-T, a rapper and producer, has been a major draw for fans of Law & Order: SVU, if not quite as strong as Benson's. However, his career has far expanded far beyond the role of Sergeant Fin, and Ice-T is now forming a brand new TV project that will feature him alongside other NWAs like Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg. Its also virtually already a multimedia franchise.
The first installment of the new project will be a graphic novel, followed by an animated action series called Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City, which is co-created by Ice-T, Arabian Prince, and artist Tommy the Animator. Before discussing the main plot, take a look at why the music aspect is such a popular option for this project in particular, which is currently being streamed through streaming services and TV networks.
Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City is a fictional world populated by criminals, pushed, and murdered people in which distinctions such as heroes and villains can be made. Rhonda Knuckles is a fouling awesome character name that Davis has used to splinter his way into this kind of dog-eat-dog society.
Now take a look at the amazing lineup of co-stars that will be involved beyond Ice-T, Coco, and Tommy the Animator.
- Snoop Dogg
- Tracy Morgan
- Emilio Rivera
- Mike Epps
- Arabian Prince
- Busta Rhymes
- Styles P
- Tone Trump
- Peter Scanavino
- Roxanne Shante
- Ben Baller
- Shannon Eric Denton
Beyond the talents of actors like Mayans M.C. star Emilio Rivera, The Upshaws Mike Epps, and Ice-Ts Law & Order: SVU co-star Peter Scanavino, Is all this badass? Because each of the rappers involved will be writing the lyrics for and recording their own theme songs, which I already know is a must-have in any graphic novel and animated series.
Ice-T had to state what he'll do during the program for a quick taste:
Do you want some serious punch-you-in-the-face action? Then look no further than Death for Hire.
Gary Phillips, who plays an executive story editor on FX's highly successful drug-addled drama Snowfall, will write Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City.
Law & Order: SVU returns to NBC for Season 24 on Thursday, September 22, but Amanda Rollins will be left, as now-former actress Molly Burnett has dropped out of the procedural drama in the previous seasons. Dont expect Ice-Ts Fin to go anywhere anytime soon, as he has already stated that he wants to go out in a huge and deadly way.
