ICE T'S "AFRICA" PENDANT, WORN BY HIM ON THE COVER OF HIS ALBUM POWER


The Los Angeles Daily News on Power: "Sex and guns are but two forms of power explored on Ice-T's Power album, a disc that implicates everyone from radio programmers to the police as accomplices in the decline of western civilization."


Produced by Ice-T and Afrika Islam and released on September 13, 1988, Power is the second studio album by rapper Ice T. Recorded in Los Angeles at DJ Evil E's home (Evil E and Ice T's then-girlfriend Darlene Ortiz are featured on the album cover), the studio featured a board hooked up to speakers resembling a car's stereo system in order to test how their tape would sound in its intended environment. According to Afrika Islam, making the album at DJ Evil E's home (aka Syndicate Studios West) allowed for no time constraints, although Ice T remarked that "The recording was fast..." and took place over "...a matter of a month, maybe two at the most." Regardless of timescale, remarkable success was achieved, as Power was certified platinum in 2006.
