BOSTON (AP) — The rapper and actor Ice-T will be giving an inspirational talk to students at University of Massachusetts-Boston this week.
School officials say the lecture on Tuesday will concentrate on how to overcome the impossible.
Ice-T was orphaned as a child and became involved in the Los Angeles gang scene before spending four years in the U.S. Army.
Now the Grammy Award winner plays a detective on the TV show ‘‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.’’
Along with his wife, he also features in TV reality show ‘‘Ice Loves Coco.’’
