Ice T was flanked by his wife Coco Austin, and his children Letesha Marrow, Chanel Nicole Marrow and Tracy Marrow Jr as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday.

Ice’s Law & Order: SVU co-star, Mariska Hargitay, was in attendance at the event and spoke highly about her longtime friend.



Hargitay said during her emotional speech, “I want to tell you that it is so profoundly right that your name is now here, forever commemorated in this place. Because there is something else that I hold sacred, and that is friendship. Your achievements and your artistry and your whole verbal judo, your whole story, runs so deep.”

Adding, “It runs deep particularly here in L.A. and it runs deep around the world. You’re a rapper and an actor and an Artist, and at a time when people overuse words without thinking and wearing out the meanings, you are indeed the real O.G.’

Mariska went on to talk about Ice, the “devoted” husband and father.

She said, “You have lived a story that has shaped how you look at the world. A story that would have hardened many people beyond recognition, but instead, it filled you with humanity, with humility, with grace, and with oh so much wisdom.”

She continued, “You are a devoted husband and a proud, proud, proud father, and you are taking your place here for all those reasons and for so many more. But to me, Ice, the reason that you’re here and the reason that you have fame in my heart is because you are the O.G. of friendship.”

Ice T, real name, Tracy Lauren Marrow, is a rapper, songwriter, actor, and producer. As an actor, Ice-T has been in films Breakin’ and its sequels, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo and Rappin’, and New Jack City. Since 2000, he has portrayed NYPD Detective/Sergeant Odafin Tutuola on the NBC police drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
