In #1992 Rapper #IceT announced that Warner Brothers Records would pull the controversial song ‘#CopKiller’ from all future copies of his “#BodyCount” album.

The song had been the target of protests by law enforcement groups who said it encouraged the killing of police. Ice T said he would give away recordings of ‘Cop Killer’ at his concerts. In an ironic twist, he would later join the cast of the NBC police drama, Law And Order. #TWIMH
