Ice-T threw listeners quite a curve ball with his riveting third album, The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech. Just Watch What You Say - arguably the closest hip-hop has come to George Orwell's 1984. Instead of focusing heavily on gangsta rap, Ice-T made First Amendment issues the CD's dominant theme. Setting the album's tone is the opener, "Shut Up, Be Happy," which finds guest Jello Biafra (former leader of punk band Dead Kennedys) envisioning an Orwellian America in which the government controls and dominates every aspect of its citizens' lives
On The Iceberg, Ice-T continues with his typical pimp tales and violent gangsta raps but now with all the controversy surrounding the lyrical content in hip-hop, Ice-T has something else to focus on and he proceeds to try and put the fire ou. ith a can of gasoline. Angry at the perceived notion that his right to freedom of speech was not being held up as shown on the intro Shut Up, Be Happy done by none other than Dead Kennedys front man Jello Biafra who paints a bleak picture of an Orwellian society where the government has complete control of their citizens lives.
