A black and white photograph of Ice-T performing.
Ice-T is in the center of the image, facing the proper left side. He is wearing a white t-shirt, a white baseball cap with the brim sticking up, a necklace, and a watch on his proper left wrist. He is holding onto a microphone with his left hand, raised to his open mouth. Another man is pictured in front of him, leaning down towards the proper right side of the image. He is wearing a t-shirt, a black cap, and an earring in the shape of a cross in his proper left ear. He is leaning forward and is holding something under his left arm. There is also a man in the proper right background with a white t-shirt and sunglasses. There are lights on the ceiling and graffiti in the background. Some audience heads are out of focus in the proper bottom left corner.
On the back of the print is a handwritten inscription by Bill Adler identifying the subject and photographer.
