Law And Order: SVU’s Ice-T teams up with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and more for a new TV show

For more than 450 episodes, rapper and producer Ice-T has been at the heart of fans of Law and Order: SVUthough it may not be as important as crossover moments between Benson and Stabler. But his career has obviously extended far beyond the role of Sergeant Fin, and Ice-T is currently putting together a brand new TV project that will have him teaming up with NWA’s Arab Prince, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and a host of other great musicians and actors. And not only does it sound like a great idea, there’s already a multimedia franchise being created around it.

The new project will be a graphic novel first and then an animated action series titled Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City, which is the co-creation of Ice-T, Arabian Prince and artist Tommy the Animator. At this point, there will be more products on the table, including toys, NFTs, and music. After breaking down the basic plot, we’ll explore why the musical element is such an exciting prospect for this particular project, which is currently being bought up by streaming services and TV networks.

According Deadline, Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City focuses on a world of criminals, pushers and killers where distinctions such as heroes and villains can describe the same person. In the animated series, Ice-T is set to voice dirty mayor Chuck Davis, while the rapper’s wife, Coco, will play the local leader’s killer girlfriend, Rhonda Knuckles, which is a fucking awesome character name. . Davis has ties to all sorts of underground activities in an effort to keep himself above all of his gang rivals, and uses a black market intelligence network to stay on top. But such behavior will soon come at a higher price, as it always does in this kind of dog-eating dog society.

Now take a look at the stellar lineup of co-stars who will be involved beyond Ice-T, Coco and host Tommy.

  • Snoop Dogg
  • Tracy Morgan
  • Treat
  • Emilio Rivera
  • mike eps
  • arab prince
  • Busta Rimes
  • P-models
  • Your Asset
  • Peter Scanavino
  • Roxanne Shante
  • Ben Baller
  • Shannon Eric Denton

It’s an assortment of rap piety beyond the talents of actors like Mayans MC star Emilio Rivera, The Upshaws‘Mike Epps and Ice-T’s Law and Order: SVU co-starring Peter Scanavino. Now why is all this so badass? Because the one and only Dr. Dre will manage the score of the first season for Death for rent, and each of the rappers involved will write the lyrics and then record their own theme songs. What I Already Know will be a go-to no matter what the graphic novel and anime series look like. Here’s hoping Ghostface Killah joins this beast at some point, because there are few artists better at rapping about toons and pop culture.

For a quick preview of what the show will look like, here’s what Ice-T had to say in the announcement:

Want some real punch-in-the-face action? So it’s Death for Hire.

Death for Hire: The Origin of Tehk City will be written by Gary Phillips, who serves as executive editor of FX’s acclaimed drug drama Snowfall.

When Law and Order: SVU returns to NBC for Season 24 on Thursday, September 22 it will be without Amanda Rollins, while former star Kelly Giddish surprisingly quit the procedural drama between seasons. But fans will see past Chicago PD and FBI: Most Wanted actress Molly Burnett joins the team to move forward. Don’t expect to see End of Ice-T go anywhere, as the actor likely won’t be stepping down anytime soon. Although if he does, he’s already said he wants out in a big and deadly way.

Waiting to see where Death for rent ends, and what its soundtrack will look like, head over to our 2022 TV premiere schedule for all the new and recurring shows that are definitely coming soon.
