Ice-T recently appeared on Lifetime’s Celebrity Home Raiders, alongside wife Coco, in which they showed off valuable possessions they own… and auctioned off for charity.
Among those items was a rare copy of the rap legend’s 1993 album, Home Invasion, the first album he released following the backlash from his controversial song “Cop Killer.” The production copies are not rare, but the one Ice shows off is… because it carries the Warner Bros. logo. The copies that were mass-produced were distributed by Priority Records.
During the show, Ice-T explains that he initially took the labum to his then-label Warner Bros., but they were criticial of his lyrics. So, he took the album and went to Priority and the rest is history.
However, he walked away with a sample copy that Warner Bros. printed up… making it a rare hip-hop collectible.
During the show, the auction started at $1,000.
