Celebs.com’s Elliot V. Kotek chats to Ice T and his manager & film director¬†Jorge Hinojosa, about their documentary “Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp” at AFCI’s Beyond Cinema Studio presented by Celebs.com.

The documentary, which played at the Toronto International Film Festival, delves into the life of a well-known pimp who fell out of the game and onto hard times and found himself writing about his experiences, a move that propelled his stature to a peerage of few other well-known writers in his time who were writing from the Black perspective. Though the man passed in 1985, his popularity endures today.
