“Black culture loves ice. We name ourselves after Iceberg Slim, Ice-T, Ice Cube. If you’re the hip-hop group M.O.P you can make a song like “Cold as ice” where you rhyme about “blastin’ niggaz” when they sample stuff from Foreigner’s hit song “Cold as ice” – you’re as cold as ice, you’re willing to sacrifice … (…) So, yeah, there’s along history in black culture of being a “cold muthafucka”. It’s about being a “frigid” person: the ice grill, bling bling, bounce off the light of diamonds in your teeth. Yeah, that’s ice.”

Paul D. Miller, AKA DJ Spooky, that subliminal kid “The Book of Ice”
