GREATEST HITS: THE EVIDENCE is a suitable introduction to the iconic and self-proclaimed "original gangster" Ice-T. Curated by T himself, here one will find the trademark "O.G. Original Gangster," "New Jack City," and "I'm Your Pusher." All serve as testament to Ice-T's considerable influence on hip-hop as a whole, and particularly on the West Coast gangsta sound that would be dominant in the 1990s.
