Tipper Gore vs. Ice-T

It was Ice-T, however, who caught the brunt of Tipper's attack on music. In the wake of his band Body Count's controversial song "Cop Killer," Tipper said Ice was responsible for increasing rates of violence against police officers in L.A. Under pressure from Tipper and others, Ice's label, Time Warner, refused to release his album Home Invasion, and he soon split ways with them.
