At the age of 18, IcebergSlim was initiated into “the life”. Predominately in Chicago, he was incarcerated several times for pimping along with several other crimes. During his last stretch in prison he wrote “Pimp” which sold over 6 million copies. In 1976 Slim made this recording, “Reflections” – the poignant and memorable recounting of many of his true life experiences. The stories told are not easily forgotten and leave their indelible mark on the listener.
Two movies with Iceberg Slim in the works: “Pimp” starring Ice T and “Mama Black Widow” starring Mos Def & Macy Gray.
