"Up early.. @cutespartacus has to get knee surgery today.. It's a simple operation that common for bulldogs. Still sucks. Wish him luck...," he tweeted. (Ice T's Twitter)
Aside from a music career, Ice has spent over a decade building a name as a television actor.
In the summer of 1996, Ice-T released his first rap album since 1993, Return of the Real. The album was greeted by mixed reviews and it failed to live up to commercial expectations. 7th Deadly Sin followed in 1999. Ice-T then returned to acting, taking a role on NBC's Law & Order : Special Victims Unit playing, ironically, a police officer. (All Music)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
