Rapper Ice-T Proudly Reveals His Past As A Gymnast

On the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show, rapper turned actor, Ice-T revealed his past as a gymnast when Jimmy brought an old photo from his gymnastics career.

The photo of the rapper as a young gymnast on the pommel horse was supposed to be embarrassing for the rapper turned actor, who stars on the hit television series "Law and Order: SVU". Jimmy didn't get the answer he was looking for. Instead of being embarrassed, Ice-T (born Tracy Marrow), proudly talked about his gymnastics career.

"You gotta be strong as hell to do gymnastics," Ice-T said. "All the girls liked gymnastics, so I was like 'I'm gonna do that'," he told Jimmy proudly. "Then I was looking at the Olympic gymnasts and I was like 'these guys are doing some crazy strength moves on the rings."

He has a very frank answer for anyone that might question him on his gymnastics past.

"People are like 'You did gymnastics?' and I say yeah, and I'll kick your ass," he said.
