The Seventh Deadly Sin, released in 1999, is the seventh album by Ice-T.

Reception[edit]

Professional reviews:

  • Spin (11/99, p. 191) - 7 out of 10 - "...Ice is content to bluster about his long-gone playa days while lazily conjugating the verb 'to f*ck' cynically hoping to snag a few Web-savvy, undiscerning No Limit fans with some respect for history..."
  • Alternative Press (12/99, p. 102) - 3 out of 5 - "...[Ice] seems to be handling advancing age relatively well....Ice sounds more ferocious than he has in years....at his age Ice probably has problems keeping certain things hard, his rhymes aren't one of them."
  • Vibe (11/99, p. 197) - "...In true mack form, [Ice] re-returns as tight as ever....Ice has kept his chops up....Fans of the real rap will always hold a warm spot in their hearts for the ice-cold MC."
  • The Source (11/99, pp. 224–6) - 3 mics out of 5 - "...rapping like it's still 1988....it's all good to hear veterans like Ice-t come out of retirement possessed the same independent-minded spirit which first drove him to pick up the mic so many years ago..."

"Ice-T is back in form with his Seventh Sin album which is a far better effort than the lacklustre Return of The Real.
