King Magazine is celebrating Ice-T's "Power" album cover and the 20th anniversary of its release. This was simply a dope album cover and should help King Magazine jump off the shelves!
Strapped with a Mausberg and a barely there, one-piece swimsuit, an arresting Darlene Ortiz stole men’s hearts at gunpoint in 1988. The scene of the crime: the cover art for Power, her then-hubby Ice-T’s second album. For one moment, the hip-hop community collectively considered joining the NRA, as Ice’s better half cemented her place in rap history books, leaving liner notes sticky in the process.
Two decades later, Ortiz’s ice-cold curves could still leave eyes frozen. In fact, the 41-year-old fitness instructor feels better than ever. “I couldn’t wait to do this,” Ortiz says of recreating Power’s iconic pose. “Now it’s up to me to try to encourage other women to take care of themselves.” Having been tight-lipped since her baby-daddy went cuckoo for Coco’s puffs seven years ago, Ortiz is back and ready to create a whole new set of lasting impressions. Needless to say, she’s still packing major heat.
This is the original Ice-T "Power" Album Cover. Home girl still looks amazing for 41!
