CNN PRODUCER NOTE professirx says the annual Montclair Festival hosted special guest Ice-T on May 5. He has met Ice-T on a previous occasion, when he and his production team filmed a scene for his music video, of which he posted an iReport about. He is a big fan of Ice-T, and respects the path that he has taken in his life from being a criminal to becoming an actor and hip-hop artist. 'Ice-T's speech inspired me to not give up and believe I can still have a chance becoming a paralyzed hip hop artist and reality show figure.'
