1K: Get me that repellant!

5K: Well, in interviews w/ LL Cool J, whose acting on NCIS LA I admire though I know nothing of his music & don't care one way or the other about the little I've heard, he says it means Ladies Loves Cool J(ames?), which at the young time he made up his name he hoped they would.

Van Ice is a white guy. Not in NWA. Which I've read or heard means "N-word With Attitude". This is the key clue here, as anyone could push anyone into a freezer.

Ice T, about whose music see comment on LL above, & whose acting on LAWN SVU I admire, was not, from any reading I can recall, in NWA. (From the reading I've seen pictures of his "too much Botox or something equally weird" wife, but that's another matter.)

Leaves Cube.
