Air Force 1's Signed By Ice-T And Fab 5 Freddy Up for Auction

Air Force 1's Signed By Ice-T And Fab 5 Freddy Up for Auction

A pair of Nike Air Force 1's signed by iconic MC Ice T and Graffiti artist and Hip-Hop ambassador Fab 5 Freddy are up for auction.

The kicks were a gift to Mayor Bloomberg when Ice T and Fab 5 visited City Hall in 2008 to announce that the annual Hip Hop Honors awards show would remain in New York. At the time, Ice T said, "My people said Bloomberg's cool," according to the New York Post. Bloomberg reportedly said last week after being informed of the auction, "So that's what happened to those sneakers."

Gifts to mayors actually belong to the city, and proceeds from the auctions benefit the Municipal Archives Reference and Research Fund (MARRD). The items gifted to mayors are called Gifts To The City auctions and will occur on a rolling basis, with the first starting this month. In addition to items gifted to Mayor Bloomberg, the site has auctions with gifts to Mayors Koch, Dinkins and Giuliani.

Ice T made news earlier this month after he appeared in a Saturday Night Live sketch with the show's guest host comedian Dave Chappelle. He posted to social media:,"Somebody said they’re gonna CANCEL me after doing SNL with Dave Chappelle.. LOL! These MFs have been trying to Cancel me for over 30yrs!" Ice also celebrated via social media being one of the longest-running male actors in Hollywood. The "6 In The Mornin'" MC captioned the post with, "Longest running male actor in TV history. Don't tell me what CAN'T be done."
