Oh, Coco! Ice-T's wife is QUITE the jack-of-all-trades these days: Just this month she released her clothing line Licious, debuted a reality show with her hubby called Ice Loves Coco, and will release her first-ever single on iTunes called "Shoe Freak." LUCKILY, we got our hands on a sneak peek of her song and, whew. WHEW. This girl isn't kidding—she's a shoe FUUHHH-REAAAK, y'all. She names 16 designers that she "needs" high heels from, which, apparently, is sending her into a "Louis Vuitton frenzy," which plagues us on the regular. Here's a treat for your brain stems: Let us break down the one solid minute of lyrics that we got our grubby little hands on.

Over the weekend, the New York fashion community learned something new—that Ice-T's improbably proportioned wife Coco has a clothing line. And while there's plenty of low-hanging fruit to plunder in discussions of fledgling fashion brands launched by former Playboy models, since I have an enormous amount of respect of Fin Tutuola in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, I will strive for diplomacy and a delicate touch.
We'll see how that goes.
The thing about the blonde bombshell's foray into apparel is that she's actually had a denim line since 2009. The unorthodox spandex to cotton ratio of her jeans not only flattered her absolutely INSANE physique in this Twitpic dated December 12, but was actually a respectably early form of the jegging (a trend that outright refuses to die despite my attempts to kill it with fire). In that aspect, she was definitely on to something and could have made a grip of loot with the right positioning.
But then there's another aspect that's truly hilarious and emblematic of the cloistered life that the trophy wife of Ice-T would lead.
