The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech...Just Watch What You Say is the third album by American rapper Ice-T, released in 1989 on Sire Records. The album has an uncharacteristically gritty sound, and features some of the darkest songs that Ice-T has ever recorded. It was released after Ice-T began encountering censorship problems while on tour. The album's cover, featuring a b-boy with a shotgun shoved in his mouth and two pistols pressed against each side of his head, reflected Ice-T's experiences with the concept of freedom of speech.
