Ice-T’s wife, Coco, had strippers taking notes when she hopped on stage and danced at Sapphire on the Upper East Side Sunday night.
Ice-T co-hosted a “post-COVID” party at the Manhattan jiggle joint with film producer Noel Ashman — who also DJ’d, we hear — and Coco hit the stage when he played “I’m in Love with the Coco” by O.T. Genasis.
“Every stripper stopped dancing and started staring at her on stage. They all then gave her a high-five. It was really funny. Ice-T told him what to play, and they were going back and forth with the songs,” a spy told Page Six.
Unlike the strippers, Coco was “in her normal Coco clothes — a revealing top and tight pants,” the source said.
Ashman played music from two iPhones and an obsolete iPod, we’re told. When he played popular tracks like “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson, and “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5, Ice-T jokingly announced, “‘Anyone who doesn’t know this should leave!,’” the partygoer said.
When Ice-T, 63, wasn’t having fun with the crowd, the rapper-turned-“Law & Order” star was asking “all the girls who are not strippers to show their t–s,” the source said, and “a lot of them did.”
The club was so packed that security had to usher in Ice-T and Coco through a back entrance.
Old-school hip-hoppers like Treach and The Kangol Kid were also on the scene. At one point in the night, Ice-T and Treach honored late rap legends DMX and Biz Markie, which then turned into a spontaneous concert.
“They performed about four songs each including ‘O.P.P’ and ‘Colors.’ Treach went on stage with a huge wad of 20s and started spraying the crowd,” an insider said.
The evening ended a little after 4 a.m. with “everyone plastered,” we’re told.
