Below Utopia was a low-budget thriller starring Ice-T and Alyssa Milano. Ice-T wrote a hip-hop score for the film, but director Kurt Voss rejected the music, settling for a conventional score. Ice-T decided to release the music as Below Utopia: The Lost Score in 1998. Although the record isn't among Ice-T's best, it's nevertheless quite interesting for hardcore fans, since it demonstrates that Ice-T is capable of creating evocative, cinematic music without words.
