Comedian Dave Chappelle often talks about Iceberg Slim during his stand-up routines. According to Chapelle, Iceberg Slim got his name by keeping ice-cold in a shoot-out where he stayed at the bar drinking his drink even though a bullet pierced his hat, a story told at the end of chapter 13 in Slim’s Pimp.
