Ice-T & Body Count To Release New Album

(AllHipHop News) Some fans of Law & Order: SVU may be unaware that the man who plays Detective Odafin Tutuola was one of the pioneers of gangster rap and a co-founder of the heavy metal band Body Count, but Ice-T is ready to remind the world of musical beginnings. Ice announced on Twitter that he and BC are dropping a new album in the coming year.

While the band has reunited for several festival performances, including an appearance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest this past weekend, Manslaughter will be the first full length album from Body Count since 2006’s Murder 4 Hire.

Their self titled debut LP originally included the controversial song “Cop Killer,” but was removed from the release after backlash from then President George H.W. Bush, Vice-President Dan Quayle, and police organizations.

Ice-T’s last music project was the collaborative album Urban Legends with Black Ice in 2008.

    I respect Ice for still doing him, one of the few rappers that never jumped out the window and made a fool of himself to keep up with musical trends. There is no “Ice T featuring one of the Duff sisters” song (Shame on you Kool G. Rap smh), No crappy Ice T album showing his “Sensitive” side, etc etc ….. Dude gets his TV and Movie money to pay the bills and keeps his music authentic to who he is. Ice was doing this Rock band thing even before Rage Against the Machine and Limp Bizkit made it popular, people don’t give Body Count enough credit for that.
