EXCLUSIVE: Ice T Talks New Body Count Album, Killing White People In Music Video + MORE (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Ice T has not released a body of music in eight years, but his rock/rap hybrid group Body Count is preparing to release their fifth album later this year. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with AllHipHop Ice T explains the concepts of the new album, why only white people were murdered in the band’s latest video “Talk Sh*t, Get Shot” and more.

Last month, Body Count and Ice T released the music video for their single “Talk Sh*t, Get Shot” and received large amount of criticism for the video being that only white people were shot. According to T, the race of the victims in the videos were purely the director’s vision and not his or the group’s:

The video director only brought white people for us to shoot. I didn’t direct that video. So the guy, Frank, he brought his friends. People were lining up to get killed. So we snatched the Black guy. But, I didn’t say ‘I want to shoot an Asian and a Mexican. That, people overintellectualized the music.

The group has a history of controversial music, none more culturally abrasive than 1992’s “Cop Killer”. According to T, the world that Body Count creates in their music is not always identical to reality:

Body Count is intentionally hyper-violent,  hyper-sexual Rock-N-Roll. I call it Grindhouse music. It’s like the movie Machete or something. It’s over the top. So, in the world of Body Count, I can reach through a phone and snatch somebody. The bloggers get shot..and the cops get killed. It doesn’t really happen in real life, but that’s a part of the artform.

      Most the youngsters have nothing to say, it’s all money money, bullshit bullshit and more bullshit. His new album touches on some subjects and has some fun too and ice does it well.

      • yeah… but it sucks really bad. like ice t should be embarrased at how bad it sucks. lol

      • did i mention how bad it sucks? oh wait… i did already…..

      • Gameonfool

        You learn first hand P.T.S.T
        Your best friends killed by an I.E.D
        You watch your whole team get blown apart
        You catch a frag and a Purple Heart
        You write back home – you lost your pride
        You struggle with thoughts of suicide
        To this country you’ve gave your life
        And we must respect your sacrifice

        New body count song: I will always love you
        100% pure garbage as you said I think not.
        You look like you suck, eat a dick

  • I have seen him on 2 late night shows dloing songs… and its pathetic. Its super wack. idk how the band and ice himself are not embarrassed, Its that bad. its that wack. Ice Tea is delusional. He getting paid to do a tour for some engery drink shit so he got his old corny band together and wrote some quickly thrown together tracks that are 100 percent pure garbage. terrible rhymes.

    ICE T is a very fine actor on LAW & ORDER:SVU, and while some moments of this latest album don’t really live up to his past efforts, it still has some good moments of sharp guitar work combined with a lot of energy. – This is where hip hop and thrash metal intersect…
