I actually like Ice-T.
He's done a great job as a solo artist and as an actor (ok there's loads of crap as well, but he was awesome on New Jack City and Law&Order), plus despite his gang past, he comes across as a righteous and intelligent man with his head in the right place.

But Body Count is rubbish and always was. What the hell is he thinking?

hahaha, I just realized I was thinking of Ice Cube. Either way, nothing funnier than a rapper turned actor.

Ice T was one of the first rappers to do TV acting. I remember back in the mid-90's there was a cop drama called New York Undercover about two gay cops, one black and one Puerto Rican, and Ice T was the villain in a few of the episodes.

T and Cube are both great old school rappers...don't much care for their extracurricular activities

Body Count has always been nothing more than a METAL parody, regardless of how seriously they want to be about it

Gears of War? Gods of War? Fvck that sh** man, I'm gonna throw on some REAL black metal:

NP---ASSASSINS of War---Hirax
