Ice T Says Radio Hip-Hop Sucks
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.16.2014



In an interview with NME, Ice-T said that mainstream radio hip-hop "sucks". His band Body Count released their fifth album Manslaughter in June.

He said: "Hip-hop's gone in a different direction it's club music, no content, just 'I got money, cars, girls'. Underground hip-hop's still prolific, but the stuff on the radio sucks."

The new album has a new version of Ice T's single "99 Problems", which was sampled by Jay Z on his 2004 song of the same name. When asked if he was worried people would think he was covering Jay Z, he replied: "When we were recording, the band would play the licks to Jay Z's '99 Problems' and I'd sing the real lyrics over the top. Some people would say, 'That's Jay Z's song', and I'd be like, 'Dumb fuck, that's my shit.' I wrote it 11 years before him! It's a booby trap we put on the album."

Manslaughter is Body Count's first album since 2006's Murder 4 Hire.
