Hey Ice I watched your movie "the art of rap" and I loved it! What do you think of the new school west coast? like Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, YG and Freddie Gibbs? How does it compare to the old school? Thanks for doing this!

IceMFingT128 karma

I love it... Old school is just more dangerous.

Whats up Ice-T, big fan here, you should definitely check out reddit HipHopHeads! What do you consider to be your best album/song that you have put out over the years? Also, what do you see in the future for hip-hop in general?

IceMFingT54 karma

I'd say OG... Hip Hop is now POP music.

ioyou34 karma

Ice-T have you spoken with Dave Chappelle lately? I remember the player haters' ball which was one of my all-time favourite sketches, I'd love to see you guys do something again, is there any chance?

IceMFingT42 karma

No... I saw him a couple years ago.. but I've been watching his old shows.. The best!

BobbyGrill31 karma

Hey Ice-T, who's your favorite rapper?

tired_commuter28 karma

Ice T:

How difficult was it to play the role of Scotty given your alleged ties to the crips?

And is there any truth that you felt you needed to 'make up for it' by recording Cop Killer?

Loving the podcast by the way.

Hahah lies.. It's just acting. I can't arrest anyone. Even the gang banggers know that!

HLAW713 karma

Who do you think is to blame for the increased POP nature of hip hop? The music used to have a clear anti-establishment edge to it and it seems now that the more political fight the power message is no longer there. What do you think of the politics of hip hop today?

IceMFingT42 karma

Radio won... If you make music to fit into a radio format it will end up POP.

LyingPervert1 karma

IceMFingT2 karma

Rollins is the fucking MAN. I learned a lot from watching dude.

idbonescully1 karma

Ice, big fan here. Love Law & Order SVU. Been working my way through the entire catalog for the last year or so. Currently a season behind, but I'm almost caught up!

Was there any backlash to the show when Christopher Meloni left? Also, the way they wrote him out was totally fitting for his character. I know it took me a couple episodes to warm up to the new detectives, but now I find them just as great! Keep up the good work and hope to see many more episodes of SVU!

IceMFingT2 karma

I talk about that on my first podcast

kmhokies351 karma

Ice-T, what is something that you might have had a cameo in that most people wouldn't know about?

IceMFingT10 karma

I gotta lot of wack movies that i hope nobody ever sees!! lol
