We were lucky enough to get a little time with the West Coast’s Ambassador of Gangsta, Ice-T, when Hip Hop Honors taped last week. As he held court in the the press room (ignoring the moderator’s time limits) we realized Ice-T might be one of the savviest players in the game. Check out some of what he had to say, and be sure to tune in tonight at 10 p.m. to see Ice-T pay tribute to Snoop.
“I ended up on Law and Order. They asked me to do four shows, and now I’m on my ninth year. I’ll be on that show til they throw my black ass off. It’s a good look.”
“Imagine that — Ice-T playing the police.”
“I judge men by their women. If I see you and she all out of pocket, that’s a reflection on you. I’m going to see if she’s looking good. If you got on all the jewels and her shoes is bad, then I’m going to be like, ‘Player, you ain’t handling your business correctly.’”
“I never fronted on my albums. When I put a girl in the video, that was my girl. I never had a model in a picture with me, in life. I never posed with a car that wasn’t mine.”
“When I did the new album Gangsta Rap, with me and Coco lying in bed on the album butt-naked, I was kind of like laying there one morning looking at myself like ‘Damn, this sh*t’s kind of fly right now.’ I ain’t posing — this is the truth.”
“Most of my moves you won’t understand for two or three years.”
