Ice T doesn't want to make hip-hop music any more because he thinks it is just ''club music'' now.
Ice T doesn't want to make hip-hop music any more.
The 56-year-old musician is releasing a new rock album with his thrash metal band Body Count and says this is the kind of music he prefers now as hip hop has lost its way.
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.
''Ice T has always been about hardcore, aggressive music. With Body Count, it's art, it's over the top, it's hypersexual.
''I roll with the people who get it. The people who don't, I throw them a Barry Manilow album.''
And Ice also mocked hip-hop fans who ''act tough'' but have no idea what it is really like in the worlds they enjoy hearing about.
Discussing his track 'Wanna Be A Gangsta', he told NME magazine: [It's critical of] suburban kids listening to rap and acting tough behind their keyboards.
''If they touch down on those streets, they're gonna get their ass sewn up.''
