Ice-T Has Played Too Human

An interview with Ice-T turns from tired to super-excited as soon as gaming is brought up.

I love Ice-T. Actually, I think I like the idea of Ice-T more than Ice-T's music these days. Though he's certainly great on SVU. And his appearance in Pimps Up, Hoes Down is a pivotal moment that taught me everything I need to know about running a business, provided that business is the sale of hand grenades.

And now there's one more reason to love Ice-T--dude is pro-Prestige. In an interview with In the Box, Ice-T lays down what music he's currently into and stakes his claim as a serious Call of Duty 4 player. He even gives out his gamertag, LORD 187X. Which is a great name.

But first, here's the video. If you aren't interested in seeing Ice-T's views on music and how he "keeps it one-hundred," skip ahead to around 2:40.

  


There is cursing in this video, by the way. Maybe I should have said that before. Ice and I share the same world view when it comes to the COD4 prestige system. On the topic, he says "All you pussies who won't hit the prestige button, eat a dick." Truer words have never been spoken, sir.

Someone get this man in a studio and make him record the end credits to IW4/COD6 already!

Taking a look at the man's Xbox 360 profile gives a revealing look at Ice-T's gaming habits. Here are some helpful Ice-T facts!

  • Ice-T appeared as an unlockable character in UFC: Tapout.
  • Ice-T has played Too Human (only one acheivement, though).
  • Ice-T has defeated Razor Callahan, as he has the full thousand in Need For Speed Most Wanted.
  • Ice-T is the head of the SMG clan. Xzibit is also in the clan. In my mind, Xzibit makes the ghetto bird noise every time someone calls in a helicopter.
  • I spent an entire summer listening to Ice-T's The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech...Just Watch What You Say when I was in high school.

I think this obviously leads to another battleground for an Ice-T/Soulja Boy showdown. Perhaps they could go at it in this week's Xbox Live Arcade release, Duke Nukem 3D? It's a first-person shooter (which is right up LORD 187X's alley) and its new time-rewinding feature means that Soulja Boy can continue talking about how he don't never run out of that going back in time potion. The winner of that could go on to whoop Michael Phelps' ass at Call of Duty: World at War.

Hah.  I just sent him a message on Xbox telling him his gamerscore was sorry.  As for the Soulja boy BS, that dude needs to show some respect.  He's too stupid to know that the doors that are open to him, are only open because of old school rappers like Ice-T, Kool Moe, Grandmaster, Eric B., Rakim, and a host of others.  He needs a good bitch slappin'.  Then again, I'm old and I actually remember when rap was new.

People care what a washed up piece of crap ex-gangster does?

The definition of pathetic.

What is all this "yo" and "She be fine" nonsense.

I guess there really are just a bunch of kids on here.

This is so friggin cool. I got new artists to check out. I just wished whoever upoloaded this would checkbox the 2 channel sound option.  I can only hear it from my left headphone. Other then that DAAAAMMMMN!!

This reminds me of the Anual Play-a Haters Ball skit on The Chapelle Show. Everything Ice T does is fo' realz. No Bullshit !

And for the record, if you're going to listen to Ice-T make it "Power" or "O.G."

Nobody is making rap like that anymore...sadly.

"I really don't think this guy has ever gone to school". Based on...? Is the answer going to be what we think it is but what you probably won't say out loud?

Ice T is one cool ass mofo. What other rapper would get that excited about video games and even give out his gamertag?


P.S. Is CoCo his wife? I thought she was his girlfriend or something.

P.S.S. Fuck Soulja Boy

"Yeah, I'm Ice-T and I'm here to audition for the part of a cop."

Golden. "But anyway... Obama. Ask her some shit."

Cue Kevin Pereira-esque "Really?!" He expects people to divert enough sensory focus from vision to actually listen to what Koko has to say? That is just silly.

EDIT @jakob187: I call bullshit. However I could totally see George Fisher as a huge WoW dork. If not bullshit, do you play BF:BC on live? I must have your dogtags.

Wow that was actually a pretty cool interview. He seems like one of the few true rappers left. Also love his shot at soulja boy. Also loled when he started talking games. Unlike most celebrities though, he gave his gt, and said he could back it up. I wonder what prestige hes on.

That was pretty funny. 

He seemed disinterested and kind of bored when they were talking about the music scene, then he got hyped like he took a Red Bull to the taint when asked about COD4.

Oddly enough, Ice has never played Halo 3. I guess he knows that Soulja Boy's on Halo 3 as one can plainly see in his "BEST REVIEW EVAR!"

I'm surprised he gave out his tag. Poor guy is going to get message bombed. I think I did play him once and he's alright.

1000 points on King Kong...THAT is keepin' it 100.  I'll add him to my Xbox 360 at work later...and then I'll show him some REAL prestige!!!

That's a call-out, Ice-T.  I already beat Phil LaBonte from All That Remains on Halo 3...and I beat Robin Williams on Battlefield 2...and I camped Corpsegrinder on WoW...so you are next, sir!!!
