Ice T of Bodycount performs during Download Festival at Donington Park on June 10, 2018 in Castle Donington, England. 

Ice-T is promoting mask-wearing as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rapidly spread, and is using his father-in-law as an example.

The rapper took to Twitter on Monday (Nov. 30) to share a photo of his father-in-law hooked up to an ventilator in the hospital, noting that he used to be a "serious 'No-Masker.'"

"COVID hit him. Pneumonia in both lungs.. 40 days in ICU close to death.." he continued. "Now he’s on Oxygen indefinitely. Ohhh he’s a Believer now.. #COVIDisNotAGame."

Ice-T followed up by replying to a fan who insisted that "some of us gotta learn the hard way," writing, "Some people think a Mask is a sign of weakness.. My homie @BrotherMob who had it, told me.. 'Ice, your Gangster can’t fight this s---…..' I heard him loud and clear!"

"Honestly.. A lot of no maskers only do it because they’re listening to the President.. Just sayin," he replied to another fan, before adding, "I would NEVER wish ANYONE sickness… I don’t need that Karma."
