Ice-T Recruits Kanye West, Eminem and More for Documentary
Ice-T is one busy man. Him and his wife Coco, who recently renewed their vows, are gearing up to star in their reality show, "Ice Loves Coco: Baby Got Backstory" on E!, debuting June 12. When talking to Billboard.com's The Juice on their reality show and his upcoming projects, Ice-T revealed details on his directorial debut, "The Art of Rap." "I've interviewed 50 emcees - everybody - [from] Kanye West, Ice Cube, Eminem to Melle Mell, Grandmaster Caz."
"The hip-hop scene [has] became so pop." Ice-T continues. "I was like, 'I'm gonna do a movie about real rappers and what inspired us.' Maybe that'll hit a reset button on the game and let these kids know it's not just about a pop record. Rap can do a lot."
Earlier today (June 6), The Escapist announced that Ice-T and his group Body Count will be reuniting to create a song for Microsfot E3's video game, 'Gears of War 3.' During the Microsoft E3 2011 press conference, Ice-T joined Epic Games' design director, Cliff Bleszinski, to demo a new campaign level of 'Gears 3.'
Ice-T premiered a teaser to "The Art of Rap" back in February. Check it out below.
