New Jacks Take Heed…Ice-T Is Still Hustling O.G. Bars (Video)
Before he began his unprecedented 21-year run on Law Order: Special Victims Unit, Ice-T cemented a spot as a Gangsta Rap pioneer more than 30 years ago. Without question, Ice-T is an O.G. in the game. However, with longstanding TV roles, reality shows, and car insurance commercials, it can be easy to forget that Ice-T is one cold MC, even if it’s not always rhymes that pay.
On the newly-released “Feds In My Rearview” (from The Foundation compilation) Ice proves that he hasn’t lost a step with his first solo Rap release in over a decade. Ice spits a descriptive narrative about the kind of paranoia that can only come from being pursued by the law. Not veering from his modus operandi, he brings the hard-hitting lyrics with the signature voice and flow that made him famous. When it comes to spitting game about street maneuvers, women, cars, and the life of hustler, Ice-T is in a class by himself.
In the video, Ice-T exits his real-life crib with a chip on his shoulder. He spits hard bars to an East Coast beat. He spits about pinched partners and living a lavish lifestyle. Meanwhile, stock footage decorates the videos with flashbacks to the wild life.
“Feds In My Rearview” is the first visual released from The Foundation album, which features some legendary MCs, including Esham, Kool Keith (who dropped the Psycho Les-produced KEITH the same day), Raw Breed, Sadat X, Smoothe The Hustler, Tash (from the Alkaholiks), Trigger Da Gambler, Ultramagnetic MC’s, and of course, Ice-T.
