Ice-T warns artists against appearing on podcasts

Rapper Ice-T has revealed that he’s not keen on podcasts, and especially the frequency with which hip-hop artists are on them.

The Body Count frontman took to Twitter on Friday (May 12th), and warned younger rappers against appearing on podcasts and letting their answers be twisted into something far removed from what they actually said.

“Artist Public Service: Doing Interviews can be risky if you Don’t know what you’re doing,” he wrote. “They will talk to you for hours hoping you say one thing they can TWIST and hype up for clicks. Unfortunately, most podcasts have now DEVOLVED to this BS. Just saying.”

As well as finding success in music, Ice-T has branched out into acting, with his most memorable role coming as Detective Odafin Tutuola on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in February for his additions to culture.

“Ice-T is a cultural icon and a success both in the music and television industries. His fans will be very excited to see their favorite performer placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, explained in a statement.

“Ice’s Star will be situated near the stars of music greats such as Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Luciano Pavarotti, Mama Cass Elliott, John Denver, and Herbie Hancock, to name a few,” Martinez added.
