Ice T sounds off in a great interview about his new metal album, males who act like pussies and annoying vegans. Check this out Clashers, and share with parents of young boys.
What’s the lyrical agenda on Manslaughter? You declare that “manhood’s dead” …
I think right now you’re dealing with the pussyfication of the male sex. Men are just being so passive, not standing for something; they’re very politically correct. This has nothing to do with the gay male. The gay male is gay and I have no problem with that. Men are just soft. It’s OK to say you want to be a woman, but try to be a man and there’s something wrong with that.
Are women toughening up as a result?
Well, women want the position. One of my buddies told me, “For you to be a man, a bitch has definitely taken a position.” If you’re with your girl and you’re like, “Where should we park? I don’t know …”, she’ll be like, “Park here!”
So the weakness of men has allowed women to grow stronger?
Not necessarily. They were going to grow stronger anyway because women want power. But at the same time they’ve made men feel very uncomfortable about speaking about their feelings.
There’s an updated version of your song 99 Problems, famously recorded by Jay-Z, on the new album. What did you think of the Jay-Z/Solange elevator incident?
If a guy had hit her, he’d be done. The scariest thing is that there’s cameras on elevators now, so it’s become a national dispute.
Institutionalized 2014 (6) is funny. In the last bit of the track, you fantasise about shooting an annoying vegetarian with pellets of pulled pork.
Yeah, well I’m trying to eat a fuckin’ ham sandwich and he’s telling me the pork is going to kill me and I’m like, the only way the pork is going to kill me is if you figure a way to shoot it out of a gun.
