Ice-T Disses Rick Ross

The rapper/actor known as Ice-T has always majored in street credibility, so maybe it’s ok for him to weigh in with his opinions about MMG head Rick Ross who he calls ‘Identity Crisis.’

The veteran’s points are pretty distinct as he spilled his opinion an hour before the world premiere screening of VH1′s latest Rock Doc, ‘Planet Rock: The Story of Hip Hop and the Crack Generation,’ “He thinks he’s [Freeway] Rick Ross, he thinks he’s Larry Hoover, he thinks he’s Big Meech, he thinks he’s MC Hammer, he thinks he’s Tupac. Like, who the Fawk are you really, dude?”

The Law & Order actor is really friends with convicted drug dealer Freeway Ricky Ross so the name stealing hits home. Ice also talks about Lil Wayne and rap music going pop.

“Rap was a counterculture that went against pop. But when you have Rihanna singin’ on your records and you’re doin’ records with Katy Perry, that’s no longer rap. It’s pop music, pop using rap delivery. When you hear Lil Wayne sayin’ ‘I got a chopper in the car,’ you go, ‘Yeah, right you do.‘”
