‘Talk S—, Get Shot’: Ice-T Talks Lyrics and Gun Control [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]
Any artist with a song called ‘Talk S—, Get Shot’ is a target for backlash, especially in a society fighting for gun control. Ice-T is no different. While the title may offend some, the hip-hop veteran ensures the track is pure fantasy.
The rapper, with his thrash metal band Body Count, released the hater-threatening track as the lead single of their new album, ‘Manslaughter.’ Lyrics like “get your wig split” and “don’t test me, I’m a psycho with the rifle,” aren’t for the timid. He’s murdering the critics on wax, but in reality, Ice is just giving people a reminder to back up their words when a confrontation strikes.
Watch the entertainer open up to The Boombox about the premise of ‘Talk S—, Get Shot,’ gun control and question why kids’ hearts “grow cold” before school shootings take place.
