Ice T sat down with VladTV and broke down exactly why he’s been offered roles as a cop throughout his acting career, saying that cops at an upper level are often as street as the criminals they’re going after, and it would be hard for a square actor to play those roles realistically.
He also feels grateful to play characters so different from himself because it gives him a chance to really act, as opposed to playing someone close to living the lifestyle he grew up in.
Hear Ice T’s explanation above.
The legendary Big Daddy Kane sat down with VladTV where he spoke on his relationship with Jay Z, saying the Brooklyn boy was introduced by mutual friend Jaz-O who asked Kane if Jay could spit on a track with him. Kane agreed and thought Jay was nice enough to take on the road, and while he was never Kane’s hypeman (as many believe), he would spit a few bars for about ten minutes while Kane changed back stage.
Kane says he and Jay still have a good relationship, with Hov bringing him out for Summer Jam and for the opening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
