Five minutes alone with Body Count's Ice-T

The hip hop legend and Body Count frontman waxes lyrical on metal, politics and the Black Lives Matter movement

BLOODLUST IS MORE POLITICAL THAN THE LAST BODY COUNT ALBUM. WAS THAT INTENTIONAL?

“When I make records, whatever’s going on around me dictates what I’m writing about. This album was written last year during an election so all these political things were in my face. The title of Bloodlust came from hearing people arguing over relative levels of violence. Is the United States more violent than Germany? Or the UK? The fact is that humans are a violent species. We all have this bloodlust. We all show it in different ways, but everyone’s guilty.”
