Ice T Fires Shots At Lil Wayne, Rick Ross & Snoop Dogg, Says They’ve Ruined Hip-Hop!

Say It's Pop Music...

Ice T recently discussed the state of Hip-Hop and says it has been ruined by the likes of Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg.
The legendary rapper claims that collaborating with artists such as Rihanna and Katy Perry makes a pop track – not rap. In an interview with VH1, Ice said: “Rap is pop right now… Rap was a counterculture that went against pop. But when you have Rihanna singin’ on you records and you’re doin’ records with Katy Perry [in reference to Snoop Dogg], that’s no longer rap.”
He continued: “It’s pop music, pop music using rap delivery. When you hear Lil Wayne sayin’ ‘I got a chopper in the car,’ you go, ‘Yeah, right you do.”
Ice also addressed the controversy surrounding Rick Ross ‘stealing’ someone else’s stage name as using it himself. “That’s fake,” he said. “Rick Ross stole a n**gas name. I call him ‘Identity Crisis.’ 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 f**k are you really, dude?”
Do you agree with Ice T’s comments? Has rap gone too pop?
