Ice T is one of the iconic veterans of hip-hop, still making waves in the game in 2012. He's celebrated nationwide as one of the original lyrical geniuses, while also crossing over into the world of acting.
So let's just say the guy's got some clout when it comes to pop culture - and he's got issues with the way some women are portraying themselves on the small screen.
T recently sat down with Atlanta's HOT 107.9 and discussed why Coco is the perfect wife, as well as what he dislikes about the Basketball Wives.
Ice T goes off the Basketball Wives:
"I think its wrong to promote that when you’re successful that its a bunch of drama and pain. I’m looking at these housewife shows and these broads are mad. I’m like ‘B-tch! You in a mansion. How could you be mad?’ That’s disrespectful to people that have it bad and are struggling.”
He speaks candidly on what Coco, his wife, has to offer:
"I’m much more of a Bonnie and Clyde dude…When I seen Coco, I was like ‘damn, this is the caliber of female I’m looking at. Now, I didn’t care if she was black, white, [it] doesn’t really matter to me. When I got at her, she was just what I was looking for. I was watching ‘The Osbournes’, I’m like ‘would Ozzy even have a house if it wasn’t for Sharon Osbourne? She holds it down’. So Coco came in and became my assistant, helped me get my life together…since I been with her, I’ve tripled my income. You gon’ keep a woman that helps you make money. So we’ve been together now 11 years. It’s been beautiful. And I live by the rule: “One down b-tch equals ten funky hoes."
Over the past two years, Ice-T has made it clear he's not a fan of the Basketball Wives, infamously calling them "Basketball Dumped Hoes" in 2011. Nothing has changed, but we are glad to see he is still all in love with his gorgeous wife Coco!
