Ice-T Slams Artists For Bragging About Riches During Struggling Economy
Ice-T is urging modern rappers to write songs that better reflect the times because they're creating a "generation of jaded youth" by rhyming about their riches.
The hip-hop icon has taken aim at today's artists for bragging about their fancy cars and extravagant lifestyles during a time when so many fans are struggling to make ends meet.
He tells the New York Post, "We've created a generation of jaded youth. Music as a whole is delusional. If you listen to pop records right now, you'll believe everybody's rollin', poppin' bottles, life is perfect.
"Life is f***ed up right now. But everyone's in a bubble that it's all good. We're all floating around like, 'I'm broke, but... hey, pop a bottle, buy some Gucci.' That's what's going on in music right now."
