Who is the bigger sell-out, Ice-T or Ice Cube?
Ice Cube for sure. Ice-T is still 'cool' on Law and Order SVU. Ice Cube's movies are un-watchable for anyone above the age of 6.
you and I already had this discussion. They're both sell outs, but it's obviously Ice Cube. He's gone on to family friendly stuff, while Ice T is still "hard" on Law & Order SVU... plus Coco, nuff said.
Ice Cube was in Are We There Yet?
(lol just kidding... keep discussing)
Ice Cube....for that horrendous XXX sequel....
I agree with you guys. I mean, Ice Cube really didn't fall that far, he didn't have the gangsta background. He was in NWA, but not as hardcore as Ice-T. He started off in Boyz n the Hood and Friday, and is now taking nut shots from toddlers in Disney movies.
On the other hand, Ice-T was a drug dealer, pimp, bank robber. The SVU character really isn't too big of a stretch (although the reality show is kinda lame). He may have changed the most from who he originally was, but he hasn't lost all street cred or anything, like Cube.
There's snakes out there this Big?!?!?!?!
I know, I know. I just have watched a lot of SVU lately, and keep thinking how much of a change it is from his original self to doing TV shows and voicing video games - but he's still kept his dignity.
And he doesn't have a series of commercials chronicling his epic feud with a can of Coors Light.
Ice-T wrote a song called "Cop Killer", and is now a cop on TV...
I forgot about those, just because we try to DVR everything and fast forward. Ugh.
Dre has sort of sold out in commercials, but I don't know that it's as egregious. He also really didn't start that "hard."
They're artists. Neither has sold out because it's what they're expected to do.
I can't remember which album my parents confiscated more times: The Iceberg or AmeiKKKa's Most Wanted.
I got into rap just a little after each of those came out, around my freshman year in HS, about the time The Chronic and, later, Doggystyle came out. My parents straight-up banned MTV from our house due to those videos.
The good old days, when MTV actually played music television. I do miss Fab Five Freddy and Yo! MTV Raps!
My parents never banned MTV but once The Real World took over, I banned MTV myself.
That show was EVERYWHERE. I watched a couple of seasons (whatever season had Pedro and Puck), but that was it. I blame that show for the birth of all of the "let's force these people to live in the same house" reality shows.
Ice-t went from talking about killing cops to playing one on T.V. this is a no brainer.
Ice Cube shills for Coors Light - I can't think of any mass market endorsements the OG Ice-T has done.
