Ground-breaking West coast artist Ice-T continues to pioneer the hip-hop art form by releasing his latest music on the internet.
Ice M.F.T has joined forces with MP3.com, starting with the exclusive release of the first single, "Don't Hate the Playa," from his forthcoming Coroner Records album, 7th Deadly Sin. But Ice isn't stopping there. He'll also be hosting a section of MP3.com, entitled "Ice Picks," where he'll share his personal MP3 recommendations from the Rap and Hip-Hop areas on the site and comment on new MP3.com artists in his editorials.
Lucky fans can catch him during his regularly scheduled chats and, better still, will have the opportunity to win an all-expense-paid trip to Los Angeles, to have dinner with the author of Ice Opinion, when they download his single. As Ice told MP3.com, "The Internet is the new lane for the future of music, and though the gatekeepers may not want that to happen, it's all the more reason I want to be down." Other joints to check for on MP3.com include a couple tracks by Krs-One affiliates, the Nobodies, and three new songs by The Shape Shifters.
