Watch Body Count’s Violent New ‘The Ski Mask Way’ Video

‘Bloodlust’ clip inspired by ‘Grand Theft Auto’ video games

A masked kingpin steals, robs and kills his way to fortune in Ice-T and Body Count’s graphic, video game-inspired video for “The Ski Mask Way,” a track off the heavy metal outfit’s new LP, Bloodlust.

The Tommy the Animator-created video was inspired by realistic and violent crime video games like the Grand Theft Auto series. The video follows the ski mask-wearing hoodlum and his gang as they empty the pockets of drug dealers, crime lords and anyone who’s flashy about their wealth on social media.

“You can’t escape me, if I want what you got/ You can’t evade me, no chance to call the cops/ I’m doing my job, this is just what I do/ You make money, I come and visit you,” Ice-T warns on the track. “I gotta get paid/ The Ski Mask Way.”

“The Ski Mask Way” follows Body Count’s similarly violent video for “Black Hoodie,” another track off their sixth album Bloodlust, which arrived in late March.
