ICE-T's BODY COUNT Releases Animated Video For 'The Ski Mask Way'

BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by hip-hop legend, actor and director Ice-T, has partnered with renowned graphic artist Tommy Ruffin to create a new animated, violent music video for "The Ski Mask Way". The song is featured on BODY COUNT's latest album, "Bloodlust", which was released on March 31 via Century Media Records.

Ice-T stated about the track: "I was noticing people on the streets showing off their expensive jewelry and money on social media. They are just making themselves a target for the robbers out there just watching their Instagram to see what they are flaunting. In L.A., they call Instagram 'Jacker's Uber,' seeing what clubs people are at and livestream the robbers to their front door."

"Bloodlust" was recorded with producer Will Putney (MISS MAY I, UPON A BURNING BODY), who also helmed 2014's "Manslaughter". The new CD features guest appearances by Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA), MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe. The effort also contains BODY COUNT's medley of the SLAYER songs "Postmortem" and "Raining Blood".

Ice-T recently told Revolver magazine about the "Bloodlust" album title: "Bloodlust is part of the human makeup. Murder is about as normal as love. It's in our nature to want to get violent and kill, but we know there are consequences. That's why we like violent movies, video games and combat sports. It's in our DNA. It's what we are."
