Body Count - Manslaughter Cover

It's not big, it's not clever, but we listen to the new Body Count album WAY more than we should.

It’s been nigh-on 24 years of mosh for rap legend Ice-T and his band, but are we any closer to taking them 100 per cent seriously? Their fifth album, ‘Manslaughter’ is definitely smattered with its own very special variety of stand-out moments, including lyrics like “Eat a dick” and other masterful, mothereffin’ hip-hop blasts. Diversifying the mix even further is a decidedly 21st century take on Suicidal Tendencies’ classic, ‘Institutionalized’ that will evoke as many chuckles as headbangs, while a cover of Jay-Z’s ‘99 Problems’ makes Linkin Park’s mash-up sound like a nursery rhyme. Pure metal it ain’t. Pure fun, it sure is.
