ICE-T JEALOUS OF WILL SMITH'S SUCCESS

Recommended Posts

Hip-hop star ICE-T found acting inspiration in the unlikely form of WILL SMITH - simply because he was jealous of the Oscar nominee's million dollar success. The rapper-turned-actor, who stars in LAW AND ORDER: SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS UNIT, confesses he was spurred on to concentrate on his acting career after learning Smith could command huge fees for film appearances. Ice-T, real name TRACY MARROW, tells AllHipHop.com, "I wanted to really focus on my acting because that's a great opportunity and I really wasn't taking it serious. "I was just doing movies here and there but I was like 'Will Smith is getting $20 million every movie, I really need to focus on my acting and step it up.'"

David Hasselhof?

Anyway, funny stuff.

You're all about Baywatch today aint cha? :lol:

But anyway, I find it funny that Ice T is being what he acted like on Chappelle Show... a Playa Hater. I really didn't see the article as a jealousy statement. It was more of an inspiration. "hey, this guy is making this much money doing this, and I could very well too if I put forth the effort." Either way, let's see if he really steps it up.

Sure Ice-T's jealous of Will's success when his new album only sells 700 copies in his first week sales despite having a show on VH1, I could see why

I don't think "jealous" waz the word 2 use in the title of this post. FP and Ice-T are good friends...it would be silly 2 put them against each other. I don't think Ice-T should really expect 2 have the same kinda success tho.' His and FP's careers are very different. FP started off with the straight East Coast Hip-Hop laced with comedy which made him accessable 2 a mainstream audience. His clean cut image and more accept subject matter helped his fame and success move him 2 the next level. Ice-T came out with the gang-heavy West Coast hardcore Hip-Hop sound filled with cussing and gritty street stories. U can't navigate the same kinda career as someone totally different. I think Ice-T is a great talent and one of the smartest emcees ever...but he hasn't always made the best choices and alot of his original fans have sold him out.

you're half right AJ, but I would call it "Respect" he understands what Will has done and says if he can do it, I can give it a shot.
