Legendary gangsta, Ice-T, previously spoke his mind during Sway in the Morning on Shade 45.
Ice talked about his definition of a MC and rapper and the difference between the two. Ice explained that, back in the day, MC’s were the people who could “move the crowd,” and dropped KRS-One as an example, while the rappers just rhymed about the MC and “how great the MC was.”
Ice T emphasizes that you have to “put your time in, know your history” and makes an analogy comparing Hip Hop to Jordan’s.
Watch the interview below and comment on your definition of an MC and/or a rapper.
