Ice-T has never been shy when faced with controversy. Now, a radio station in Budapest, Hungary is being investigated after playing “It’s On,” by the emcee-turned-actor who once crafted the now infamous “Cop Killer.” According to reports by Associated Press, Tilos Radio received an eight-page letter on December 13, 2010 and the ordeal has been plugged, “Ice-T Gate.”
Tilos responded by releasing a letter with Ice-T’s lyrics in English and Hungarian. They also claim that listeners in Budapest cannot understand or decode the meaning of slang terms Ice-T utilizes on the track. Furthermore, Tilos released data that informs people that most of its listeners are above the age of 18.
Ice-T, who originally released the cut on 1993’s Home Invasion, has since responded to this news with some laughter, on his Twitter account.
Currently, Hungary is facing some added attention for this new law, one that has many rallying against it. The new law allows the state to monitor private news outlets and provide harsher penalties on what AP calls “broadly defined grounds.”
