      Even though Ice-T is now more known for his acting than his rapping career, he’s still an O.G. and a bunch of 7th and 8th graders are getting firsthand rapping lessons in the new VH1 series, “Ice-T’s Rap School.”

      The difference is that these kids go to Manhattan’s upscale York Prep and don’t know much about the foundation of hip-hop and the culture it was created in. Ice will also teach them how to rhyme, timing, scratching and b-boying (break dancing). The kids will then record their songs, take a final exam on what they learned and audition to open up for Public Enemy at B.B. King’s in New York.

      A sneak preview of the show will air on Tuesday October 17 after the 3rd Annual VH1 Hip-Hop Honors, which is also hosted by Ice-T. On Friday October 20, “Ice-T’s Rap School” will premiere with two back-to-back episodes.

    as an artist this fuckin pisses me off. You dont take preps and turn them into pop rappers who suck…you should be looking at the underground for some real talent…wonder how much money Ice-T is making off this, fuckin broke ass old greedy bastard
