Ice-T eventually chose to remove the song from the album, Ice-T states that "I knew we didn't want to form an R&B group.
[...] Where am I gonna get the rage and the anger to attack something with that? The name alone negates the band from being R&B." Ice-T co-wrote the band's music and lyrics with lead guitarist Ernie C, and took on the duties of lead vocalist.
Body Count is the eponymous debut studio album by American crossover thrash band Body Count, released on March 10, 1992 by Sire Records.
The album's material focuses on various social and political issues ranging from police brutality to drug abuse.
The final voice on the track is Ice-T confirming his identity.
In the lyrics of "KKK Bitch," Ice-T describes a sexual encounter with a woman who he soon learns is the daughter of the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
You say the word rock, people say, 'Oh, but I like Jefferson Airplane, I like Fleetwood Mac — that's rock.' They don't want to use the word rock & roll to describe this song." Ernie C stated that "A lot of rappers want to be in a rock band, but it has to be done sincerely.
This can be a very funny record." Greg Kot, writing in the Chicago Tribune, felt the lyrics on some songs are pathologically flawed and off-putting, but the band's take on metal styles is impressive and, "on the stereotype-bashing 'There Goes the Neighborhood,' the humor, message and music coalesce brilliantly".
[...] [We] really loved the music we were doing, and it showed." Like Ice-T's gangsta rap albums, Body Count's material focused on various social and political issues, with songs focusing on topics ranging from police brutality to drug abuse.
According to Ernie C, "Everybody writes about whatever they learned growing up, and we were no exception.
According to Ice-T, "We named the group Body Count because every Sunday night in L.
A., I'd watch the news, and the newscasters would tally up the youths killed in gang homicides that week and then just segue to sports. '" Ice-T introduced the band at Lollapalooza in 1991, devoting half of his set to his hip hop songs, and half to Body Count songs, increasing his appeal with both alternative rock fans and middle-class teenagers. The song "Body Count" was preceded by a staged interview in which the performer referred to the group as a "black hardcore band," stating that "as far as I'm concerned, music is music.
But where rap's core audience is presumably in the inner city, hard-core appeals mostly to suburbanites seeking more gritty thrills than they can get from Nintendo or the local mall." Ice-T felt that politicians had intentionally referred to the song "Cop Killer" as rap to provoke negative criticism.
