Ice T previews the new Body Count album on The Final Level Podcast

Body Count's latest album, Bloodlust, is set to drop later this month, but Ice T gave fans a special preview of the entire album on a brand new episode of his Final Level podcast.

Body Count first announced that they were working on their sixth studio album last summer. Ice T previewed the first track off of the upcoming album, "No Lives Matter," through his Twitter account, and now he's giving fans a taste of every track on Bloodlust via his popular Final Level Podcast, which he co-hosts alongside Mick Benzo of Sirius' Zulu Beatz fame.

"I can't play the whole song cause the record label would lose their mind," Ice T joked. "But I convinced them to let me tease every song on this record and explain the story behind each song." On the special episode of the podcast, Ice T goes through the new album track by track, offering behind the scenes info and stories about the production of the album. Needless to say, it's a must listen for any fans of Ice T, Body Count, or heavy metal and rap.

Body Count debuted in 1991, making their first recorded appearance on Ice T's O.G. Original Gangster album. The group made a name for itself the following year with their self-titled debut album, which included the popular but controversial single "Cop Killer." The group's most recent album, Manslaughter, was released in 2014 and received positive reviews from most critics.

Ice T also teased that he would like to go on tour with Body Count this year to promote the new album, but warned fans that he'd only be able to stop in their cities if album sales justified it. You can pre-order Bloodlust via the official Body Count website here. In addition to the album, a number of special edition packages and merchandise are also available, which include t-shirts and albums signed by Ice T himself.
