In continuation of a popular hip-hop trend, ghetto kids made good Ice-T and Coolio are planning a download-only project track which will marry the King of Rock and Roll with Ol' Blue Eyes himself Frank Sinatra. In an exclusive phone interview from what Coolio describes as "Ice-T's totally phat pad" TheSpoof.com was given an idea of what the finished product will sound like.
"It's odd that me and T would be laying beats down together, but we figured our careers are pretty whack right now, so by cashing in on big names like Presley and Frank we could make a little bling on the side. What we're going to do is go back to the old master tapes and rip the vocal tracks from 'Luck Be A Lady', then the ones from 'In The Ghetto' and splice them together, mashup style."
TheSpoof.com enquired in depth about what style of track the "nu old-school" dynamic duo would be creating, but Coolio was reticent and refused to answer any specific questions about signature sounds or whether he and Ice-T would be rapping on this effort, or merely producing.
"Would be pretty banging 'cos T is scribing some great lines right now, real heavy, but he's a little vexed about trying to stack up his rhymes next to those legends."
Coolio assured us that we'd be the first to wrap our ears around the effort once he was happy with the sound. As ever, TheSpoof.com will do it's best to keep you informed. Mad props all round.
