Ice-T rapped on a punk version of 'Turn Down for What'

Posted on

Ice T

In case DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s original version of “Turn Down for What” wasn’t enough, there’s now a punk version of the 2013 song—and it features Ice-T.

The track appears on Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6, the sixth in a series of albums where punk bands cover radio hits like Lorde’s “Royals” and Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” But Upon a Burning Body, the band who covers “Turn Down for What” on the album, is more metal than punk—and Ice-T’s aggressive rapping fits in nicely with the band’s throaty yells.

The video includes lots of pole dancing and Ice-T flipping the bird, so if you’re not into that, you can buy the audio version on iTunes now.
