Body Count the metal band with rapper, Ice-T as frontman released a new track called, “Bum Rush” which is an adrenaline-pumped track that moves fast. Ice-T leads the way, fueled with empowered rage and is accompanied with a full backdrop of talented guitarists and a drummer who power through the track. The video shows the crew pushing out security and taking over a news station, which lends to the theme of the song. With lyrics like, “I’m not your enemy, you’re not mine. All together unstoppable. Some may say impossible. I believe, see the crowd. Feel the power, hear the sound, we don’t sleep no more, we’re woke. Hear us coming, see the smoke. You can’t stop the bum-rush.” Body Count are releasing their seventh album Carnivore on March 6 via Century Media.
Ice-T briefly described the track as “another fast moving Body Count track continuing my attempt to wake people up.” The video was directed by Jay Rodriguez.
