[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i don't understand. why not? >> i just don't want to give them all the money. i mean, you know what i'm saying? the government gave away all this money, and then they want it from me. so i'm tight with the taxes.
i remember the first time i ever got a tax bill, when i first started making legitimate money. >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] i mean, he is ice-t, for god's -- come on. remember who this is. yeah. >> i had a record deal and, you know, my manager told me i had a tax bill. i'm like what's a tax bill. he says you owe them money. and i'm like, "all right, well, pay them." he says, "well, you want to know how much?" i'm like, "sure." he says, "are you driving?" i'm like, "yeah." he said, "stop the car." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's not a good sign. >> so, he basically told me -- he said, "you owe $97,000." [ audience ohs ] and this is when i first started off, so you don't even want to know now. it's crazy, right? so i told him, "okay, fix my bunk in prison. i'm going to jail." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you just planned on going to jail. >> i never handed over $97,000 to nobody in my life. are you kidding me, and i don't even know you? [ laughter ] so he said, "well, call me back when you calm down." and i called him back, and, basically, they wiped me out. at that time, you know, i
thought i had a little money in the bank. obviously not. wiped me out. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. i mean, well, this "law & order" should help you out a little bit. you've been on for -- >> i don't know, man. "law & order" -- the more money i make, the more money i seem to be in debt. [ laughter ] anybody understand that theory? it's weird. >> jimmy: so, if i give you $10 -- >> i end up owing somebody $20. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's not a good deal at all. >> i don't know. i just -- you know. but i'll figure it out. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. i mean, nine seasons on "law and order." >> yes, sir. >> jimmy: nine seasons. [ cheers and applause ] amazing. nine seasons -- i find it funny and cool that, nine seasons, you play -- you play a cop. >> play a cop, man. i think it's kind of cliche to take a street cat and have him act as a street cat. so they used me as a cop, and you get a street-savvy cop, which is different. you know, i played a cop in "new jack city."
that was my debut acting. and i don't have any -- [ applause ] yeah. i really got no problems with the police, honestly. you know, when i used to break the law, the police were the opponent. i just thought i was smarter than them, you know. they proved me wrong. [ laughter ] you know. but i don't have no problems with the police, you know, so to speak. >> jimmy: do you have any friends that are cops? you must. >> i don't really have friends that are cops because i don't really know when they're not cops. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's a fine line, yeah. >> it's a fine line. i got my friend officer such-and-such sitting with me. my boys show up over my house bleeding or something at any moment. you know, i don't come in the door like -- "who's he," you know. i'm like, "are you a cop right now?" so -- >> jimmy: people show up at your house bleeding? >> i got interesting friends. [ laughter ] i'm on "law & order." i'm on "law & order," not my crew, okay? >> jimmy: absolutely. >> they're still living. >> jimmy: oh, my goodness. you know what? [ laughter ] >> hey, i'm going to tell the truth. >> jimmy: absolutely. i mean, it's just something that just doesn't happen at my house. we're not playing pictionary and
somebody comes in bleeding. it's like, "hold on, i'm drawing a dog here." >> i mean, i don't -- i haven't really met a cop to make my friend yet. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> they're probably waiting on me when i come out of here. >> jimmy: you're going to -- [ laughter ] you'll have a lot of e-mails when you get home. yeah. are you on twitter? >> and what is twitter, man? i went on twitter -- [ laughter and applause ] i went on twitter two weeks ago. i filled out an account. you know, i'm doing a lot of internet stuff. i just launched a record label, you know. i did a deal with emi for my record label. it's called final level. i'm out to save hip-hop. i'm going to bring it back, you know what i'm saying? [ cheers and applause ] so everybody's like, "you got to get totally on the net. you got to put up a twitter account." so i started the twitter account. if you want to twitter me, it's twitter/final level. and first off, i found a dude on there named ice-t, and he ain't even cool. [ laughter ] there's a dude -- the dude got my name, and he got a picture of me up there from "law & order," but i'm looking
at what he's writing and it's real corny and whack. i'm like, "if you're gonna represent me, at least have some flavor, player." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, at least. come on, maybe he's just a fan of the beverage. >> no, it's me, dog. [ laughter ] it's me. so i'm looking at this and -- so i get on twitter and i'm like -- it's kind of weird, because i'm like, are people stalking me now? because i'm saying stuff, like "i'm going to the movies," and i'm like, "why did i just do that?" [ laughter ] "why did i just do that?" >> jimmy: you're telling people how to break into your house. >> and then i'm typing to people, like "what's going on on twitter?" and all the people that are following me are like, "we don't know, either." so i think it's a cult. >> jimmy: confusing -- it's a cult? >> last week, i wrote "don't drink the kool-aid." >> jimmy: wow. [ laughter ] why not? that works for me. i don't even know what that means, but -- >> don't drink the kool-aid, man. >> jimmy: and ice-t's like "drink the iced tea." [ laughter ] he loves the beverage. >> why do i -- i don't even drink much iced tea. it's got to be sweetened correctly. i'm much more of a kool-aid cat.
i love grape kool-aid, grape snapple. >> jimmy: is there a hip-hop -- is there a hip-hop guy named kool-aid? >> better not be. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it'd be kind of good. you should sign him on your label. kool-aid. >> no, that's a whack name. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he comes busting through a brick wall or something, like -- >> i mean, nowadays, they might have a kool-aid rapper, i don't know. but, no you know, i come from the days when you had to have a cool name. you had to be ice cube or chuck d. or big daddy kane or somebody. you know. >> jimmy: yeah. >> you can't be kool-aid. that ain't cool. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i think kool-aid's good. it comes in different flavors. >> probably is a rapper out there now, kool-aid, right now, twittering me. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i did read on something that your son, little ice -- >> yes sir. >> jimmy: is on spring break. >> yeah. little ice, man, i don't know. i mean, lot of people -- i've been in the public eye for a while, so a lot of people actually remember little ice when he was born. now he's 17 years old. it's cold, man. i'm looking at this dude like, "how the hell are you as tall as me?"
he's 17 -- >> jimmy: crazy. >> but he came out here to kick with me in new york. he lives in l.a., and he just changed his swagger. he was a sneaker kid. now i just got him a car. it was time for him to get a car. we made an agreement. he stood up to the agreement. i copped him a car. and now he ain't into clothes no more. he needs car parts. >> jimmy: he's into car parts. that's more expensive. >> yeah, yeah, different things. >> jimmy: that changes your whole life. >> it's cool, though. it's cool. >> jimmy: but -- and i met cocoa backstage. beautiful. she's gorgeous.
