Jun 14, 2012

Jimmy Fallon continued Video Game Week 2012 with Ice-T last night.

The New Jack City star sat down with Fallon to talk about his new documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, gamingand his busty gamer co-pilot Coco.

“I love that you’re here, this is video game week, this is a big week for us,” said Fallon.

“For me and you,” chimed in Ice.

“Becuase I know you’re a gamer,” xontinued Fallon.

“I love gaming.”

Fallon proved he knew his stuff asking Ice if he was still with SMG, his Xbox Live clan.

“Yeah that’s my clan, we play on Xbox Live, you know, sex money and guns. Basically when you see that clan tag just lay down, ’cause we gunna kill ya,” said the rap legend.

“Sex, money, and guns,” Fallon says to clarify.

“Yeah you know kind a like what the world revolves around,” explains Ice.

“You play Call of Duty, but Gears of War you are in,” says Fallon.

“I’m in Gears of War. I play a character named Griffin in Gears Of War. I was in Grand Theft Auto. I was the final character in that. Ive’ been in a lot of video games; Scarface, I was also in Fight for New York Def Jam. I’m a big gamer. I just got finished playing [Max Payne 3]. Coco did the promotion for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.”

“Is Coco a player as well?” Fallon asks surprised.

“Coco is like an assistant player, like when we play she’ll sit right next to me like if I’m driving she’ll be like ‘Left! Left! Left! Turbo! Turbo! Turbo! Turbo!’. ’cause there’s like a map to the side or else she’ll be with the cheatbook to the side so if I get stuck somewhere I’m like ‘Coco! I can’t get atta this room!’ and she’ll help me, but she can really game. She’ll be playing Army of Two…”

Coco got some flak from the gaming community about her role in the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier promos but Ice-T comes to her defense, saying “You know when she did the Ghost Recon promo a lot of like the [hardcore] gamers we’re like “oh why is she in there” and stuff like that, but trust me she can beat most of them cats playin’… she knows her way around the controller, trust me. ”

“She could beat me too I’m awful, I told you Call of Duty I’m just, I’m bad you gotta help me out,” Fallon confesses.

The stone cold rapper/actor hits Fallon with his brutal honesty saying, ”You’re a camper. You like to hide in the bushes and take pot shots.”

Fallon nods in agreement.

“You gotta get a small gun and go around and shoot people.” continued Ice.

“Oh I have a small gun! You heard about that?” Joked Fallon.
