Los Angeles-based thrash metal outfit Body Count are excited to announce their first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance with their controversial yet inspirational single, “Black Hoodie,” taken from their sixth full-length album, Bloodlust, out now via Century Media Records. The 60th Grammy Awards show will air live from New York City’s Madison Square Garden on January 28, 2018.
Additionally, it has been announced that the band will perform live during The Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony (hosted by Paul Shaffer), which will take place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28, 2018, from 3–6 p.m. ET, and will be streamed live internationally via grammy.com/live and CBS.com.
With a stirring music video directed by Treach from Naughty By Nature, Ice-T‘s chilling narrative on “Black Hoodie” is further solidified with a refrain from the 1993 KRS-One hit, “Sound of Da Police.” Ice-T states: “This type of thing happens everyday and nobody marches or it never makes the news. The (music) video speaks for itself.”
“Got on a black hoodie, it’s pulled on my head,
I didn’t have a gun, so why am I dead?
You didn’t have to shoot me, and that’s a known fact
And now I’m laying face down with bullets in my back”
