This reads like an Onion article, but PasteMagazine.com is reporting that legendary gangsta rapper and Law & Order star Ice T has recorded the audiobook adaptation of a Dungeons & Dragons tie-in novel.

The article basically implies that Ice T had no idea what he was getting into until it was way too late.

"They didn't tell me this was a motherfuckin' Dungeons & Dragons book," Ice says, explaining to partner Mick Benzo that D&D is "some of the most crazy, deep, deep nerd shit."

Apparently the fantasy elements of the script gave Ice T some trouble in the recording studio:

"Motherfuckers talk like Yoda," Ice T marvels.

The biggest news to me is that Ice T is apparently part of a metal band right now (?!?!?!?!).

I have to say, I agree 100% with Ice T in the article's closing quote:

"Considering the way music is right now, you're better off listening to a book," he opines. "Honestly, it's more entertaining."
