The Hoff

I'm a sucker for bad white rappers, but I think this may very well have crossed the line. Just one step too far. Then why am I so intrigued?

From Ananova.com:

Ice-T to Produce Hasselhoff Rap Album
Ice-T is to produce David Hasselhoff's first hip-hop album.

The pair are neighbours in Los Angeles and are said to have struck up a close friendship.

Hasselhoff has had some success as a singer, releasing seven albums. He's also said to be very popular in Germany.

Ice-T, who was one of the first real hip-hop stars in the late 1980s, said: "The man is a legend. And we are going to show a whole new side of him."

The rapper is said to be convinced that the 51-year-old for Knight Rider and Baywatch actor can take on the biggest names in rap, reports The Sun.

Ice-T added: "He's gonna come out as Hassle The Hoff -- I promise you. The Hoff will surprise people with his rap skills and humour."

OK, this is totally weird because not only did happen upon this delightful tidbit on my own last night, but I sent it to a few friends with the subject line, "Sign of the apocalypse?"
