“Body Count’s Bloodlust is timely and unforgiving. Ice-T has not missed a beat – it’s brutally honest, hard as fuck and about damn time.” – Briggs, A.B. Original
“Powerful and explosive track from one of Hip Hops OG’s! United we stand, Divided we fall. #blacklivesmatter” –K.Sera at 96.1’s Hip Hop show
