Hard-core rapper Ice-T is grooming a new rapper, one that he says will astonish the rap world with his skills David Hasselhoff.
Ice-T recently revealed that he and Hasselhoff, star of 80s action television show Knight Rider and the worldwide hit Bay Watch are working on a rap album.
After striking up a friendship in Los Angeles due to the proximity of their residences, Ice-T agreed to produce Hasselhoff, who will reemerge as emcee "Hassel The Hoff."
"The man is a legend and we are going to show a whole new side of him," Ice-T told UK newspaper The Sun.
Hasselhoff, 51, is more than just a television actor. He is also a mega-star in Austria and Germany. He has released seven albums and the most recent, My America, went as high as #11 on the Austrian charts.
"The Hoff will surprise people with his rap skills and humor," Ice-T said.
Hip-Hop has had an unofficial relationship with David Hasselhoff for numerous years. The theme music to Knight Rider has been sampled by various rappers over the years

I'm not even kidding. This is just absolutely hysterical, and this man is nuts. He's always cracked me up, and I thought he was great in Night Rider and Baywatch. Not big on his music as it is, but rap? And David Hasselhoff? Much less with the name Hassel the Hoff???????
