On Saturday (April 20), Ice T confirmed that the follow-up to 2017’s Bloodlust is on the way.
“New BodyCount album in progress. First two songs locked. Hard as F!! We’re going in. #Carnivore @BodyCountBand.”
HipHopDX reported that the title of the project is indeed Carnivore.

Bloodlust featured the controversial yet powerful single “No Lives Matter,” which came with a provocative video.
The album also included “Black Hoodie,” a song about police brutality.
“All these people out here tripping off police brutality like this shit is something new,” Ice says at the beginning of the “Black Hoodie” video. “Give me a fucking break – I’ve been talking about this shit for over 20 years. And now you can kill a motherfucker just because of how he’s dressed. Are you fucking serious?”
The song was ultimately nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards but lost to Mastodon’s “Sultan’s Curse.”
