Gangsta rap hero Ice T is still astounded at how his meteoric career has turned out so successfully.

The BODY COUNT legend, one of the most influential men in hip-hop, is currently touring Europe and admits he's still taken aback at how successful he's been.

He says, "I was just telling my guys, every time I come over this water, I look at the map and I see Berlin and Moscow and all the places I have played, and I think, I actually come over here to rap.

"To rap! To say rhymes. This kid s*** that we made up. Y'know, it's amazing.

"Did I ever think I would be doing this? No. Never. Not in a million years."
