However, the rapper has since expanded his palette and tried both food items. In a video for Coffee Meets Bagel, an online dating service, Ice-T explains why he decided to try the food and drink combo after decades without it. “The internet wanted to see this, and I’m willing to do it,” he says. “They wanted to see me drink some coffee and have a bagel … first time in my life.”
The New Jersey native kicks things off by taking a sip of coffee. “It’s not what I expected,” he begins. “It tastes like water with another taste kicked in later.”
So what’s the verdict? “This is my first time, and I can pretty much tell you this will be the last time I’ll ever drink black coffee,” he quips.
When it came time to dig into a bagel, Ice-T knew he needed to try more than one kind of the “unsweetened doughnuts,” as he calls them. Kicking things off with a plain bagel topped with cream cheese, the “New Jack Hustler” singer is surprised by the density of the bread. “It’s not bad,” he concurs after taking a nibble. “That one bite, I feel like I just ate a loaf of bread. People eat this whole thing?”
