This story was sent to us by staff writer Matt Jost and originally featured on TheBoombox.com. To summarize, a listener-supported non-profit radio station in Hungary named Tilos Radio reportedly received an 8-page letter on Dec. 13th cautioning them for playing the Ice-T songs 'Warning' and 'It's On' over the air back in September of 2010. Radio policy in Hungary is that songs with explicit language are not to be played before 9 PM local time but 'Warning' features an expletive-filled introduction where Ice-T states "If you are offended by words like shit, bitch, fuck, dick, asshole..." et cetera. Tilos released a statement in response to the media authority in Hungary contending that the majority of their listeners are not proficient in English, and can not comprehend the curse words used. The station also claims that only four percent of their listeners are under the age of 18, and would not have been adversely affected.

Ice-T's response? "I love it! The world still fears me." You can follow Ice-T on Twitter HERE.

Here's a classic old school Ice-T video for the hip-hop heads. "Now I'ma write this song though the radio won't play it/but I got freedom of speech so I'ma say it."
