HASSELHOFF AND ICE-T: NO RAP
When the news of David Hasselhoff's recent DUI hit, the rumors of his collaboration with Ice-T on a rap album also bubbled back to the surface.

The horror, the horror.

But we can all breathe easy again: During his appearance on last Friday's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", Ice-T officially debunked the story. Apparently, a newspaper reporter posed the hypothetical question to Ice as to whether or not he could make a rapper out of even the likes of David Hasseloff; Ice said something to the effect of, "sure, for about $5 million, call him 'Hassel The Hoff'", and it took on a life of its own from there. Turns out there's no basis in reality for it.

I know it was all hypothetical, but personally, I think "Knight Rapper" would have worked better than "Hassel The Hoff".
