Audible has roped in rapper/actor Ice-T to lend his voice for the audiobook version of Dungeons & Dragons. The pairing can be considered the most unlikely considering the rapper’s illustrious career that includes his association with heavy metal band and electrifying on-stage performances. Even the rapper wasn’t aware what he was being made to do and he admitted it to being quite tough to record an audiobook, more so it is about ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ (pun intended).
“When you read these books, you make up the pronunciation in your head,” he says. “But to actually verbally say this words? Son. Son,” said Ice-T who also admitted it took more than 3 hours at one time to record a 25 page section. Overall, it took two days to record the entire novel comprising of 40 pages which he had earlier estimated to take not more than 4 hours.
“Pegasus….Pegasi. That’s horses with wings. This shit is crazy.”
“This [expletive] got a sword that talks to him. And shit.”
“[Expletive] live in places that don’t exist.”
Looks like Ice-T had really fun time recording the audiobook.
