Ice-T

"That's part of the game. Bootlegging is not gonna stop your record sales. People that

want your record are gonna buy the real thing. I've never bought a bootleg and then

didn't buy the album itself. To me, they're promotion. I don't see a problem with it. A lot of

artists that just can't sell records are like, 'Ah, yea, they bootleg me.' But you know, the

records that get bootlegged are the hot records anyway. It doesn't slow you up

that much. I don't spend a lot of time delegating myself to problems like that -- It

comes with the terrain." -- Ice-T, rapper
