Posted by on July 3 at 12:24 PM

No… NO… NO!!! I mean, yes… Yes… YES!!
From Ananova:

Ice-T is to produce David Hasselhoff’s first hip-hop album. The pair are neighbours in Los Angeles and are said to have struck up a close friendship. Hasselhoff has had some success as a singer, releasing seven albums. He’s also said to be very popular in Germany. Ice-T, who was one of the first real hip-hop stars in the late 1980s, said: “The man is a legend. And we are going to show a whole new side of him.” The rapper is said to be convinced that the 51-year-old for Knight Rider and Baywatch actor can take on the biggest names in rap, reports The Sun. Ice-T added: “He’s gonna come out as Hassle The Hoff - I promise you. The Hoff will surprise people with his rap skills and humour.”

Giggity giggity goo.

Wasn't this supposed to happen a couple years ago?

Wikipedia to the rescue!

In early 2005, it was reported that Hasselhoff had teamed with rapper Ice-T and was planning to record a rap album under the handle of Hassel the Hoff[2]. As of the end of 2005, the recording had not been released. In fact, Ice-T went on Late Night with Conan O'Brien to confirm that he was not involved in any such project. In June 2006 Hasselhoff confirmed that the project was a "prefabrication" on The Kevin and Bean Show on KROQ, Los Angeles.
