Ice-T thinks pop stars of today are 'delusional'.

The musician released a string of records throughout the 80s and 90s, including Rhyme Pays and Power.

He believes the newest cohort of chart-topping stars mistake what's important in life. Ice-T doesn't believe the message they are sending to fans is a positive one.

'We've created a generation of jaded youth,' he told the New York post at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.

'Music as a whole is delusional. If you listen to pop records right now, you'll believe everybody's rollin', poppin' bottles, life is perfect. Life is f**ked up right now! But everyone's in a bubble that it's all good. We're all floating around like, 'I'm broke, but. hey, pop a bottle, buy some Guuu-cci.' That's what's going on in music right now.'

Ice-T directed Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, which premiered at movie event. The documentary is about the infamous rap industry.

The 53-year-old actor has joked his life is very different now.

'My son's 20, he got picked up from the hospital in a Rolls. I'm looking for a 19-year-old Public Enemy. or NWA. it's gonna take nuts,' he explained.

'I'm too old - the kids won't listen to me.'

Ice-T put his musical talents to good use at the annual event. He performed with Chuck D and Grandmaster Caz at the ASCAP Music Cafe.
