Oh, that’s cold! Ice T isn’t one to mince his words, and on Thursday, Sept. 17, he shared exactly what he thought of Kanye West’s New York Fashion Week designs.

The Law & Order SVU star, 57, who is expecting a baby girl with wife Coco Austin, took to Twitter to offer his opinion to his 500,000-plus followers. 

“Kanye’s fashion show stuff looks like future slave gear to me… Just sayin,” the rapper-turned actor tweeted along with a composite photo of models in Kanye’s gear.

"I'm not POP… so I speak freely," he continued in another tweet. When a follower asked him for his thoughts on "POP," the artist replied, "It's manufactured.. Lacks heart and soul." Oof!

The “Fade” rapper, 38, debuted his Yeezy Season 2 collection in a last-minute show on Wednesday. His runway featured an “army” of models in beige leggings and leotards, oversized and baggy tops, and military-inspired utility jackets.

Ice T isn’t the only one who seems less than impressed with the self-proclaimed 2020 presidential candidate’s latest designs. Renowned fashion critic Cathy Horyn published her critique of the rapper’s sophomore collection in New York Magazine’s The Cut on Thursday. “This second round of drab, broken-down basics proved he can’t be taken seriously as a designer,” she wrote. “But nevertheless many people in fashion do seem to take West seriously … and that makes them fools.”
