Ice Cube’s Response to Special Ed’s Claim: Did N.W.A Really Bring Violence & Drugs to Hip-Hop?

In a recent debate on the popular podcast Drink Champs, veteran Brooklyn rapper Special Ed made a bold statement, asserting that N.W.A. was responsible for bringing violence and drug-related themes into the world of Hip-Hop.

Ed didn’t mince words, stating, “N.W.A. brought the age of destruction to our children and our culture,” said Ed on Drink Champs. “I respect all of them as men, but as the art form … that’s where it started. That’s where the agenda started, and that’s where the destruction began.”

While none of the N.W.A. members initially responded to Special Ed’s claims publicly, it wasn’t long before the hip-hop community began debating the topic online. And that’s when Ice Cube, one of the founding members of N.W.A., decided to weigh in.

In true Ice Cube fashion, he didn’t hold back. “Bullsht. Crack was in the neighborhoods a decade before gangsta rap. In the 70s, they called it freebase,” he tweeted. “So was heroin, weed, Mollys, gangbanging, drive-bys, pimping and hoing, dropping out of school, young girls getting pregnant, cussing, and using the word Nigga. It was all here before N.W.A.”

Cube went on to shift the blame elsewhere, asking, “With no gangster rap around, who inspired the mafia that made Francis Ford Coppola create a movie like The Godfather (which is a period piece)? Who has the power to mainstream anything? Three generations? Who messed up the ten generations before gangsta rap? Society has always been ugly, sir. And when you’re ugly, you can’t blame the mirror.”

This is him now, feel old yet?” It was a typical Musk move to grab something from the depths of the internet and toss it onto his platform. However, the joke didn’t land as expected; in fact, it hardly got a chuckle from anyone.

2Pac's Sister Is Suing Tom Whalley For Embezzlement

2pac Reportedly Wanted To Go After Common Amidst Ice Cube Beef

Back in the mid-90s, amidst the fiery rap feud between Common and Ice Cube, an unexpected name reportedly desired to step in – none other than the legendary 2Pac. The revelation surfaces courtesy of Napoleon, an ex-member of Outlawz and a close associate of the enigmatic rapper. During a candid conversation with The Art Of Dialogue, Napoleon unveils an untold chapter of the overlooked Common vs Ice Cube rivalry, shedding light on 2Pac’s contemplations.

“I remember when the East Coast-West Coast thing was heating up, I think Common and Cube was going through their beef, like they were dissing each other,” Napoleon said. “I remember ‘Pac was like, ‘See, if I was cool with Cube right now, I’d be going after Common for him, but now I’m staying out of it.’”

Curiously, the only factor that seemed to deter 2Pac from jumping into the fray was a lingering discord he shared with Cube during that period. Despite this, Napoleon asserts that 2Pac held a profound respect for Cube. Napoleon concludes with a reflective note, expressing gratitude that 2Pac refrained from targeting Common, surmising that the two would have forged a unique connection.

Recent weeks have witnessed a surge in curiosity surrounding 2Pac’s narrative. The spark ignited with a recent police raid at a Las Vegas residence, unveiled to be linked to the ongoing investigation into 2Pac’s tragic demise. This property belonged to Keefe D, a figure long intertwined with the rapper’s unsolved murder.

Adding to the intrigue, a substantial buzz emanated from the sale of a ring worn by 2Pac during one of his final public appearances. What are your thoughts on 2Pac’s contemplation to engage with Common amidst his feud with Ice Cube? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

You remember the rapper just shuts down Westside Connection reunion despite mack 10’s comments. 

He said, “That’s the question of the year, bro! I don’t know, man. People asked me that and I really don’t know what it’ll take. I’m down, I’m sure Dub is down. Somebody probably gotta ask Cube what it’ll take because I really don’t know.”

He added, “[Fans] ask me in traffic and everywhere. Might be at the red light or something and somebody will recognize [me]. ‘Man, what’s up Mack? What’s it gonna take to get another Westside Connection album?’ And my answer is the same every day: I don’t know. I really don’t though.”

You remember that the group hasn’t released any Album together since 2003. Ice Cube now enjoy his new group that features Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and E-40.

Ice Cube Claims He Has The Greatest Diss Song Of All Time

Ice Cube Claps Back: Debunking Claims of Pushing Black People to Vote Republican

Renowned rapper/actor O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson has become a hot topic once again, as the 2024 U.S. presidential race gains momentum and Republican contenders vie for the White House. This raises the question: Will Ice Cube jump into the political arena like he did in 2020?

Three years ago, Ice found himself at the center of a media firestorm when he aligned himself with the Donald Trump administration and introduced his self-proclaimed Contract With Black America (CWBA).

Ice Cube asserted that Democrats had declined to discuss his CWBA proposal prior to the 2020 election. However, it was reported that Cedric Richmond, the then-national Co-Chair of the Biden-Harris campaign, did indeed have a Zoom call with the influential Hip Hop mogul before election day.

Interestingly, Ice allegedly declined an opportunity to have a pre-election Zoom meeting with Kamala Harris, the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate at the time. Consequently, Cube faced accusations of being a pawn for the Republican Party and Donald Trump.

Recently, a social media user with the Twitter handle @LilHulkQ criticized Ice Cube, claiming that his actions were detrimental to the Black community. The user accused Cube of urging African-American voters to abandon the Democratic Party in favor of supporting Republicans, who allegedly suppress Black votes, undermine Black history, and dismantle Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs that benefit Black individuals.

In response to this criticism, Ice fired back, stating, “I never told yo’ Black ass who to vote for, so stop lying and get that ‘clickbait’ out’cha mouth.” It’s evident that Ice Cube remains steadfast amidst the ongoing controversy surrounding his alleged association with the far right-wing movement.

Ice Cube Claims He Has The Greatest Diss Song Of All Time

Ice Cube Claims He Has The Greatest Diss Song Of All Time

Ice Cube, the West Coast rap legend, boldly asserts that he possesses the undisputed best diss song of all time. In an interview on the Earn Your Leisure podcast, Cube wasted no time in proclaiming, “No Vaseline” as the unparalleled battle anthem, leaving no room for debate.

Cube’s top five diss tracks include the relentless masterpieces by 2Pac, Nas, Boogie Down Productions, and Kool Moe Dee. Reflecting on his choices, he cited the scathing “Hit ‘Em Up,” the epic “Ether,” the classic “The Bridge Is Over,” and the impactful “Let’s Go.”

During a previous revelation on The Breakfast Club, Cube revealed the origins of “No Vaseline,” his 1991 diss track aimed at his former group, N.W.A. The song, which he claims knocked them down like bowling pins, emerged amidst escalating tensions. Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted album focused solely on his collaboration with Public Enemy and the Bomb Squad, without any mention of N.W.A. However, N.W.A responded with disses of their own, triggering Cube’s fierce retaliation with the iconic “No Vaseline,” a game-changing track that ignited the industry.

Released as part of his second solo album Death Certificate in October 1991, “No Vaseline” coincided with Dr. Dre’s departure from N.W.A., ultimately leading to the group’s disbandment.

Ice Cube Warns AI Music Creators - I Don't Wanna Hear That Bullsh-T

Ice Cube Warns AI Music Creators: “I Don’t Wanna Hear That Bullsh-T”

Ice Cube, renowned for his candidness, recently expressed his strong opposition to the current trend of artificial intelligence (AI) in music. During a conversation on the Full Send podcast, the former N.W.A member made it clear that he has no interest in AI-generated songs. When asked about the viral AI-produced collaboration between Drake and The Weeknd, called “Heart on My Sleeve,” Ice Cube dismissively replied, “I don’t wanna hear that bullshit.” He even suggested taking legal action against the creators and platforms involved in the dissemination of such content.

Ice Cube is not alone in his skepticism toward AI technology. Fellow rapper and Black Eyed Peas co-founder, will.i.am, shared similar concerns during an interview on SiriusXM. He highlighted the need to safeguard personal biometric data, such as “facial math” and voice frequency, in order to prevent potential misuse. Will.i.am emphasized that without proper regulation, individuals could face serious repercussions, ranging from identity theft to unauthorized access to personal accounts.

As the influence of AI continues to grow, artists like Ice Cube and will.i.am are shedding light on the importance of establishing comprehensive guidelines to protect creative ownership and personal data. With technology advancing at an unprecedented rate, it is crucial for society to adapt and implement appropriate measures to govern this new frontier.

Mind Blowing AI Cover of 50 Cents Classic Song Leaves Mike Tyson in Awe THEURBANSPOTLIGHT.COM

Mind-Blowing AI Cover of 50 Cent’s Classic Song Leaves Mike Tyson in Awe

In a surprising twist, AI technology has resurrected the voices of 2Pac and Biggie, captivating listeners with a rendition of a beloved 50 Cent track. Even retired heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, was left astounded by the AI-generated masterpiece.

During an episode of the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, guest Tony Yayo shared tales from G-Unit’s heyday before delving into the influence of AI voice technology in the music industry. To demonstrate its power, Yayo requested the playing of “Many Men” by 50 Cent, 2Pac, and Biggie.

Tyson and co-host DJ Whoo Kid were taken aback. Although not an exact replica of a collaboration between the iconic artists, the fusion of Biggie’s voice delivering 50 Cent’s hook and 2Pac’s opening verse left Tyson astonished. It was a mind-bending experience that left everyone in awe.

While Yayo was impressed by the AI-driven future, other artists, like Snoop Dogg, remain skeptical. Snoop expressed his reservations about a proposed AI-generated joint album featuring Biggie and 2Pac, suggesting that incorporating their original vocals would be a more authentic approach. Likewise, Ice Cube also voiced his concerns, stating he would take legal action against anyone attempting to create AI-generated songs using his voice.
