July 19, 2016 @ LAX, Digital Music News Publisher, TMZ reporter Paul Risnikoff catches ice Cube at LAX and probes him for answer.
Just caught this video off a Twitter search and thought the response by Ice Cube regarding his ‘legendary’ song should be shared.
Fueled by the ravages of police brutality throughout the years, protestors ante-up. The question on the mind of all lawmakers. politicians, citizens, and those associated with Black Lives Matter, “What is it going to take to make it stop?”
Ice Cube, for one, is not going to take down his song, stop his performances showcasing his legendary song, or concede to possibly being part of the solution. In the interview, he replied “I ain’t doing nothin wrong.” After all, his audience wants to hear that song and that’s what made his career – right?
Just an FYI: His most recent concert was in Quebec, July 8, 2016 where he performed his protest song – not that Quebec has too much concern for America’s racial plight, but Ice Cube is obviously staging a worldwide awareness.
Meanwhile, over at City Hall, protestors are loudly playing Ice Cube’s legendary song waiting for the Commission’s response to the shooting of a black woman, Redel Jones, in a Los Angeles back alley, 2015. They also called for Charlie Beck’s resignation barring any conviction of the officer who shot Ms. Jones (see photo insert).
Then, on the other side of DTLA (downtown Los Angeles), in Joe’s parking lot around 3rd and Beaudry, other rappers like Snoop Dogg and The Game hosted a “anti-violence summit with member of rival Crips, Bloods, and others invited to drop their weapons in the name of peace.” The call was for ‘men only’ and they marched peacefully to LAPD. The olive branch was extended to the Commissioner Beck as Snoop Dogg said “respect is key.” (article)
The question asked, “Is there a moral to this story.” Which rapper would you support?
