Ice Cube Tells Ye To “Stand On Your Own” With Remarks

LEGENDS & ICONS OF HIP HOP - Post By Kevin Douglas

The hip hop icon who is running for presidency again in 2024 has caused dissension with the United States recently with his remarks about Hitler.

During a different climate, Ice Cube was in support of Kanye gunning for the top office in the land, but that was in 2015 before all the recent drama surrounding the artist formerly known as Kanye. Ice Cube has in the past been called an anti-semite, but he has made sure to make everyone know he distances himself from the Yeezy designer.

Ye already praised Ice Cube as being an inspiration for his latest run of ideas. On the now removed Drink Champs episode, Cube denounced Kanye for mentioning his name with his rant on the show that got pulled.

The rap icon stated, “I hate that my name was dragged into this Drunk Champs bullshit. I don’t know what Ye meant by his statements, you’re gonna have to ask him. I didn’t put the batteries in his back. Please leave my name out of all the antisemitic talk. I’m not antisemitic and never have been”.

Some people took the “Friday” producer as scaling back on his previous statements and actually wanting to see Ice Cube participate in politics.

Nonethless, with last week’s Hitler statement, Ice Cube is once again denouncing any association with Ye. Cube was questioned about West’s statement once again while on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson. Matt Barnes wanted him to clear up any misunderstandings once and for all. “I mean, you know, when somebody turn it out—when a n*gga turn the party out and say, you know, he did it ’cause of you, you got to say somethin’ about that,” Cube said.

“Like, homie. Homie, homie. Nah, nah. You gotta stand on this one on your own,” he added when Tyson laughed in the background. “That’s all that was about. You know, I didn’t say nothin’. It’s just, at the end of the day, I just had to let everybody know that don’t blame me for sh*t.”

“Talk your sh*t if you want to, but don’t blame me for sh*t. If I ain’t up there speaking for myself, don’t blame me.”
