Rapper, movie star and producer Ice Cube talks to Bloomberg Politics about the 2016 election, Donald Trump, the Black Lives Matter movement, his upcoming “Barber Shop” sequel, intra-racial crime and his recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“We didn’t think no one cared about Watts and Long Beach,” he says.
In the nearly 20-minute video, the interview ties the politics of N.W.A. to the lack of political rap music today in response to the BLM movement. When asked about the political nature of N.W.A., he says the group deals with “street knowledge.” Ice Cube says that he and the group were not going to conform to societal standards.
