Ice Cube Will Not Succumb to ‘Pressure’ to Stop Performing ‘F— Tha Police’ – Bill O’Reilly Calls It ‘Very Disturbing’

After the slew of police shootings and killings around the country, Ice Cube maintains he will continue to perform the N.W.A. hit single “F— Tha Police.” The rapper said he has not heard of anyone telling him not to perform the song, which was featured in the biographical film “Straight Outta Compton” last year.

In an interview with TMZ at an airport baggage claim, Cube is asked if he has felt pressure to stop performing the group’s 1988 hit for the time being.

“Pressure me? Pressure me to do what?” Cube asked. “Nobody said nothing to me. I ain’t gonna change nothing I do. Know what I mean? Cause I ain’t doin’ nothing wrong.”

The question refers to the string of fatal police shootings of two Black men earlier this month. Atlanta Black Star reports Alton Sterling was shot at point-blank range outside a Baton Rouge convenience store in Louisiana July 5. He had been selling CDs with permission from the owner. Within the next 24 hours, a cop shot Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota when he reached in his pocket to hand over his license during a traffic stop.

In reaction, Army veteran Micah Xavier Johnson reportedly shot and killed five officers at a protest in Dallas July 7. He wounded seven others. Ten days later on July 17, former Marine Gavin Long allegedly killed three officers and wounded three others in Baton Rouge.

XXL reports Cube previously performed “F— Tha Police” at Coachella in April. He was joined on stage by MC Ren and DJ Yella – the surviving members of N.W.A. excluding Dr. Dre, who was unable to attend. Together, Cube, Yella and Ren belted “Straight Outta Compton” along with their defiant protest song.

Cube is set to perform at Pomona, California’s HARD Summer Music Festival July 30, and his fellow band mates are listed as special guests, according to the concert website. There is no word on what their set list includes, but political commentator Bill O’Reilly has added his opinion on “Police.” He called the song a “piece of garbage.”

  1. Bill O. is a piece of garbage.

  2. Ervin Brown says:

    Yeah right! Ice Cube would call the police after he smoked that fool..Lol

  3. Hey, slavery is over. Get over it. And don't generalize or your as bad as the whites you hate. At the end of the day we are all human. So chill.

  4. They still singing "Dixie" ain't they?

  5. Blak Majik says:

    Ice Cube just wants your money stupid Caucasians so keep going to see his family movies. Did you really think someone as down as Cube wouldn't just fake liking whites to get paid? Blacks are experts at faking to like whites from centuries of slavery as Africans and the black natives who were already here.

  6. Darrin Long says:

    what about the white natives. that have been doing the same thing for years?

  7. Chris Sizer Correct!

  8. Just like in 1988, Bill O'Reilly and the rest of his Southern Strategy ilk are completely tone deaf to the current law enforcement climate in the streets. Furthermore, the reality on YOUR side of town doesn't necessarily apply to MY side of town. My question: Why is O'Reilly, a "journalist", not couching this as Ice Cube exercising his First Amendment rights? Imagine if somebody told O'Reilly, "Hey, you need to stop talking about this or that on your show…"
