Ice Cube caught flak recently, when it was revealed that he worked with the Trump reelection campaign on the Platinum Plan for Black America.
However, fellow rapper T.I. is now coming to Ice Cube’s defense, telling fans on Power 106 to give the N.W.A. rapper the benefit of the doubt.
His words below:
“I think people are being presumptuous. To add input to this initiative for the greater good of your people, and only one side responds? That’s not Cube’s fault.”
He went on to say:
“If we ain’t never known or seen or caught Cube on no bullsh**t—doing no tap dancing and bending over backwards for no white supremacist—why you think he gon’ start right now 35, 40 years in? Why? You’ve got to give him the credit of his credibility. And if you ain’t never known him to be on bulls**t before, why you gon just automatically put him in the mix of some bulls**t now?”
Last week, Ice Cube responded directly to claims that Trump is using or exploding him, saying (quote via TMZ):
“I know people have their thoughts… ‘I’m being used…’ I’m not being used. We can’t depend on one party to bring this through. It’s too broad. Both parties is gonna have to get with it.”
