The legendary rapper Ice Cube discussed with Charlamagne Tha God about his rap group NWA’s hit song ‘Fuck The Police’ in a recent appearance on DJ Envy and Angela Yee’s The Breakfast Club.
Charlamagne accuses N.W.A. and says the rap group was playing a major role in stirring the animosity between police and the community by referring to the group’s classic single ‘F*ck The Police.’ He said:
“Cube, I have to say respectfully, a lot of that is N.W.A’s fault and I’ma tell you why. People in the community don’t want to be police cause ya’ll said fuck the police, and people in the community don’t respect the police because ya’ll said fuck the police.”
Ice Cube reacted to the famous radio host’s words by laughing and denied his claims about NWA. He replied:
“Nah, you can’t put that on N.W.A. People felt that way before N.W.A. I grew up with people who felt that way. This goes back for centuries. It’s a problem that needs to be fixed and it’s not getting better. It’s gotten the point where we can’t live under these conditions. We can’t do it and we going to change it, and they will change. Either they going to change or we’re going to change them.”
“I think even if you try to find a happy medium, you still gotta have people associated with the community. People who know the community. Not people who have no real feelings for the people in the community.”
