Cube replied saying, “Man. I can’t wait to see that, like that [Harvey] Weinstein in those handcuffs, man. That’s a beautiful day.”
Ice Cube whose real name is O’shea Jackson was a household name in the 90s. He is known for songs such as Straight Outta Compton, No Vaseline, It Was A Good Day and You Can Do it. He further clarified rumors that he had stopped doing music.
“I stay in music. I never leave. I’ve got albums out. I’m touring, I got tour dates coming. I never stop. It’s a part of who I am,” the 50-year-old star said. “I love it and it’s really about just being a b-boy and not nothing else, you know? I don’t care about the industry as much as I used to but I do care about the music, doing it, still staying active. I still got stuff to say. So it’s fun.”
According to him, “Arrest the president” was not only in criticism of Trump, but to get fans to vote in the 2018 midterm elections.
