Ice Cube Again Defends Working With Donald Trump on Platinum Plan: Im Not Playing Politics – Billboard


When Wallace suggested that people have called the N.W.A rapper a “sellout” for working with this president, Cube denied it. “I’ve told everybody that I’m not playing politics with this,” said the rapper, who prior to the Platinum Plan was working on his own Contract With Black America, a pledge for politicians right the wrongs of the past via prison reform, bank lending, and more. “I’m willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality.”

The Fox News anchor also asked what the artist would do to “push the system” over the next four years, regardless of who’ll be sitting in the White House. “Find pressure points. That’s the only way you can push,” Cube replied. “My daddy told me a long time ago, ‘No matter who’s the president, you gotta get up to go to work in the morning,’ and I always remember that. So no matter who’s the president, I’m gonna get up and go to work in the morning.”

The rapper did share on Twitter in mid-October that the Biden-Harris campaign was interested in meeting with him regarding Contract With Black America, but not until after the election. He defended himself at the time, tweeting on Oct. 15: “When we created the Contract With Black America we excepted to talk to both sides of the isle. Talking truth to power is part of the process.”
