Ice Cube has recently addressed the allegation linking him to the purported “secret meeting that changed rap” and the iconic N.W.A legend is not holding back in his response.
The origin of the concept of a “Secret Meeting That Changed Rap” can be traced back to a blog post that gained popularity about a decade ago. An anonymous source claimed that in 1991, a group of 25 to 30 influential figures in the music industry orchestrated a conspiracy to establish a prison pipeline through rap music.
According to this theory, these executives allegedly collaborated to promote music encouraging criminal behavior, employing Black individuals to create such content. This, in turn, would provide privately owned prisons (claimed to be investors in the music industry) with a ready source of free labor.
The notion has been endorsed by some rap artists, and a fan brought it up to Ice Cube on Monday (January 29). The fan suggested that Ice Cube and N.W.A were either directly involved in the meeting or served as the prototype for record labels to create similar rap groups, thus contributing to the alleged prison pipeline.
In response, Cube dismissed the claim, stating, “Opinions are like a**holes. Everybody has one, and they all stink! What evidence do you have to make a statement like that?”
Ice Cube’s straightforward response challenges the credibility of the allegations and emphasizes the need for concrete evidence. It’s clear that he is not willing to entertain baseless accusations without proper substantiation.
