Mack 10 recently shared in an interview with Bootleg Kev that he has come to accept the reality that he may never be able to mend his relationship with his former Westside Connection colleagues, Ice Cube and WC. In fact, it has been almost two decades since he last saw them.
To express his perspective, the rap icon from Inglewood used a straightforward analogy: “I am willing to reciprocate respect and loyalty. “If you f*** with me, I f*** with you … if it’s f*** me, then f*** you!!!”
In 2003, Westside Connection released their final album, after which a physical altercation occurred between Mack and Cube’s brother-in-law, leading to irreparable damage to their relationship. Mack clarifies that he never blocked any attempts to reconcile and admits he has also lost touch with W.C., who ultimately chose to side with Cube.
Their relationship has become so sour that Mack didn’t even listen to Cube’s latest project, Mt. Westmore, which features Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and E-40. However, he assures fans that he is still enjoying creating his music and promoting his own artistic vision.
Mack’s new single, “King of Chevys,” produced by DJ Battlecat, showcases his continued dedication to representing the West Coast in his music, albeit without Cube and W.C.
