In the last presidential election, Ice Cube wanted both candidates to read his contract for Black America. Now, The West Coast legend is calling out President Biden for not meeting with him about it two years into his term.
Legendary rapper, actor, and businessman Ice Cube recently called out President Biden for not meeting with him about his contract for Black America.
The aforementioned Black America contract mentions new business and economic improvements for Black Americans and legislative changes against racial injustice.
Discussion & Backlash
In an interview on In Depth With Graham Bensinger, Ice Cube says President Biden nor anyone in his administration has contacted him about his contract proposal. Before President Biden’s election, Ice Cube was called a “sellout” over meeting with representatives of former President Donald Trump to discuss the contract.
In addition, Ice Cube also addressed his political views after controversy on social media.
Fans reacted to the interview on Twitter, where most comments disagreed with the California artist. One user voiced his frustration by asking why Ice Cube is complaining about President Biden during election season.
“I still haven’t spoken to (President Biden) about it. They haven’t done anything to act on it,” Ice Cube said.
Users went as far as to call out the Are We There Yet? actor for other reasons, such as accusing him of not having a plan for Black women or not asking former President Trump about discussing issues in Black communities.
One user tweeted that she was disappointed in male rappers such as Ice Cube, Killer Mike, and Kanye West. She added that female rappers like Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, and Rihanna would “NEVA.”
