He should have said he just evolved into being a true gangsta. You pass by gangstas in your call all the time - go to the rich part of town and learn how those people made their money. It's likely more gangsta than anything any gangsta rapper ever actually completed, to get dough.

You're a real gangsta when you're in your house with nobody for acres around you. Sitting in the air conditioning eating some fresh food, staring out the window past the pool at your landscaping. You go into work, order people around directly and indirectly - THEY do all the work, and somehow you get a 6-figure salary, and work it so that you pay a minimal amount of taxes. You get money because you have money. You get free gifts from people daily, who cater to the rich - trying to impress you enough so you buy something they're selling. If you have an issue with any service you use or product you buy, one look at the amount and customer service does whatever the f**k you want, so they don't lose you as a customer. So you get the best rates on products and services, meanwhile most people are paying almost twice what you are.

That's what Cube should have said. But when you start to really publicly flaunt it - when you show that understanding and simultaneously reveal that understanding as a public figure with the means to educate the public - that's when the other true gangstas stand up.

Cause you're f**king with their money. Because the more eyes that see gangstas making money, the more it gets publicized and criticized. Then you get shut down, because they have to make an example, to continue that facade.

So I think instead of saying something, he just gave some b.s. answer. Maybe he understands, maybe he's on the cusp of understanding, or maybe he really doesn't know. But something tells me he kind of understands. He's not dumb or naive at this point.

Yep - I hadn't even watched the video. When they asked if he was a gangsta, he said "Yeah, but a business man". That's exactly it. Man I need to go back to the library and reread some theory texts.

Why don't you listen to his albums before judging the man..any person who listened to his albums will tell you he is one of the most conscious rappers the game has ever seen...he just added a little aggression to it but all his songs had an underlying message.


Cube and N.W.A. spoke for an environment, especially at a time when they had no voice. That's why it worked. check out "N.W.A. Most Dangerous Group" on VH1. Good story

he wasn't a gangster when he was with nwa. why do people wanna be one anyways? your cellphone is a tracking device, there are hidden cameras all over the streets, everybody is blabbing their business on facebook and twitter. police work is easier than ever. what's the fascination with being a thug anyway? threaten me or my family then i get busy other than that when i wake up in the morning i hope for a peaceful day with no problems. wtf is going on with rich rappers trying to convince the public they're dangerous criminals? just be a man that's all you need to be, enough with the fake goon s**t

Man.....
The whole "gangsta" thing is an image used to sell records. Ice Cube used that system perfectly and made a few hundred million dollars in the process. Who cares if Cube or any other rapper really lived that life besides a few losers who never lived in the hood, but think they know what the streets is all about? Cube is over 40 years old, why should he try to be a gangsta? Some of you ignorant people need to wake up and quit fantasizing over this rap nonsense. f**k being a gangsta. But if playing the role of one will get me paid, then I'm all for it! I'll be a gangsta in my songs and a "good boy" outside of wax, but I'll still be more paid than the losers who will talk down on me for not "keeping it real."

Cube was holding back, he knows better then to act up, if this was 20 or even 10 years ago it wouldnt of been the same way.... But then if u want me to drop some real talk, he wouldnt even be asked to do this show 20 years ago, they wouldnt want some1 w/ the "image" that he had on the show. So he def has made smart business moves, he letting money work for him not work for money.
