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."
