Ice Cube Talks ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Oscar’s Snub, Kendrick Lamar & More With Angie Martinez
by Staff Editor
In light of Ride Along 2, N.W.A.’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, etc., Ice Cube’s been on a major promo run, and rightfully so. His latest stop was Angie Martinez’s show on Power 105.1 for an impromptu interview.
Cube and Angie speak on Straight Outta Compton’s Oscar’s snub, praising Kendrick Lamar for his recent accomplishments, their family lives and how important that is to Cube, N.W.A. getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, his latest comedy Ride Along 2, and much more.
The most notable part of the conversation was the Oscar’s snub for SOC, which Cube was far from happy about. “Maybe we should’ve put a slave in there,” Cube jokingly says. Getting a bit more serious, he adds, “The thing about it is that does not define us. That award is cool – it’s cool to be recognized – but people recognized this movie back in August when it did $200 million at the box office.”
Way to keep it real, Cube. Watch his full interview with Angie below.
