Rap star Ice Cube mostly took aim at Democrats and fired away over the weekend. The acclaimed actor said following the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention:
“What I didn’t hear is, what’s in it for us? What’s in it for the black community besides the same ol’ thang we’ve been getting from these parties? What’s in it for us, for real?”
Plus he added, “The way it look, they don’t have a plan. Everybody’s talking about ‘Get Trump out. Get Trump out. Get Trump out.’ If you vote, that’s going to happen on the first day. So now what? Trump out, now what? What? What do we get on the first 100 days? That’s what we’re trying to figure out. What. Do. We. Actually get that we, that they could give us overnight?”
Ice Cube chided Congress for “pulling $3 trillion out they a**” as part of the relief package (although it’s actually $2 trillion) that went to the majority of Americans. Despite the stimulus, he said “42 percent of black businesses closing.”
He expressed, “None of that money—where’s our f***ing bailout? Where’s the bailout, not the PPP loan that they didn’t give us? Where’s the bailout? I don’t wanna hear about deficit. I don’t wanna hear about what our generation is going to have to pay. Because if we don’t have s**t, they ain’t going to have s**t anyway to pay nothing. So we gotta start something right now.”
In addition, “Democrats don’t seem like they got a plan, Republicans don’t seem like they got a plan for us. So how the hell are you going to vote for them? Make them earn that vote. They can start today. They ain’t got it yet. They can start today. Make their a** earn that vote, man. Stop playing with these people and they’ll stop playing with you,” he declared.
