"Democrats, too, were interested in cultivating the rapper.... But Ice Cube’s team left with the impression that Biden’s team was less committed."

"According to a person familiar with the discussion, Biden aides told the rapper they agreed with much of his plan but that they wouldn’t engage more fully until after the election.... As September wore on, Ice Cube and his advisers continued to lobby the White House during conference calls. On Sept. 14, the performer and his representatives — again not eager to be seen at the White House — quietly met in a Washington hotel with a group of Trump aides.... Ice Cube's group had prepped for the mee...

New Video: Ice Cube Feat. Too $hort “Ain’t Got No Haters”

Confession: I haven’t listened to Ice Cube’s latest album (which is a less egregious thing for a rap fan to say in 2019 than it was 25 years ago.) But this joint right here is funky. Taken from his aforementioned LP, Everythang’s Corrupt, Cube teams up with director Alan Del Rio Ortiz to give his Too $hort-assisted, DJ Pooh-produced “Ain’t Got No Haters” a visual makeover. Cube and Short Dog’s chemistry makes it a fun, feel-good affair, but this one really deserved a mid-summer cookout in th...

The quoted article is "When the Dominatrix Moved In Next Door/A 'kink collective' in a residential area of Brooklyn has upset longtime residents and resulted in a culture clash and gentrification struggle all wrapped up into one fight" (NYT).But the battle on Quincy...
