    No, but he's been a part of some pretty serious beatings and shit. I think karycokwell91 said it best.

    I like Ice Cube though. He has a nice character. With rap, you have to remember that these guys are storytellers. Just like R&B, Country, Rock and any other genre. And the stories sound better in 1st person. So that's the skill that comes with being a musician. The ability to tell stories and make them believable. He's a musican first. Not a thug that raps.

    I also agree with that, and there's nothing wrong with him trying to continue to provide a living for his family. If we want to talk about Ice cube being a sell out then you might as well start talking about Ice T too.

    Anyone that would call Cube a fake was not born in 1987 when Cube came out. Don't let those lames rewrite history when they were not even around.

    People go through phases, but no rapper out today will say that cube is fake. There is a reason for that.

    Ice Cube has been able to tell stories about his life since the early 80s. You find one article without any credibility and he's suddenly a fake? Before you ask whether he's a fake or not, ask where the sources are.

    I don't know that he was fake back then, but he has definitely sold out now. He was sort of a pioneer in the gangsta rap genre, so there was less pressure back then to embellish one's reputation in order to seem hard. It has gone on quite a bit since then, though. Still, it is hard to believe that someone who was supposed to be a gang banger is making family films now. Makes you wonder.

    I think Ice Cube is the real deal too. I do think he has changed since his NWA days. He is more focused on his responsibilities and I like that. I love how he wants to provide for his family instead of focusing trying to be a thug.

    The article that OP shared was a Hubpages article. Not a Time magazine article, just Hubpages.
    Hubpages is basically a blogging platform where college kids and stay home mommies write articles for free and maybe if they're lucky and get enough views, they get a few dollars in their Paypal account from advertising clicks.

    If OP wants us to take this story about Ice Cube seriously, OP should present a real article from a credible news source.
    Hell, I could whip up a 1,200 word article for Hubpages, it doesn't make me a reporter. Hubpages lets anyone in.

    I think Cube's legit. Just because he's starred in some family-friendly movies and TV shows and such doesn't make him a "poser". He's just furthering his career. I mean, is Ice T a "poser" for releasing "Cop Killer" then going on to play a cop for years and years on TV? It's a funny bit of irony, sure, but it doesn't make him a poser.

    Ice Cube can't act for shit .. e.g Anaconda , but he is legit. He may not be the gun toting, gangster type rapper but that doesnt mean anything when it comes to his rap skills.

    I think he's better making movies, but also is good making music. Ice Cube has a very large repertoire and has lots of experience

    I think anybody who did Three Kings is allowed to do at least a couple of crappy family movies. Problem with Cube is he looks too cuddly, with his potato-shaped head and everything.

    As for his music? Leave the past in the past, man, he hasn't had it for years. After you've done a Gathering of the Juggalos your rap cred is basically in the toilet.
