“If you’re not a ho or a bitch, don’t be jumping to the defense of these despicable females,” says Ice Cube.
Though the full interview will be available once the new issue hits stores, the site published a few responses relating to these issues. Look at some choice quotes below.
Dr. Dre’s public beating of MTV host Dee Barnes at a party in 1991, as well as allegations that he beat and shot at his ex-fiancé (and mother to his child) Michel’le Toussaint:
“I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life … I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true – some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really fucked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”
When asked about the lyrical treatment and charges of misogyny in N.W.A’s lyrics, Ice Cube is described as “laughing off” the question:
“If you’re a bitch, you’re probably not going to like us,” he says. “If you’re a ho, you probably don’t like us. If you’re not a ho or a bitch, don’t be jumping to the defense of these despicable females. Just like I shouldn’t be jumping to the defense of no punks or no cowards or no slimy son of a bitches that’s men. I never understood why an upstanding lady would even think we’re talking about her.”
