*In the aftermath of catching all kinds of heat for hooking up with Donald Trump on his so-called “Platinum Plan” for Black America, Ice Cube is striking back with a defiant tweet.
“When I got [the] bus to school. Homies called me a sellout. When I started rapping in 1983. Bangers called me a sellout,” Cube (above) wrote. “When I left NWA. They called me a sellout. When I start doing movies. Rappers called me a sellout. When I started my own [3-on-3 basketball] league. The arena said it was a sellout.”

Needless to say, the responses were varied and definitely interesting:
*Sounds like the makings of a successful black man, beating the odds stacked against him in Amerikkka. Keep going brother. Everybody isn’t meant to understand. Always praying for you. KEEP GOING…

I need someone to explain to me how working with the current president to help black people who have been ignored for centuries, is a sellout? Also, why aren’t people upset that Cube also went to Biden’s camp who turned him down??????????????????????

Going from N.W.A., best known for the song “F*** the Police,” to working with Trump, the epitome of white supremacy and support for police brutality, is the ultimate sellout @icecube I’ve lost respect for you.
