Motivational Quotes - Hip Hop - Ice Cube

"If I'm more of an influence to your son as a rapper than you are as a father…you got to look at yourself as a parent." - Ice Cube, on kids and rap music.

"Ahh, you got a lot of corporate people runnin’ sh!t then it was when I came out. When I came out you had B-boys and hip-hoppers runnin’ the industry, now you got a bunch college kids -- y’know what mean? It’s like, pff. They kinda get all tha information outta magazines, y’know what I mean? They ain’t really down an’ dirty with it, so it’s a different industry. - (From a 9/2007 interview with AskMen, full interview click here, Ice Cube Interview)

Ice Cube first came to notoriety as a rapper with the controversial and influential rap group N.W.A. Now a classic, from their debut LP "Straight Outta Compton", including the title track "Fuck Tha Police", "Gangsta Gangsta" and "Express Yourself". From music to movies, Ice Cube has starred/or produced in my favorites; "Boys 'N Da Hood" (1991), "Friday" (1995) and Barbershop (2002).
