In the process of parting ways with the group, the Rap legend pondered on trusting himself and his ideas.
We all take chances in life in order to attain our next milestones, and while these risks might be tough, many people think they are worthwhile. Ice Cube was unhappy with his experiences with N.W.A. when he decided to leave the group in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but he was also eager to pursue his career as a solo artist. We’ve heard rumors that N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller owes Cube money, and in a recent interview, the Rap superstar stated why he’s taking the biggest risk of his career.
Cube told HipHopDX, “I think quitting N.W.A. was a major risk.” “It might have gone worse from there after you got to the top of the mountain and you just kind of threw yourself over.”
“That might have gone horribly wrong, but it taught me to trust myself, what I see, and what I believe. And I was determined not to let this business define who I am “He went on to say more. “Nothing, in my opinion, is worth saving. Don’t do anything if you don’t feel like it. Don’t be concerned about the past or the future; simply act on your instincts. And, whether anyone likes it or not, you’ll be able to live with yourself at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter what you look like as long as you can live with yourself.”
Cube’s departure from N.W.A. sparked a feud between him and his former colleagues, and Hip Hop got diss tunes that became classics. Before Eazy-E died of AIDS-related complications in 1995, Cube and Eazy-E were able to reconcile.
