  • Interesting... but poor timing on Ice Cube's behalf to reach out via documented olive branch to Trump or Biden (before the WIN) during such a pivotal moment where he could (and was) used to his and Black America's own disadvantage. As a businessman and rapper, album releases, movie releases and even what time The Big 3 games come on is all based on TIMING and PREPARATION. So WHYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyy Cube? Why just release an IDEA... a concept... an incomplete album... a season schedule with no times or locations... Why not tell nobody? Why not confer with anyone online, or with the OGs of the Civil Rights, or even your trusted and loyal fans who still sing Fuck the Police 'til their lungs collapse. Why meet with PUBLIC ENEMY #1 "just in case he wins" a month before what many have considered one of the most important elections of our modern time? Why? Why not wait until January 20th to propose to whoever won (BIDEN)? -and that's why you got rightfully bunched in with Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Lil Pump...and I'm a lil' disappointed you didn't see it coming.

  • I hope he don't really think we believe what he is saying .

  • Who made Cube the leader of Black America? Clearly he doesn't know what's what because it's a struggle for him to articulate his 'Contract'. Also, where's his foundation? Surely there's more people involved in Cube's plan. Did he consult any Civil Rights Groups? There's an infrastructure in place for such policies. Also, he presented his plan to Biden, and was told that Biden liked some of the bullet points in the plan and wanted to discuss it further if he won the election. Cube then took his plan to Trump. That's when the plan became The Platinum Plan. Seems like Cube got trumped. Next thing we know, Cube, like Kanye and Lil Wayne became props for 45. Why would any Black person believe anything from Trump?

  • 1. Cube and his business partner have a 1.3 billion lawsuit against Qatar over Big3 basketball investments. 2. Jared kusher is friends with Cube's business partner who set up the meeting. 3. Jared kusher extorted 1 billion from Qatar by having Trump impose a blockade which went away when they paid off the 1 billion mortgage payment on a bad property deal by Jared. 4. They met with Jared to use a similar tactic to win their lawsuit. 5. This why he didn't meet with the Dems because they can't help with this situation. The Black Contract and the Platinum Plan are cover and potential side benefit to distract Black voters.

  • I like Cube but dude, just assume what you did embrace it but don't take black for ignorants. Timing is everything, you came out with this publicly when Trump had a problem with black voters. You talking for a whole community without being sensitive to the feelings and demands of that community. You don't just make a deal with anyone that is in power you make a deal with someone that cares, with someone that showed you they can be an ally, and I don't think Trump is that guy, but that is just my opinion. If your intention wasn't political you should have waited till the election pass and then reach out, only at that moment all the intentions would be clear on both sides. I think it is great to use your platform but agree with who you are representing that you made a mistake wittingly or not and that's how you win their trust and be a voice for them, until then I am thinking your intentions are not clear to me.

  • I agree with Cube and must apologize the media/maga spin on his agreement looked pretty bad and I know as old school Cube fan first thought was his words in "No vaseline" and while he owes no one am explanation of his motives here it is and I can appreciate that. As a mother to 4 amazing black sons and daughters I can feel much of what he is saying. Although I don't quite believe that Trump would ever fulfill that type of contract I do hope with giving him a vote he will be held to some accountability standard. As it is so apparent he has yet to take accountability for any of the mess that he himself created. On another note it is now after the election and the obvious pick for the American people is Joe Biden through our actual voices and votes and not of any type fraud propaganda the Trump admin GOP foxNews or the MagaSheep are attempting to spin. While Cube did not really say what the Biden/Harris campaign said of his contract it is a NON PARTISAN issue and IT IS DAMN TIME FOR RESPIRATION. I do respect what Cubes motives were. Now I wonder about 50 and does he really think he is gonna be 20cent with Biden? I believe I read his comments in quotes on being a maga for tax purposes which I believe is total selling out for the black community.

  • I’m very stuck on the earlier comment from Ice Cube, “We are going to add points for Black women”. How could major points for Black women, the Black woman experience not be in the formation of this idea, WHY ARE WE AN AFTERTHOUGHT! The current administration and ‘leaders’ of this country have shown us what they think of Black issues in America.

  • how are you going to have a “contract” on behalf of black america and not have black women included in the foundation of it. how are you just going to forget the only other humans who actually care about the black man. “black women are the most under appreciated...” has never been more real. get it together BROTHA.

A section on women,black women...” The fact this has to be done; adding bullets on black women to improve the way we are treated,respected,seen, is terrible. And should have been in the foundation, original bullets, of said document.

  • There is something wrong with a lot of you people or maybe you just don't know how to read! I read this contract and although I don't think all of these things will get done, they are groundbreaking for those who don't think they should be handed wealth on a platter. He is talking changing laws and rules and about money. Opening up transparency of money making opportunities to allow us to get wealth through property and fair percentages on loans. It even goes into re-educating children by including curriculum to teach anti racism and making sure our schools have enrollment reflect the population's diversity. This interview couldn't explain all of these things but i feel if any of you would read the contract you would get bored and probably not understand the "big" words. Staying woke means keeping informed about the world or nation around you. Please get a clue or at least a book.

  • I grew up listening to Ice Cube. Talk about the level of disappointment I feel to hear his insecurities as a black man now. You'd have to be scared, desperate, sold on white supremacy and the white washing of salvation at the mercy of white men in power to act this foolishly. Not only did he undermine the BLM agenda for equality and the cease to black killings and microaggressions by white people, he took the power out of black self respect and black independence and left it in the hands of a racist president who demonized positive political activists as "thugs" whilst empowering white hate groups to lynch & shoot people of color and to put on public displays of weaponized aggression in the relentless pursuit to crush the black spirit and silence their voices across the country. Based on Trump's consistent humoring at GOP rallies, I can visualize him laughing profusely at the back of Ice Cube, 50 Cents and West. These black men are so tempted by greed and envy for "sovereignty" that they religiously believe they need to sell their souls and ours for crumbs to the likes of Donald Trump. So f'ing PATHETIC!

Trump that's backed up by far right republicans, who are not willing to approve free medical, fair minimum wage, for a whole lot of low income Americans of which mojority people of colour, falls within , hence you expect Trump and his followers to help you come through. I'm sure you must be mistaken. Ice cube you should have made enough money from entertainment to establish good investment that help your people of colour into gainful employment. If you expect Trump and his followers to compensate slave descendants ,so you could raise funds for them to start up their business , you towing a long route.

This is just part of the “Prison Industrial Complex”. It’s not only blacks though it’s all of us. Just my opinion F/V “Black Mariah”.
