People's Party with Talib Kweli

Ice Cube Talks N.W.A., East vs. West, Squashing Beefs, ‘Friday,’ BIG3

S1, Ep. 34

On the 33rd episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, actor, producer, director, writer, sports league founder, and all-around legend among legends: Ice Cube.

The conversation covers a multitude of subjects and starts at the beginning — with the story of Cube growing up with aspirations of playing pro football before transitioning into one of the most respected, prolific lyricists of all-time. The trio discusses the origins of Ice Cube classics like “Boyz-n-the-Hood” and “It Was A Good Day,” the booming growth of the BIG3 basketball league, and emcees who had the most impact on the development of Cube’s pen-game.
