Ice Cube has become a topic of discussion on social media after he revealed that the Trump administration contacted him to work on the Contract With Black America that he had drafted. T.I is giving his two cents on the situation.
It’s very important to note that Ice Cube is not endorsing a candidate. What he has tried to make clear is that he contacted both political parties in order to discuss a plan that would change the climate for Black people in many areas.
The republicans asked to meet with him to discuss the contract and then introduced their own version called The Platinum Plan. Meanwhile, Ice Cube revealed that the democrats said that they will take a look at it after the election.
Many people feel that he is being used by the Trump administration in order to get the Black vote. The timing of the situation seems fishy to some because this is happening less than a month before the election and Ice Cube would greatly benefit from Trump’s tax cuts.
T.I has a message to the skeptics.
The Atlanta native spoke to Power 106 where he explained: ‘If you have a bipartisan initiative, you given both sides the opportunity to be involved. To add input to this initiative for the greater good of your people. And only one side responds. That’s not Cube’s fault.’
While T.I acknowledges that the Trump administration may be trying to trick people into believing they are genuine, he explains that it was a missed opportunity by the democrats to push it back until after the election.
‘What you have to do is give Cube the benefit of his reputation. If we ain’t never known, or seen, or caught Cube on no bullshit. Doing no tap dancing and bending over backward for no White Supremacist, why you think he gon’ get started right now 35, 40 years in. Why? You got to give him the credit of his credibility. And if you ain’t known for him to be on no bullshit before, why you automatically gonna put him in the mix of some bull*** now?’
What do you think about T.I’s perspective?
