Ice Cube said he did not want to be a part of a Zoom call with Sen. Kamala Harris that included other ‘entertainers’
Ice Cube has been adamant that Democrats told him to hold off until after the election before making demands for his “Contract With Black America.” However, he admitted that he blew off a Zoom call with vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
The NWA rapper and actor recently revealed to Fox Soul’s Cocktails with Queens, that features Claudia Jordan, Vivica A. Fox, LisaRaye McCoy, and Syleena Johnson, that he turned down a request by the California senator to be a part of a Zoom call. He didn’t want to lumped in with other “entertainers” and passed on the offer.
“Kamala Harris’ folks reached out to you and wanted you to be on this Zoom call because they thought your voice was important. Why did you choose to not participate in that?” Jordan asked.
“We had spent a lot of people’s time putting the contract with Black America together, and I just thought that getting on a Zoom call with 12 other entertainers all shooting what they believe needs to be done, to me wasn’t going to be productive,” Cube said,
The entertainer added that his lawyer “has a connection with Kamala Harris, and I was promised a call that I never received. So that’s why I didn’t feel like I wanted to be on that Zoom call.”
Jordan noted that Harris is Joe Biden’s running mate but Ice Cube dismissed her point.
“She’s the vice-presidential candidate,” Jordan mentioned.
“Listen, listen, because I had the conversations,” Cube responded.
