Oscars & Grammys

Tue, Feb 2, 2010 at 10:21 PM By: Ice Cube

What's up Fam, this is the voice of Cube...

I got some good news today. Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders agreed to do an interview for my "Straight Outta L.A." documentary. The one I'm doing for ESPN 30 for 30 series. We've been asking Al for about 6 months and he finally said, "yeah." I'm suppose to fly to Oakland after the Super Bowl and sit down with him. Everybody hates on Al Davis cause he's a hands on owner. But I like that. "My way or the fuckin' highway" you gotta respect it.

I just signed on to do the Paid Dues Festival in San Bernardino on April 3rd. It's a Saturday. It cool cause this is the first time I'm on the same bill with my cousin Del the Funky Homosapien. I remember producing his first record with D.J. Pooh called "I Wish My Brother George Was Here." I got a lot of respect for Del too. He always hated commercialized hip hop. From day one.

Did ya'll watch the Grammys? Me neither. I remember people use to be excited about the Grammys. Now you know who's gonna win before their nominated. Beyonce'? 6 Grammys? Off this record? Seriously...

The Oscars never fail to celebrate Black people's sadness, misery and ugliness. Just look at the kind of roles that get nominated... Crooked cops, Green Mile type niggas and playing Ike Turner. Thanks Hollywood for always recognizing our downfalls. Not watching that shit either.

I did check out Capitalism: A Love Story by Micheal Moore. Good information. It shows who's really pulling the strings. Check out: Sicko by Micheal Moore. Dope.

I've been trying to get MC Ren back on the mic since Up N Smoke Tour. He just dropped a record so I hope he'll spit on my shit. Stay tune for details.

The Nas, Scarface project was being spearheaded by my homie Tony Draper. These project are hard to put together because of the different record companies. We all got too busy with our own projects and personal lives to make a dope record right now.

When I do tour. I will make it to Tilburg & Vienna

Going to the studio tomorrow. Trying to get Mike Epps to come by. If he does I'll film it and post it.

Keep it gangsta,
Ice Cube

    It would be nice to hear you and Ren trading bars again. I feel you on the Oscars and the Grammy's. Shit is way too predictable. The Grammy's don't recognize real music, just that soft bubble gum bullshit. We keep it Gangsta over here, fuck that girly shit.
