Superbowl Time

Sun, Feb 7, 2010 at 12:17 AM By: Ice Cube

What Up Fam, this is the voice of Cube.

Who you got in the Super Bowl? I got the Saints by 3. New Orleans needs the win more then Indiana (birthplace of the Klan). If it wasn't for the Saints and Hornets New Orleans would be left for dead. I'mma check out the Bowl at the house with the family and friends this year. Not too many people over. I've been to 5 SuperBowls. Seen one, you've seen them all. Love the game but hated the hassle. When I go somewhere as a fan, I always end up part of the show. It's cool. I knew the job was dangerous when I took it. Go Saints!

Next week, I got a few movie meetings and I'm working on my new photoshoot. My last two records where studio photoshoots. I want to go out and hit the city this time. Feel L.A. in the background. The industry continues to overlook the West Coast and it's my personal mission to keep us on the map. Most of the hip hop promotional vehicles are located in New York and Atlanta. So we always get the short end of the stick, but what else is new. No complaints.

Shot out to my folks in the Middle East, Edmonton, Detroit and Modesto,CA. I got a question the other day asking if I'd read Jerry Heller's book "Ruthless." In the book, Jerry Heller was hating on me. The answer is "No." Why? Because Jerry didn't know me outside of the studio at all. I met Jerry Heller in the fall of 1988 when we we're working on Eazy E's record, "Eazy Duz It". He walked into the studio and Eazy told us he was going to work with us. It was a done deal. No vote. Eazy's decision. I really didn't care. All I wanted to do was rip the mic. My first impression was..."why would this old white man with gray hair wanna manage our group". I didn't trust him and asked alot of questions. He didn't like me from day one because of that. He tried to get me to sign a contract without a lawyer several times. I knew he was a crook, so I left the group. BECAUSE OF HIM. JERRY HELLER BROKE UP N.W.A. I've talked to Eazy's wife Tameka Wright recently and she said Eazy was about to fire Jerry before he came up dead. I heard Jerry hooked him up with the doctor. Don't go to Cedar Sinai Medical Center if you wanna live.

Another question: Why did I pick Modesto, CA for the setting of Janky Promoters? I love giving shot outs to California city that people rarely hear from. In Next Friday we used Rancho Cucamonga. Its all love. Somebody gotta rep the West. Peace to everybody checking in on me everyweek. I'm reading everything.

Holla.

    Cube homie! Thanks for keeping in contact with your fans. I got a few questions 4 u and I hope not to offend u in anyway so please take that to heart from a big fan of yours since 88. Don't feel like you need to answer as I don't want to conjure up old beef but if u do thats cool as well.
    1) Do you still keep in touch with J-Dee from the Lench Mob?
    2) Do you still see see Hutch or any of the members from ATL around? I heard that their was an encounter in NY years ago but u guys cool now?
    3) You and Mack cool? would love to see another WSC album
    4) How has your view on life/industry changed now over 20 years later? You had songs like Burn Hollywood Burn and lyrics Don't give juice to the Raiders cuz Al Davis never paid us...

    Anyways peace to you and your fam from a fan in Los Skkkandelous

    Cube, thanks for answering the Jerry Heller question. It's interesting to hear that Tameka said E was gonna fire JH. There is doubt in my mind that Heller would ardently deny that, as he calls E his son in the book several times. Oh well...any word on the NWA Documentary that's supposed to be going down?? I think it's long overdue!

    I really hope so. I've been writing to you for decades man. Never had a vehicle to actually get it there. So thats why i keep stressing the fact that I "hope" its u. After chkn in and seeing minimal activity I thought "maybe he needs some help" I would love to see how I could assist. Starting with the overall layout. It kinda restricts my functionability- ive only been in the matrx for a month tho so it could be me... I got the Saints too. I think it'll be more like 4.5---- lol--- and Real Women wear Blaque n e way. I'll be in Platinum but blaque and gold iz always a good look 2.
    I havent had my character count cut off yet- so thats great!--
    Imma go. gotta lotta wrk to do right now. I thought about takin the day off- then I realized the game dont start here til 6pm or somethin...
    maybe u can raise money by raffling some bowl tix. We goin soon... how'd that meeting wit al go?
