Ice Cube: “If You’re a B*tch, You’re Probably Not Going to Like Us”

Ice Cube Has a Message For Bitches, Hoes, and Their Defenders

Rapper/Are We There Yet? star/writer of lines like, “I once knew a bitch who got slapped / ‘Cause she played me like she was all that” Ice Cube reflects on the misogyny he and his former group N.W.A. have been accused of in Rolling Stone’s next cover story, on stands Friday. In a preview post on Rolling Stone’s website, his musing comes under the bolded heading “Cube laughs off N.W.A’s lyrical treatment of women (which, to be fair, got way worse after he left the group).” Cube’s quote is (and I hope you’re ready to laugh along with this nice man):

If you’re a bitch, you’re probably not going to like us. If you’re a ho, you probably don’t like us. If you’re not a ho or a bitch, don’t be jumping to the defense of these despicable females. Just like I shouldn’t be jumping to the defense of no punks or no cowards or no slimy son of a bitches that’s men. I never understood why an upstanding lady would even think we’re talking about her.
