Ice Cube On Turning Down Kamala Harris Group Zoom Call: "I Want To Get Things Done"

|

Ice Cube said in an interview on the FOX Soul program "Cocktails with Queens" that he passed on a request from Democratic nominee for vice president Sen. Kamala Harris to participate in a Zoom group call because it would be full of "entertainers" and "wasn't going to be productive."

"I want to get things done," the rapper told host Claudia Jordan. "I don't want to just spin my wheels, talk to people who can't really make it happen."

"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?" she 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," Ice Cube answered.

The entertainer also defended his recent praise of President Donald Trump for reaching out to the black community.

"Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA," Ice Cube said referring to the Contract with Black America.
