Earlier in the year rapper Ice Cube took to the internet to express his distaste for a number of up and coming rappers representing the “New West.” The California rapper has now revealed in an interview with AllHipHop.com that he has no issue with these new West Coast artists.
“All that shit is squashed, [we] are keeping the unity on the West Coast,” Ice Cube revealed to AllHipHop.com. “They know I’m down to work any of them at any time, so there really ain’t anything to perpetuate. I’m glad niggas was men about and just said ‘Yo it ain’t no beef’ and squashed it. The New West and the Old West can always work together to make money.”
The rapper took to his blog back in March of this year to call out the rappers stating that, “They can’t make a name for themselves so they need help from the O/G’s.” A number of rappers including Nipsey Hussle and Jay Rock responded to Ice Cube’s blog curious as to why they were being called out.
“WATTS UP WIT ICE CUBE TALKIN KRAZY ABOUT NEW WEST NIGGAS.IF HE GOT A PROB WIT 1 OF US HE SHUD SAY R NAME N STOP BN SCARED 2 CALL A NIGGA OUT,” Jay Rock said in a Tweet in regards to Ice Cube’s blog entry.
The New West rappers have yet to respond to Ice Cube’s comments about ending their beef and working together.
