Ice Cube’s video features the following caption: “A message to the hardcore!” 

Cube was criticized for the 2 Chainz and Redfoo-assisted track by some, including HipHopDX reader “xhosa” who said the following in a comment for the “Drop Girl” video: “damn what a stupid song,why did Ice Cube have do this shit it useless…” Another reader, this one anonymous, called it “rotten.” A reader who calls himself “REAL WIGGA” also commented, saying, “HILARIOUS. 2 STARS FOR BEING FUNNY.” 

Ice Cube spoke to HipHopDX about this in the past.

“It’s a dope record,” he said. “It’s Ice Cube. I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel at all. I’m just trying to be up to date with my topics and my flow.”
