Ice Cube Did What?!
The lengthiness of the song, reaching over five minutes, shows Ice Cube’s relentlessness. Naming people like Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Mc Ren, DJ Yella and Jerry Heller, the manager of the group. Heller was known for his suspicious style of business which did not sit well with Cube.
To aid in picturing his departure from the group, Ice Cube spit: “Lookin’ like straight Bozos. I saw it comin’ that’s why I went solo.” “And kept on stompin’ / When y’all motherf*ckers moved straight outta Compton,” he continues.
Ice Cube then calls out people he’s collaborated with in the past, saying: “Ay yo Dre, stick to producin’. Eazy-E saw your ass and went in it quick. You little maggot, Eazy-E turned f*ggot,” among others.
