Ice Cube is really battling on this hill of scams and jigs. The Hip-Hop icon with questionable political acumen has taken to Twitter today (Nov. 5) to reassert his decision to allegedly confer with Donald Trump for a magical cash infusion to the Black community was somehow a good look.

To be clear, Cube’s help in Trump creating his “Platinum Plan” for Black people has been mostly panned. Well, Lil Wayne does like it, too.

Nevertheless, Cube took to Twitter to express dismay at the critique about thinking negotiating with this particular White Supremacist could benefit Black people.

“Let me get this straight, I get the president of the United States to agree to put over half a trillion dollars of capital in the Black Community (without an endorsement) and Niggas are mad at me? [laughing emojis]…have a nice life,” he tweeted. 

But what many can’t get over is Cube having faith in Donald Trump, the president of the United States he referred to who has done nothing but lie ever since. and before, he entered office. During an interview with Roland Martin (who took to Twitter to set Cube straight, again (see below)), he pointed out that $500 billion number he keeps trotting out was smoke and mirrors.

Add to that the fact that Cube was famed for being wary of the record industry jig Jerry Heller was allegedly pulling on him while he was a member of N.W.A and his insistence that Trump would deliver on his work makes little sense.

In case he forgot, Twitter is reminding Ice Cube just how crazy he sounds. No shots.

We’re going to go out on a limb and say Ice Cube didn’t vote…
