In a recent virtual interview, O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson explained why he decided to blow off taking part in a Zoom meeting with Sen. Kamala Harris that also included other entertainers, according to theGrio.
Ice Cube made an appearance on Fox Soul’s Cocktails with Queens earlier this week to give his side as to why he neglected to attend a Zoom meeting with Harris that he and other celebrities were invited to.
The show, which features Claudia Jordan, Vivica A. Fox, LisaRaye McCoy, and Syleena Johnson, had Ice Cube on as a guest and questioned why he wasn’t on the call that included the likes of D.L. Hughley, Snoop Dogg, and Killer Mike.
Jordan begins by asking Cube why wasn’t he a participant in the aforementioned Zoom call.
“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?”Jordan 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,” Cube said.
He also stated that his lawyer “has a connection with Kamala Harris, and I was promised a call that I never received. So that’s why I didn’t feel like I wanted to be on that Zoom call.”
Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond is denying a claim by the rapper that he was told by Joe Biden’s campaign to wait until after the election to make his demands for the Black community.
Trump adviser Jared Kushner met with Jackson to discuss his plan and added some of Jackson’s demands to President Trump’s Platinum Plan. Jackson received significant backlash for meeting with a Trump campaign member, but Jackson defended his actions on Twitter.
