Ice Cube: Presidential Election is circus

Ice Cube

Ice Cube is taking a "political leap" with his new record Everythang's Corrupt.

The Californian rap legend released the music video for his eponymous single Thursday, just days before the November 6 US presidential election.

Cube has no qualms about jumping into a diplomatic debate about the future of his country.

"To me, it's kinda more a political leap than a first single. The timing is right," he told MTV News.

"To me I just feel like the hip-hop heads that are political will really like this record."

Cube is disturbed by presidential campaigns around election time.

He believes that running for office is farcical in many ways.

"It's really the same feeling you get almost every election cycle. It's a money game and nobody really cares, everybody just want to win," Cube explained.

"Ain't nobody want to fix the problems. It just seems like it's a whole circus and façade for money and control of a lot of money."

Despite his thoughts on Election Day, Cube urges people to reach the ballot box next week.

The star doesn't think people should regret their choice.

"I think you should vote when you got a clear cut understanding of what you're doing," Cube said. "Whether you like it or not, if they vote some s**t in [that] you don't like, you're gonna have to bow down to it."

The important thing is to work with materials that appeal to your sense of touch. You have a deep appreciation for tactile objects and people.More
