” Cube was the first one before we even started rappin’! One day he was coming out of typing class which was a boring class and he had like 24 bars , a long ass rap, and he said check out this rap that I wrote, and he spit it and I was like that was hard for that being your first rap. After that he was like we should start a group and we went to Jynx house and he had little stuff set up in the garage and we started out from there.”

” Cube was a fan of Ice-T , that’s how he first started liking rap, he said that dude is hard, and I ain’t gonna put him out there but that’s like almost how his name came about. He will tell a different story but his name was Purple Ice before that because he was into Prince and Ice-T. That was his name at first and one day he was like, man I need to change my name, and his Mom kept soad up under the counter, and he was getting a luke warm soda, he put it on the counter and got the glass and he got the ice cube tray and was like Ice Cube. He looked at me and I said it was tight. I heard him tell a different story but that’s how it went down.”

“To be honest I really don’t have a take because I really don’t know what happened. One day dude just stopped communicating with me. Really I don’t want to hold anything back, it’s not like I’m trying to put anything out there, I don’t know what happened. That question really has to be asked to him. From what I hear it was asked to him and he always throws it back on me. To this day I still don’t know what the reason is”
