Ice Cube On Why He Turned Down Verzuz Battles

Media Take Out Staff |

Ice Cube revealed why he had not set foot on the Verzuz stage for his own battle.

“I think they was talking LL at one point, they was talking Scarface at one point,” he said on the Bootleg Kev Podcast. “I said, ‘No.’ Verzuz is good, but my concept would have been, ‘Yo, I’m a fan. You do this song for me.’ Like, okay, I get to have LL do my favorite LL songs and he gon’ have me do my favorite Ice Cube songs.”

Cube continued: “And it’s not Verzuz, but it’s love. It’s like, ‘Yo, do this, and he do ‘Rock the Bells,’ and he asks me, ‘Yo, do ‘Once Upon a Time in the Projects.” That would have been my concept.”

He added: “I can’t go against people I admire. LL is an OG to me in the game, so I can’t see it. Me and Scarface love each other, but we don’t communicate enough to do a Verzuz together. I don’t want it to be competition.”

Is it time for Cube to take the Verzuz challenge?
