Some people refer to people who are no longer on the front lines as, Sell-outs. We here at Bossip were wondering what your thoughts are on people that once were militant or in the game, now being iconic figures in mainstream media?

A perfect example is Ice Cube who was once more militant than most of you youngsters can imagine. Cube  has since made numerous provocative films, and most recently, a few in the children’s genre.

Here, peep Cube’s old song, Enemy.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Thoughts?

    I don’t consider him a sellout either. Now that he has money he has more options and he’s expanding. Nothing wrong with self growth.

    He’s funny and multi-dimensional.. but don’t get it twisted, Ice Cube is pro-black and balck peopl eunderstand his point of view whether it’s funny or gangster.. he’s an icon in the community and he’s down for anything black. he’s an activist and he always speaks the truth..I love ice cube and I’ll support everything he does as long as he keeps putting anything out.

    Ice Cube is the truth!
