DR. DRE & ICE CUBE COVER ‘ROLLING STONE’
With Straight Outta Compton premiering nationwide on Friday, N.W.A.’s Dr. Dre and Ice Cube get deep on the cover of Rolling Stone. Peep a few excerpts from their feature below. Issue hits newsstands Friday.
Dre addresses the 1991 incident when he assaulted TV host Dee Barnes, as well as recent charges of physical abuse by his Nineties girlfriend Michel’le.
“I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life,” says Dre. “I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true – some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really fucked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”
Cube laughs off N.W.A’s lyrical treatment of women (which, to be fair, got way worse after he left the group).
“If you’re a bitch, you’re probably not going to like us,” he says. “If you’re a ho, you probably don’t like us. If you’re not a ho or a bitch, don’t be jumping to the defense of these despicable females. Just like I shouldn’t be jumping to the defense of no punks or no cowards or no slimy son of a bitches that’s men. I never understood why an upstanding lady would even think we’re talking about her.”
