Rapper: Ice Cube
Is He The "Old-Ass Rapper" Lil Wayne Is Rapping About? In the months leading up to the release of Cube's ninth solo album, I Am The West, the former N.W.A. member released a song called "I Rep The West" that featured some subliminal (and some not-so-subliminal!) shots at everyone from Jay-Z and Kanye West to Eminem and—you guessed it—Lil Wayne. But Wayne was, of course, in prison at the time, so it wouldn't shock us to hear that he was just getting around to dropping a response to Cube now that he's gotten back into the booth.
