Ice Cube On Oscar Snub "I'm Not Surprised, It's The Oscars, They Do What They Do"

"I'm not pissed, I'm not surprised. It's the Oscars, they do what they do."

If you think Ice Cube is upset about his co-produced film Straight Outta Compton only receiving one Academy Award nomination, surprisingly, you'd be wrong.

Cube stopped by The Wendy Williams Show Thursday (January 14) shortly after the nominations were announced, and in essence let the snub roll off his back.

"I'm not pissed, I'm not surprised. It's the Oscars, they do what they do," the 45-year-old rap veteran said. "The people love the movie and the people supported the movie."

The NWA biopic, which was also produced by Dr. Dre and Eazy-E's widow, received aBest Original Screenplay nominations. The F. Gary Gray directed film, which debuted last August, smashed box office records earning $200 million million worldwide as well as landing at No. 1.

Cube, who stopped by the show to promote his new film Ride Along 2 with funnyman Kevin Hart, talked about NWA being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but also noted had the group not received the honor, it wouldn't have diminished NWA's importance.

"It is nice to be recognized, but N.W.A is anti-establishment so we're used to people trying to dismiss what we gotta say, used to the industry looking down on us," Cube said. "We were the black sheeps of the industry and we used to it. If we didn't get nominated, that would be familiar territory."

50 Cent Explains How Snoop Dogg "Stole" His Lamborghini

Power executive producer 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) is spilling the details on how Snoop Dogg "stole" his Lambo during his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (Aug. 16). According to Rap-Up, he and Snoop were performing at the Masters of Ceremony concert in Brooklyn in June. Fifty says Snoop surprised him when he showed up on stage during their "P.I.M.P. (Remix)" song.

Now after the award-winning rapper wrapped up his set, he realized that his custom Versace Lamborghini Aventador was missing. As he was searching for his whip he soon found out that valet gave it to Snoop.

"I was like, 'Where did the car go?' And he was like, 'Snoop took the car.' I said, 'What? I'm like how you just let him take my car." Fifty was under the impression that the I Wanna Thank Me artist possibly took his car as payment for the performance.

"Later I made a tape saying that I owed him for the performance because he feel like you got me performing for free and you got cars like this out here. He thought I tricked him into a performance, but he offered to perform."

Jackson posted on his Instagram in late June his latest custom foreign two-door.

Trina To Address A&R's Comments About Nicki Minaj On Instagram Live

Trina is ready to address the public about comments from her camp about Nicki Minaj.

Earlier this week, Reginald Saunders, the head of A&R at Trina's label and cousin Bobby Lytes slammed Nicki for not promoting their collaborative single, "BAPS." The song was apart of Trina's album The One released on June 21, which was also the same day as the release for "Megatron."

In Saunders' post about Nicki, he also called out the rapper for heavily promoting her guest feature on Megan Thee Stallion's "Hot Girl Summer" but only sharing "BAPS" for a short amount of time on social media.

"This isn’t the first time @nickiminaj has pulled this stunt and trust me it’s cool," he said. "I can’t get over how fake people can be for a Lil fame, likes and followers. when everyone tried to warn me I still gave her the benefit of the doubt."

On Tuesday (Aug. 14), Trina took to Instagram to let her fans know her plans to address how "BAPS" came about and why a video hasn't been shot.

"First of all, everybody that knows me knows anything I gotta say, I will say it and address it," she said. "I don't need anybody to speak for me. Second of all, everything that I have to say, I will address it tomorrow. So catch me live and I will say it one time and one time only. I will not repeat myself."

During her Queen Radio session on Monday (Aug. 13), Nicki addressed Saunders and said she was prepared to shoot a video to "BAPS" when the song was recorded in 2017. She also had Trina as a guest for Queen Radio at the time of the song's release, making it the most-streamed track on the project.

"I have my own schedule and I also have to worry about what makes not only sense/cents but dollars," she said. "And it's not fair that people don’t understand that. I would never have someone from my team disrespect somebody that has been nothing but real to me.”
