Ice Cube

STILL RELUCTANT TO TALK

ABOUT BREAKUP OF N.W.A.

8/8/2011 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808_ice_cube_tmz_video_exIt's been 22 YEARS since Ice Cube left N.W.A. over a nasty money dispute -- but yesterday in L.A., the rapper still didn't want to talk about it.

You may recall ... Ice dropped out of the rap group in 1989, claiming their manager had stiffed him out of royalties. The remaining N.W.A. members -- including Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and MC Ren -- RIPPED Ice Cube in their subsequent albums.

The rappers seemed to bury the hatchet after Eazy-E's death in 1995 -- but based on the clip, it seems it's still a sore subject.

Thankfully, he was game to talk about one thing ... his upcoming movie "21 Jump Street."

If he was going to talk about it for the first time I'm guessing it would be with someone like Oprah, not a moron with a camera that runs up to him on the street.

Cube has no reason to explain, he already said it all, true fans actually listened to "no Vaseline", the greatest dis -rap on record. If you need an explaination you don't deserve one, "Game is to be sold not told", Tupac.

Its only a sore subject to TMZ for not getting a juicy scoop...

I would figure people in your office would get this story right... Did you guys forget Dre left right after Cube? Yes Dre did 100 miles and runnin but more happened than what you guys are reporting..

Cube left over being screwed and at that time was pissed at EazyE but got over it. He is still pissed at that manager who ****** them all and that with Eazy passing away makes it sore..

Even if you hated someone you would show a little respect and bury the BS now that they are gone. No reason to bring it up and make Eazy look bad or something when he can't even defend himself.
