Ice Cube On AI Music: "I Don't Wanna Hear That Bullshit"

While the recent advancements in technology certainly have their benefits, it's hard to deny that some of them are terrifying. Over the past few months, an increased number of artificial intelligence-generated music has been coming to the forefront, whether in the form of artists covering unlikely songs (such as Drake on Ice Spice's "Munch (Feelin' U)") or using the voices of dead rhymers to cover tracks from other artists made long after their passing. We've heard several public figures using their platform to voice the dangers of AI. The latest is Ice Cube, who candidly shared his opinion during this past Friday's (May 19) episode of the Full Send podcast.

After one of the hosts asked the NWA alum if he heard the recently circulating The Weeknd and Drake AI collaboration, Cube made it abundantly clear that he "doesn't want to hear" such things. When it was argued that "everyone on the internet" has been listening to the track, the Californian shot back, "Yeah, I don't wanna hear that bullshit. He should sue whoever made it." When it was suggested that the technology is coming for his career too, he made it known that he won't hesitate to take legal action against anyone who tries.

"Yeah, and I'mma sue the muthaf*cka who made it and the people and the platform who play it," the "No Vaseline" hitmaker declared. "It's like a sample, you know what I mean? Somebody can't take your original voice and manipulate it without having to pay."

As HipHopDX notes, others who have spoken out about their issues with AI lately include "We all have voices, and everyone's compromised because there are no rights or ownership to your facial math or your voice frequency," he told DJ Whoo Kid on SiriusXM, addressing the dangers that face everyday people too. "So, forget songs. Banks. People calling up your bank pretending to be you."
