They were once tearing up with charts together in Westside Connection, but a falling out caused a divide between Mack 10 and Ice Cube. The California rappers are respected icons in their own rights, but when they came together with WC to create their supergroup, Hip Hop fans ate it up. Their classics "Bow Down," "Gangstas Make the World Go Round," and "Hoo-Bangin'" remain favorites, but don't look forward to a reunion anytime soon.
The trio did reunite for their sophomore effort Terrorist Threats, but that was short-lived. There were rumors of infighting, and Mack later revealed why he got into with Cube. It apparently stemmed from interactions with Cube's brother-in-law, who Mack said wasn't handling his money appropriately. Unfortunately, he further shared in a recent interview with Bootleg Kev that they haven't mended their disagreement.
Mack 10 Talks Ice Cube & Mount Westmore
"I f*ck with who f*ck with me, you dig? That's where I'm at with it," said Mack.
If you f*ck with me, I f*ck with you. But if it's f*ck me, it's f*ck you." He added that he hasn't "seen [Cube] or talked to him in damn near 20 years, so there it is." He also dropped off a few thoughts about Mount Westmore, Cube's latest supergroup that includes Snoop Dogg, E-40, and Too $hort. He admitted to hearing "bits and pieces of it," but hasn't thoroughly checked them out. "Westside Connection was a movement. It was a little different."
Meanwhile, in 2020, Mack 10 seemed open to a Westside Connection reunion. While speaking with the Murder Master Music Show, he was questioned about its potential. "That's the question of the year bro!" he answered. "I don't know man! I'm down, I'm sure Dub is down. "That's the question of the year bro! Somebody probably gotta ask Cube what it is gonna take because I really don't know."
A Previous Attempt At A Reunion
He added that fans consistently questioned him about it. "They ask me in traffic and everywhere," said Mack. "And my answer is the same every day, I don't know. I really don't know." Would you be down to hear another record from Westside Connection?
