Recording artist Ice Cube looks on from the audience during week eight of the BIG3 three on three basketball league at Staples Center on August 13, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
Drake’s time at the top of the rap world is coming to an end, according to Ice Cube.
During an interview with Sana G Morning Show, Cube explained that while Drake has had a good run at the top of the game, it might be time for him to come to terms with stepping down.
“He had a good run,” Cube said. “You’ve only got a three year run in the rap game. You’ve only got three years at the tip top of the rap game before you have to find your place in this thing.”
Cube has been in the industry a long, long time, so he’s definitely speaking from experience here. He even admits that three years is about what he was afforded back when he was the greatest in the game.
Pusha T’s cutting diss record, “The Story of Adidon,” seemingly put the hurt on Drake, but Cube doesn’t believe that that’s the sole reason behind Drake’s descent.
“I don’t know if that did it,” said Cube. “I think your reign becomes over, and I think the audience has determined that.”
By that metric, it’s difficult to understand where Cube is getting his reasoning from. Just based on the charts alone, Drake has held the number one position for months now, and his upcoming album, Scorpion, is likely to do huge numbers, diss track or not.
Drake aside, Ice Cube is also keeping busy, not only prepping a new album, but working on the script for the upcoming Friday film as well.
