Ice Cube has never had the most cordial relationship with the Jewish community.
In 1991, the Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned his album “Death Certificate,” noting that many lyrics were racist and one of the songs called for the murder of a Jewish music industry figure.
His song “No Vaseline” has been criticized for its line directed at his former group NWA, which he says
“let a white Jew tell them what to do.”
So its said a rabbi and Ice Cube walk into a casino, and the rabbi catches an anti-Semitic fueled ass whuppin’ at least that’s what the rabbi’s claiming, but Cube says that’s a load of crap.
P. Taras, who says he’s a rabbi & he was at the MGM in Detroit on May 24 when he literally bumped into Cube outside an elevator.
Taras claims he said something like hey, watch out and the rapper/actor responded by having his boys attack.
While he was getting stomped, Taras claims he heard several epithets.
He thinks that’s because he was wearing a yarmulke.
Taras has filed a lawsuit against Cube for assault and battery, and wants $2 million for his troubles.
Ice Cube’s rep says,
“Not only are these accusations a lie, he doesn’t even know who this guy is.”
Ice Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson is in the middle of helping publicize an upcoming biopic about NWA, but he might not be able to rap his way out of this debacle.
