Despite Shyne's criticism of Kendrick Lamar's new album, "good kid, m.A.A.d city", Ice Cube has had nothing but positive things to say about the work. Cube thinks Kendrick's album is great and what fans have been waiting for.
"It's great, man. It's great for true artists who are not people who are chasing the charts or worried about who's on the Billboard [charts]. You can respect an artist like that. We are like painters; you either do it because you love it or you do it 'cause you're trying to get rich. I think people can see that, and they reward true talent. When true talent steps on the scene, it should be rewarded, whether it's deep music that grips your soul or it's just booty-shaking music. If you're a true original, you should be recognized and applauded to reap the benefits more than these one-hitter-quitters that you see."
