Ice Cube, the iconic rapper and actor, shared his strong views on the state of modern rap and its intersection with artificial intelligence (AI).

Ice Cube pulls no punches as he voices his negative verdict on AI, describing it as “demonic” and predicting a backlash from real and authentic individuals. He also criticizes the impact of AI on music, expressing concern that it is making everything sound artificial, paralleling the effect of vocalists relying heavily on Auto-Tune.

During the conversation, Ice Cube specifically targets a song called “heart on my sleeve,” which utilizes AI-generated vocals in the style of Drake and The Weeknd. He harshly dismisses the track, stating his aversion to it and suggesting that legal action should be taken against those responsible for its creation.

What truly grabs attention is Ice Cube’s bold statement when the possibility of an AI-generated Ice Cube song is mentioned. He vehemently vows to sue not only the creators of such a song but also the streaming platforms that host it and even the listeners themselves. This assertive stance demonstrates his unwavering commitment to protecting his artistic integrity and combatting the dissemination of music that he perceives as inauthentic.

While the legal implications regarding potential action against listeners remain uncertain, the music industry has witnessed success in pressuring streaming platforms to remove content that imitates established artists. Universal Music Group (UMG) notably compelled Spotify and TikTok to remove the aforementioned song, “heart on my sleeve,” citing copyright violations and breaches of agreements. UMG continues to push for stronger measures against the abundance of AI-assisted music saturating streaming libraries.

Ice Cube’s outspoken rejection of AI-generated music reflects his unwavering dedication to preserving the genuine essence of the art form. As he continues to stand against what he perceives as a “demonic” influence on the industry, the repercussions and implications of this ongoing debate on the future of music remain intriguing.
