The N.W.A rapper received criticism after revealing that he met with the Trump administration to discuss incorporating his Contract With Black America (CWBA) into Trump’s Platinum Plan, which promises to increase access to capital in Black communities by almost $500 billion over the next four years.
Later in the show, Michael Che brought up Cube again during “Weekend Update,” or as Che joked, “Trump’s FUBU Platinum Plan for the Black community.”
“I love Ice Cube but you know how many jobs he had on top of negotiating for Black people?” asked Cube. “You know why Malcolm and Martin were such great leaders? Because they weren’t also working on Barbershop 4.”
