Ice Cube

Reflects on the 80's and share his approach to his new album with Eric Spitznagel of Vanity Fair:

What do you miss the most about the old-school days?
The individuality. People were in their own groups. They didn’t ball and steal styles. You had to be unique to make it. Now, you gotta be cookie cutter to make it.

What about jheri curls? Are they poised for a comeback?
I actually seen a kid with a jheri curl the other day. It might be on its way back. You’re laughing but I’m serious. I think sooner or later, it’s all going to be back. It’s gonna be Hammer time once again.

Who rocked the curls better, you or Philip Michael Thomas?
Me! Phillip Michael’s shit was dry. He had an afro curl. My shit hung in back!
