Ice Cube Slams AI-Generated Music, Says He’ll Sue Anyone Who Replicates His Voice w/o Permission: ‘I Don’t Want To Hear That Bullsh*t’
Safe to say we won’t hear an AI version of Ice Cube anytime soon.
During a recent interview, the “Barbershop” star made it clear he has no intentions of supporting AI-Generated music and will take legal action against anyone who illegally tries to involve him with it.
Reportedly, the conversation began after the interviewer asked the entertainer, real name O’Shea Jackson Sr., 53, about his thoughts on the AI version of Drake covering Ice Spice’s hit tune “Munch (Feelin’ You).” Drake previously reacted to the anonymous creation, writing on his Instagram story:
“This is the final straw AI.”

Speaking on the topic, Ice Cube stated:
“I don’t want to hear an AI Drake song. I don’t want to hear that b*******t. He should sue whoever made it.”
The “Friday” creator continued and shared what he plans to do if he ever catches someone attempting to replicate his own voice with AI.
“And I’m gonna sue the m*********er who make it, too, and the people behind the platform who play it. It’s like a sample. Somebody can’t take your original voice and manipulate it without having to pay.”
Ice Cube’s reservations with the advanced software seem to be aligned with major music labels.
Universal Musical Group quickly removed the computer-made Drake song as well as another AI record made with the voice of The Weeknd from streaming platforms. Additionally, the music powerhouse reportedly expressed its concerns with Apple Music, Youtube, and Spotify, urging them to ban companies that use AI from accessing copyrighted songs. They wrote in an official statement:
“We have become aware that certain AI systems might have been trained on copyrighted content without obtaining the required consents from, or paying compensation to, the rights holders who own or produce the content…We will not hesitate to take steps to protect our rights and those of our artists.”
