After Ice Cube left N.W.A and went solo, his very first album was “Death Certificate”. The album contained the song “True to the Game” in which Cube rapped:
Cause soon as y’all get some dough
Ya wanna put a white bitch on your elbow
Moving out your neighborhood
But I walk through the ghetto and the flavor’s good
Little kids jumping on me
But you, you wanna be white and corny
Living way out
“Nigger go home”, spray painted on your house
Man thought those lyrics were aimed at Black professional athletes, which they were, but there was also aimed at his former friend Dr. Dre.
What was missing from Cube’s lyrics and also missing from the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ movie, is the beating Dr. Dre used to lay down on Black women. His wife has never complained about Dr. Dre hitting her, so it is safe to say, those beatings were reserved for Black women only.
Today, Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, apologized for all the Black women he has beaten. “Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years, and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way,” he told 18 Karat Reggae. “I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.”
Maybe that doing everything he can includes staying away from Black women, because there is just something about Black women, once you are around them, you have to beat them
Dr. Dre added to 18 Karat Reggae: “I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.”
Earlier this month, Dre did an interview with Rolling Stone in which he said he’d made “horrible mistakes” against women. “I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true — some of them are,” he told Rolling Stone. “Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really fucked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”
Earlier, Dre acknowledged the abuse but was dismissive about it. After he was charged with assault in 1991 against then-television host Dee Barnes, he told Rolling Stone he “just threw her through a door” and that it was “no big thing.”
Yes, no big deal, after all, she is just a Black Woman.
