Iconic Rapper Ice Cube is coming to the defense of Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Dak Prescott.
Ice Cube has spoken up for Pres. Trump and also talked against some of the stuff our Commander-in-chief has said in the past but supporting Prescott who publicly stated he would stand for the National Anthem and wouldn’t take part in the protests pushed by other NFL players.
Ice Cube carries a lot of weight within the urban community. He’s been on the streets; he’s been a major force within the music industry. When he speaks, people listen, and he is a very logical, strategical voice.
This mural is painted in downtown Dallas. It depicts Prescott crying as if they were mocking him for his beliefs.

Ice Cube, who is out touting his BIg3 basketball league and doing the interview rounds, said Prescott should stand his ground and not be controlled by other people’s opinions.
“You should do what you feel. That’s whats supposed to be great about being in America, you do what you feel,” said Cube, speaking to an Atlanta newspaper. “You don’t have to be in lock step with anybody. Not the community, not with the coach, not the owner. You do what you feel. And when you do that, sometimes you gotta let the chips fall where they may and live with your decision.”
Ice Cube, no stranger to controversy himself, said problems ensue when you allow the crowd to make your decisions.
“What I think he’s doing is what everybody should probably do, is make a decision and live with that and roll with that. At a certain point, it becomes everybody else’s problem. Not his. It’s only his problem if he allows it to be; if he allows somebody to change his position. You gotta live with the decision.”

There is something that happens to someone when they invest their time and energy into a business. When they have worked their entire life for something.

I am proud of Ice Cube standing up for Dak. I don’t remember seeing one NFL player protesting during their time in the NFL offseason. That should tell you what’s up.
