With the release of The High Note, a film in which he plays opposite Tracee Ellis Ross, Ice Cube is in the midst of doing virtual promotional runs with just about every major media outlet in America, including this one. However, as of this morning, the award-winning rapper and movie star canceled a scheduled appearance on “Good Morning America” due to the ongoing conversation involving the death of George Floyd.

The 50-year-old made the announcement for his 4.9 million followers moments prior to his interview, citing he is “in no mood to tell America, good morning.”

The Big 3 impresario also took it upon himself to address a user who felt Cube could have used the platform to “make a statement.”

As a member of N.W.A., Ice Cube led an all-out assault against local authorities in his native Compton with the seminal hit, “F— The Police” in 1988. As fate would have it, many social media users have adopted the acronym, “FTP” in lieu of Floyd’s untimely death.

I like to describe myself as a pen pro. I believe everything begins with the pen. To no fault of its own, this generation has turned in its pen for a keyboard, but the concept remains the same: Write from the heart… Write from the start.
