The Death Of Former Manager Jerry Heller
However, considering decades-old beef between Heller and Ice Cube, everyone was curious if the rapper would ever speak up on the matter.
Jerry Heller passed away over the weekend following a car crash, which may have come after he suffered a medical emergency.
Shortly after Heller’s death, his lawyer stated that he “would be alive today” if it weren’t for the release of the Straight Outta Compton biopic.
After his departure from N.W.A, Ice Cube was critical of Heller, going in on his former manager with a scathing diss track called “No Vaseline” in 1991.
In regards to performing with the likes of MC Ren and DJ Yella almost 30 years after N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton album was released, Ice Cube expressed his amazement at the feat.
“It’s fun because we all know where we came from,” he said. “We all know our humble beginnings. When we were trying to get to this level. And to still be here on this day, so many years after the release of Straight Outta Compton. It’s amazing that people still wanna see us.”
