Ice Cube Reacts To Death Of Ex-N.W.A. Manager Jerry Heller


(Radio.com) Hip hop manager Jerry Heller, known for helping the late Eazy-E form Ruthless Records and overseeing the rise of N.W.A., died over the weekend, and while some, including Eazy's daughter E.B. Wright, grieved his loss, N.W.A. rapper and lyricist Ice Cube wasn't too bummed.

'I ain't gonna pop no champagne, but I ain't gonna shed no tears either," he told a Detroit radio station. "It is what it is. We come here to pass, and he's outta here. I'm not losing no sleep over that one."

It's well-known that there was no love lost between Heller and Cube. For a while, there was even bad blood between Cube and the rest of N.W.A, allegedly due to Heller's mismanagement. In 1989, the rapper left the group due to royalty disputes. Read more here.
