Rapper Ice Cube Says Donald Trump Needs to Be Locked Up

'Ride Along' and 'Friday' star said president should be arrested — he wants to see someone different in office

Rapper and actor Ice Cube believes President Donald Trump belongs behind bars.

The “Friday” and “Ride Along” star tore into the commander-in-chief in a Wednesday interview with American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan.

“You know, everybody got [their] policies, everybody got they, you know, wacky ways about the way things should go — but at the end of the day, there has to be class,” the 49-year-old artist said about Trump.

Cube said he wants someone with a different delivery style than Trump to run for the White House in 2020.

“I just wanna see somebody that … at least somebody with some class in there that can hopefully help bring the country together a little more.”

Ice Cube continued, “I know it’s always gonna be, Democrats, Republicans, like Bloods and Crips — but, for the most part, somebody who can … who says compromise is not a bad word.”

Cube then said the president’s famous “lock her up” statements about failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton need to be turned on him.

“They said lock her up — they need to lock him up,” he said.

Asked if the president should be impeached, Cube replied, “Well, I think we should see all the evidence … I mean, it seems like it’s time right now any damn way. He just needs to be — not re-elected.”

The rapper also tore into Kanye West and his support for the current sitting president.

“I don’t like it. I think it’s a misguided partnership,” said Ice Cube.

“I don’t want to see Kanye hanging out with the president.”

Cube said he would never visit President Trump because he has “nothing to say” to him.

Cube’s interview with Ryan was meant to promote his latest album, “Everythang’s Corrupt.”

The album features an anti-Trump song that called for his arrest.

The song, titled “Arrest the President,” has lyrics that read, “Arrest the president, you got the evidence. That n**** is Russian intelligence. When it rains it pours. Did you know the new white was orange? Boy, you’re showing your horns.”

Ice Cube is best known as one of the members of the rap group N.W.A.

After that band, he went on to the rap group Westside Connection — and he has since focused on solo work and his acting career.

He most recently starred in the films “Ride Along,” “Ride Along 2,” “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage,” and “Barbershop: The Next Cut.”

He’ll next be producing a reboot of the comedy television series “Celebrity Deathmatch,” which ran from 1998 until 2007 and features clay figures of celebrities engaging in fictional fights.
