Ice Cube Sounds Alarm on AI: Threat to Creativity and Productivity

July 20, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Ice Cube, the renowned Hip Hop artist, recently voiced his opposition to artificial intelligence and its potential impact on creativity, reports Hip Hop DX.

In an interview with Piers Morgan on Monday (July 17), the former NWA rapper strongly expressed his disapproval of AI’s ability to mimic styles and personalities without any human involvement.

“Could you imagine if I decided not to do a sequel and the movie company said, ‘We have the rights to your likeness. We gon’ put you in this sequel whether you want to be or not ’cause we have the right to.’

“So now they use AI to put Ice Cube in a movie I don’t want to be in, saying things I don’t wanna say and doin’ thing I wouldn’t do, so to me, that’s terrible … or taking an artist that’s passed away and having him do a new song with lyrics that they may not agree with — it’s a slippery slope that will hurt us more than it will help us.”

“I think it’s terrible,” Ice Cube said. “I think it’s gon’ make people lazier, less creative.”
