Mack 10 Says He & Ice Cube Haven't Spoken In Nearly 20 Years

In an interview with Bootleg Kev, former Westside Connection member Mack 10 said that he and Ice Cube haven't spoken in nearly two decades.

Despite their Westside Connection ties, Mack 10 and Ice Cube haven't reconciled in nearly two decades. In a recent interview with Bootleg Kev, Mack, legal name Dedrick D'Mon Rolison, shared that his relationships with Cube has been on ice since the mid-2000s.

“I fuck with who fuck with me, you dig? That’s where I’m at with it. If you fuck with me, I fuck with you. But if it’s fuck me, it’s fuck you,” the 51-year-old said. “I ain’t seen him or talked to him in damn near 20 years, so there it is."

While Rolison admitted that he heard "bits and pieces" of Cube's Mount Westmore album with Snoop Dogg, E-40 and Too $hort, he insisted that Westside Connection – which also included WC – "was a movement."

In the mid-90s, Westside Connection joined forces for their 1996 album Bow Down, returning in 2003 with second and final album Terrorist Threats. Two years later, Rolison would quit the group after a falling-out with Cube.

In an interview with VladTV in 2020, Rolison spoke on his departure from Westside Connection, detailing that he had a financial rift with Cube's brother-in-law.

“It was just an unfortunate situation, as far as what came out of all that,” he said. “It ain’t like that just happened … I went to Cube about four or five times before the conflict jumped off and told him to correct the situation. That’s the part that everybody leaves out.”

He added, “If it was my wife’s brother, I would’ve told him he can’t fuck my money up and he can’t be out of line with nobody I’m getting down with. And if you got that big of a problem with him, stay at home. My wife’s brother wouldn’t have stopped shit for me, with him.”
