Ice Cube, an entertainment mogul, believes it’s a “personal decision” between Trump and Biden, despite signs that the former president is gaining support.

“I think it’s a personal decision. I don’t know if they care if any rappers or entertainers get up there and say anything. It’s really a personal decision,” he shared with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Monday.

“People know who Trump is. People know who Biden is. They’re going to make their decision no matter who gets up there and pushes whatever agenda they want,” he continued. Jeff Kwatinetz, the league’s president, chimed in on Monday, too.

“I think that people have realized that neither party really speaks for minorities, maybe for the Black audience, and it comes down to who they think will really help them on the issues that they care about,” he mentioned.

“I think it’s underestimated how much people care about the economy. We all know people care about the economy and immigration, but I think people think the Black community and the minority community is monolithic. They don’t realize that people have a lot of different opinions,” he elaborated. 

When talk shifted to the economy, Ice Cube highlighted the importance of small businesses in American life, shining a spotlight on BIG3 as a prime example of a small business blossoming into a big one.

“It’s a league that we kind of started from scratch in 2017. We’ve been, for eight years, growing this league, and, and it’s not been easy. We had to go through COVID,” he explained.

“A lot of small businesses need a little helping hand to get over the hump, so anything that could be done on the government level to help the small businesses, of course, is going to be welcome, because the small businesses are really what makes up the American lifestyle,” he emphasized.
