Ice Cube Weighs in on Obama's Musical Performances

HyperVocal contributor Liz Glover sat down with the rapper/actor/director Ice Cube during his recent trip to D.C. to promote his new movie, 21 Jump Street. They also discussed Obama's singing career and the presidential campaign. Ice thinks Obama needs to work on his stage presence -- "He looked like he was ready to give it up too soon. When you grab the mic, grab it tight. Don't cover the crown" -- but says he'd sign the prez to a record deal anyway.

"Yeah, I'd sign him!" he says. "If he wants to come sing the blues, we can incorporate some hip-hop into that."
