The N.W.A. icon kept his cool when talking about the snub saying he “can’t be mad.” He continued, “I’m not pissed. I’m not surprised. It’s the Oscars, you know. They do what they do.” Cube did open up about one huge honor N.W.A. will receive this year however; being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. When Williams asked if he would have been disappointed to not have been inducted he said;

“It is nice to be recognized, but N.W.A is anti-establishment so we’re used to people trying to dismiss what we gotta say, used to the industry looking down on us. We were the black sheeps of the industry and we used to it. If we didn’t get nominated, that would be familiar territory.”
