Ice Cube, the Hollywood actor and legendary rapper who is not a fan of artificial intelligence, has slammed the technology that’s sweeping the world and creating a new groove for popular culture. Ice Cube has slowly built his reputation with the conservative movement and those rare individuals who have common sense in the middle by confessing all kinds of positions and topics.
According to Breitbart News, Ice Cube believes that artificial intelligence will lead to laziness and creative droughts in the art and entertainment world. Ice Cube made his comments during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God for “The Breakfast Club”.
Ice Cube continued to say, “I think it is wack” during the interview. “I think this is the worst thing ever. I think it will put a lot of people out of work and out of business. It’s going to be more bland. There won’t be any more innovation. It’s going to go the opposite way.”
“People are gonna get lazier. No one is going to work hard or gain the knowledge they need so that they can record it.” “They’re going to ask for knowledge.” “People are only going to get dumber,” said the rapper.
Ice Cube said that artificial intelligence will probably end up in our society, whether we like it or not. He suggested that people who lose their jobs due to technology may be forced to solve problems creatively.
“Look. When they invented the light bulb, the candle maker had to figure out how to make money. So they started making candles that smell like all kinds of stuff to make money. So, adapt. Adapt or die. And that’s just it,” he explained matter-of-factly.
Charlamagne Tha God commented on the impact AI has had on the art world, saying that the work produced by AI might not have depth, even if it appears to be of surface-level quality.
“It sounds good, but it’s not soulful,” Charlamagne said on his show that there was no soul to the music. “There is nothing to it.” This is why I dislike it. This music just doesn’t feel alive to me. It doesn’t seem to be lacking spirit even when it’s done by artists still in the room. It sounds like it has no spirit when the people are no longer here.
Ice Cube’s not the only person who worries about the potential impact of artificial intelligence on the entertainment industry. The Writers Guild of America is concerned about the use of AI in script creation. They went on a strike that lasted until this writing. The writers have good reason to be concerned.
Disney, which has suffered losses after pushing a woke agenda to viewers, used AI to create the opening credits to its Marvel series “Secret Invasion.” It’s a good fit for the company’s new mode of operation since most of the content they’re now putting out is devoid of any soul.
Steven Spielberg, the legendary director, and producer of films and television shows, has expressed his concern about artificial intelligence and its potential to destroy legitimate artistic expressions.
Ice Cube has officially been declared an enemy of Hollywood and the political elite since announcing last month his tour, which was titled “F*** The Gatekeepers”.
“Some of you may not have realized that I’m not part of ‘The Club,’” the rapper revealed. “And a lot of you listening to me right now, you’re not part of ‘The Club’ either. And what I’ve realized with ‘The Club’ is what makes them so mad is when you don’t wanna be a part of their f****** club. That p***** them off. ”
He went a little further saying, “What club am I talking about? I’m talking about the club of gatekeepers that we all got to deal with. You know who they are and they definitely know who they are.”
