Ice Cube joined Dan Sileo on 97.3 The Fan this morning to talk about everything from sports to music. Ice Cube will perform at the Del Mar Racetrack this Sunday.

Cube is, undeniably, one of the grandfathers of gangsta rap. In fact, we don't think it's a stretch to say that NWA is to gangsta rap what the Beatles were to pop rock. Cube approaches the comparison with humility, citing Motown and Parliament Funkadelic as early influences. "It's all a thread and we're just happy to be a part of it," Cube told Sileo.

It wouldn't be a The Fan interview if we didn't tackle at least a couple of sports questions. Watch the interview above to find out how Ice Cube feels about the protest movement Colin Kaepernick spurred in the NFL.
