Ice Cube Speaks Out Against AI in Music: "AI is demonic"

The former N.W.A rapper-turned-actor O’Shea ‘Ice Cube‘ Jackson Sr. has expressed his strong views on artificial intelligence (AI) in music.

He specifically addressed the attention-grabbing viral track titled "Heart on My Sleeve." This track garnered controversy as it utilized AI-generated vocals to mimic the voices of Drake and The Weeknd, namely Aubrey Graham and Abel Tesfaye, respectively.

Speaking on the Full Send podcast, Ice Cube believes AI is demonic and anticipates a backlash from genuine people. He specifically referred to the controversial viral track titled 'Heart on my Sleeve', which employed AI recreations of Drake and The Weeknd's voices.

"I think that's terrible," the rapper stated, "I don't wanna hear that bullshit. [Drake] should sue whoever made it."

Drake has not yet commented on the creation of 'Heart on my Sleeve', but he did share his opinion on another track that imitated the voice of Isis Naija "Ice Spice" Gaston in April.

"This is the last straw," Drake posted on Instagram at the time.

The growing prominence of AI technology raises concerns for many music labels, including UMG. The company emphasized its moral and commercial responsibility to protect its artists by preventing unauthorized use of their music and stopping platforms from hosting infringing content.
