Sometimes you got to start somewhere. And it’s cool, as long as where you start is not where you plan on finishing.

I was given the name by my brother when I was about eleven or twelve years old. He was older than me, and around that age I was starting to get into girls, and when they would call the house for him, and when he was not there, I would try to talk to them. I was trying to be the man and trying to get them to come and see me, not worrying about him. When he found out… he started calling me Ice Cube as a joke because he said I was trying to be too cool. I just liked it and started telling everybody in the hood “my name is Ice Cube.”

And that’s the kind of relationship you want, not a standard.
