26 Years in the Game
Fire Stays Lit
“Romance and sex doesn’t have to fade. I still want her to look at me and say ‘this is the man I still want to be with.’ So [you] have to keep yourself up, your P’s and Q’s and go for what you know,” he said.
Groupies: No Challenge
Though rappers are known for being easily seduced by groupies, that’s not a challenge for Cube. “Sex isn’t overly important to me. Respect and freedom and prosperity are what I care about,” he said. “Freedom for myself, that is. You gotta start with yourself.”
The secret to staying married is…
Cube told People magazine the secret to staying in a long-lasting marriage, especially in the hip-hop industry:
“I think you’ve got to be friends first. A lot of people get together and they want to go and do their thing and jump right into a relationship, but I think that’s the wrong approach,” he said. “You’ve got to have somebody that you’re cool with, that you’re friends with, and then start the relationship.”
He adds… the industry seems fun but it’s always good to have someone help reel reality back in.
