Ice Cube would make a great study buddy in English class.

In order to promote the largely meh-received N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, Ice Cube teamed up with Vanity Fair for a video in which he evaluates Rap Genius users' interpretations of the song "Straight Outta Compton."

For the most part, the interpretations are right, but he calls the users on a few mistakes, such as misintepreting his threat to cook his enemies in his gumbo along with the sausage as a threat to cook his enemies in his gumbo instead of the sausage (gumbo often features more than one meat, so that makes sense). I feel like this would be a great thing for other rappers to do in order to help people connect with their work, especially Ghostface Killah; "scooby snack jurassic plastic gas booby trap" still has me scratching my head.
