Ice Cube does video about Jamiel Shaw Feat. Musiq Soulchild called "why me?" Begining line he says, "smoked a nigga for nothing" while holding a photo of Jamiel Shaw. They shot the video in Antelope Valley. I actually was a middle person who got Ice Cube's people on the phone with the Shaw family. They shot the video in August.

Poor Jamiel. He was just acting out like most good kids with some heart do growing up. No way he deserved anything that happened to him.

I really hope this album gets more airplay than Smile Now, Laugh Later. Ice Cube has really come full circle. My only complaint is that I wish he'd stop the misogynist lyrics. But what he does is a far cry better than what's on the radio. It's going to be a tough nut for him to crack. Radio is now owned by people who have no use for songs like "why me". Game comes close with his new one but it's mostly about himself. The industry today wants whatever is going to influence kids to by clothes and cars. Cube's music just doesn't tap into that part of the brain. It makes people think. The industry has no use for that. But he has to keep trying. Keep pushing through.

I agree. I saw Shaw's Myspace page too. Cube should have gotten the family of a Mexican victim on the video, too, to balance it out. This song advocates peace, but the first verse, and thus first segment of the video, only gives one side of the story. That's not going to sit well with Mexicans, and to advocate peace you have to let all sides have a voice.
