Controversial rapper-turned-controversial political firebrand Ice Cube has announced that he’s expanding his “Contract with Black America” to tackle unique issues facing Black women in sports today.
In a press release announcement, it was revealed that the “Are We There Yet?” star expanded his Contract with Black America in partnership with lawyer and activist, Kamilah Moore, and lawyer, Maureen Simmons. With their help, the man born O’Shea Jackson provides both legislative remedies and guiding principles to tackle these problems.

“Under the Sports Industry Economic Development Plan – CWBA Sports Initiative, the contract outlines solutions to the systemic racism engulfing sports today,” reads the announcement. “With a focus on professional and collegiate levels, the recommended action items call for leagues and national governing bodies to work together in order to foster the economic growth of Black-owned businesses and overall workforce.”
Previously, Ice Cube revealed that the Biden administration had reached out to him to discuss the Contract with Black America, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the Biden administration was taking any legislative action based on the proposals. Ice Cube also previously came under fire for his perceived willingness to work so closely with the Trump administration, a claim he denied in an extensive video that you can see below.
