Ice Cube Changes Stage Name to Water
Ice Cube, a founding member of the hip-hop group N.W.A., has made waves in the news after announcing that he would be changing his professional name to Water after learning about climate change. The announcement, which was posted on Instagram, featured a screenshot of a page typed on the Notes app urging fans to take action. He captioned the post: “If the glaciers are melting, so will I.”
Water claims that fans haven’t fully come around to his idea. When asked about backlash, Water said, “Last week someone told me they loved my flow. But do they love how the glaciers are melting and flowing into the ocean?”
“It’s inspiring to see a celebrity be so public about climate change in this day and age,” said Grandmaster Flash, a renowned DJ. “He’s encouraging others in the music industry to follow in his footsteps.”
“Other rappers like Ice T need to raise awareness,” said Water. Ice T has not answered requests for a response.
