I never have dinner with the President
I never have dinner with the President
I never have dinner with the President

from Ice Cube – No Vaseline Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In March 1991, Eazy-E paid $2500 to get in to a luncheon benefiting the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle hosted by then-President George H. W. Bush, and did not seem to cause any trouble while there. Eazy was invited due to his numerous donations to L.A.-area charities

Of course, with Obama in the White House, it’s quite possible that Ice Cube has broken his promise already!

Eazy says:

Hell no [I’m not a Republican], I don’t give a shit really. How could I do a song like ‘Fuck the Police’ and be a Republican? I guess you can really, but I don’t even vote. I just went cause those muthafuckers sent me an invitation. They pulled my name off the computer cause I give a lot of money to charities and stuff. Soon as I got there CBS and other news stations were all there askin' how you guys gonna let him get in there. It was a whole big mess, on every station. I just wanted to go, see what they was talking about, just to see. I get home, everybody was like “Oh so you’re a Republican, blah blah.” Hell no, I ain’t no Republican. They was talking about the fuckin' war and how this and how that, it was bullshit.
