Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp
And it read "Ice Cube's a Pimp"
Ah, the icing on the cake! The Goodyear Tire company has a fleet of blimps it leases out advertising purposes; they sometimes have an LED scroll bar on the side that reads announcements (like “Vote for Zev Yaroslavski” or “Ice Cube’s a pimp”)
In the movie Scarface, Tony Montana saw a blimp to displaying “the World is Yours.” (this probably gave Ice Cube the idea)
In fact, the fantastic nature of this particular claim implies that the entire song may have been a dream. Life in South Central LA is never like this.
