Cube also breaks down new songs Man Vs Machine and Hood Robbin. “[‘Man Vs. Machine’] is talking about our obsessions with machinery and how it’s taking over. Automation is taking over human beings in all our relevancy in this world. Pretty soon, machines are gonna take over and that’s just real,” Cube tells HardKnock.TV. “It’s happening in all of our lives. If electricity went out, and you couldn’t use these things, these gadgets that ya’ll using right now, we’d be back in the stone age.” “[Hood Robbin’] is talking about how big corporations is now stealing from the poor and giving to the rich,” the rapper explains. “It’s a whole thing about the things we’re going up against with housing and medical insurance … just everything people are going through. Real sh** that ain’t got nothing to do with money, cars, [and] all the sh** most rappers talk about.” He finishes off part one of this interview by addressing how LA has changed since he put out Wicked in 1991 and says that we still have to work on Black and Brown relations because we are all in the same shit.
