Debunked Myth of the Day: So, was Ice Cube’s “good day” Jan. 20th, 1992, as Donovan Strain’s research indicates, or Nov. 30th, 1988, as a rival theory suggests? If you ask the man himself, he’ll say both. And neither.
Moviefone recently spoke with the Are We There Yet? star about the Internet’s exhaustive analysis of his 1993 hit single, hoping to learn the truth about the enigmatic date.
Sadly, Ice Cube put the chill on both guesses, saying, “I think I had a good day on both of those days,” and shooting down speculation that he was rapping about a specific day.
“It’s a fictional song,” Mr. Cube said. ”It’s basically my interpretation of what a great day would be. Do you know what I’m saying? So, you know, it’s a little of this and a little of that. I don’t think you can pinpoint the day.”
So, wait — does that mean there never was a Goodyear blimp that read “Ice Cube’s a pimp”? My entire life has been predicated on a lie.
