Ice Cube revealed he had a feud with children’s television icon Mr. Rogers after his first solo album came out in 1990.

The 50-year-old musician hosted an Instagram Live listening party Wednesday to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his album “AmeriKKKA’s Most Wanted,” and there he recounted a friction he had with the late TV star over a sound bite used in the track “A Gangsta’s Fairytale.”

The article goes on to state the following:

He explained that Fred Rogers took issue with the song using the theme song to “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” titled “Won’t You Be My Neighbor.”

In the Instagram post (see below), Cube said:

“I actually wrote this for Eazy-E. But y’all know what it is, we wasn’t getting down at the time so I had to take it myself.”

“It’s a trip, because, off this song, Mr. Rogers sued us. He was mad because we had the ‘Mister Rogers’ theme at the beginning of this s—. ‘It’s a Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood’ and all that.”

The report notes that Rogers taught “generations of children about kindness and other important life lessons through songs and heart-to-heart talks.”

He died in 2003 from stomach cancer when he was 74.
