Cube, who grew up in Chicago in the ’80s and got his first exposure to hip-hop through his father, told GMA anchor Robin Roberts he tested positive on Friday
During his interview with Roberts he also opened up about having had health problems earlier in life and the toll that the coronavirus has had on his life.
‘I’ve lost almost everything… I lost a lot of money,’ he said. ‘But it’s nothing compared to what people are going through… I lost almost a million dollars because I said I will not get tested for COVID-19.’
‘I got tested and they said I was positive. I had no reason to be positive for anything,’ he said.
‘I feel like they’re trying to make a case here,’ he said as he asked Roberts if she was surprised. ‘I said “No, I was positive, they are saying I’m positive”.’
The 53-year-old rapper said people are trying to make a case against him. ‘I said “That’s fine I’m not going to apologize”. I mean I did make a mistake… There’s nothing wrong with saying you’re positive, but when you really are positive you should not say you are positive.
