Dr Dre and Ice Cube deny charges of misogyny in new interview

New York — Dr Dre and Ice Cube denied long-standing charges of misogyny against N.W.A in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The new N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton has resurrected debate about N.W.A's lyrics and representations of women, as well as Dr Dre's 1991 assault against TV personality Dee Barnes.

Dre told the magazine: "I made some (expletive) horrible mistakes in my life." He said he's paid for it and will never "make another mistake like that again".

In 1992, Dre plead guilty to charges from the incident. He was later unapologetic, saying: "It ain't no big thing. I just threw her through a door."

Ice Cube said their music distinguishes between "upstanding ladies" and "bitches".

"Don't be jumping to the defence of these despicable females," he said.
