Ice Cube isn’t losing sleep over the death of ex-manager Jerry Heller.

Heller, who died on Friday at 75, served as the manager of Cube’s former group N.W.A. and the two had a rocky relationship embroiled with financial drama.

“I ain’t going to pop no champagne, but I ain’t gonna shed no tears either, it is what it is,” Ice Cube told a Detroit radio station over the weekend.

“I’m not losing no sleep over it,” the 47-year-old added.

Heller was largely credited with giving N.W.A. their start in the music industry — and making way for the West Coast hip hop scene.

However, when radio host Big Greg commented that Heller was the reason for N.W.A.’s existence, Cube stopped him in his tracks.

“Whoa watch your mouth, watch your mouth, watch your mouth,” he said.

Ice Cube and fellow groupmate Dr. Dre quit N.W.A. because of their relationship with Heller, even claiming the music exec swindled them out of thousands of dollars.
