The rapper said both campaigns contacted him and he's working with "whoever's in power."

(CNN)After taking heat for a few days, rapper Ice Cube spoke to CNN on Friday to set the record straight on why he was working with President Donald Trump.

Cube spoke mostly with Chris Cuomo about his "Contract With Black America," a plan he released earlier this year to address racial inequality.

Cube said he has never met Trump and is not trusting either his campaign or Joe Biden's campaign -- he's going by action.

Both campaigns contacted me," Cube said.

"Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America.

One campaign said, 'We love what you have, but let's really dig into after the election. ' And one campaign said 'We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?' And that's what I did, so I didn't run to nobody. "

The entertainer tweeted Wednesday that the Trump campaign made adjustments to "their plan" for Black America after talking to him.

Cube is willing to work with both teams, he said, and with whomever will work with him.

so I'm going to whoever's in power and I'm going to speak to them about our problems, specifically," Cube said, explaining that "our" is referring to Black Americans.

"This is the problem in America, Black people don't own on capital," he said.

On Tuesday, Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser for the President, tweeted that Cube helped develop Trump's "Platinum Plan. "

"Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate," she wrote on Twitter.

"Thank you for leading!"

Ice Cube unveiled his 13-part plan in July, which included points such as police and prison reform and interest free loans for home ownership.
