Ice Cube says Kanye West is “in a good space” after having a controversial year during which he went on numerous anti-Semitic tirades.

“I believe he’s doing great,” the former N.W.A rapper shared on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” Monday.

Cube said that the Yeezy fashion designer is still fighting for access to some of his money, but said West is “in a good space” for the most part.

“I think he’s learned a lot from this past year, and hopefully he’ll come out better on the other side,” the “Straight Outta Compton” rapper explained.

Cube, 54, said he talked to West, 46, about the tirades, in which he glorified Hitler and tweeted about going “death con 3” on Jewish people, and how he approached his feelings the wrong way.

“I felt that if he was really upset with specific people that the message he was saying would kind of hijack what he’s really upset about,” the “Friday” star said.

“That’s kind of what happened. You just can’t generalize, you have to be specific especially if you’re taking about anybody or any race.”

Cube doubled down that West should have specified exactly whom he was talking about instead of generalizing “race.”

The “Jesus Walks” rapper and Cube had a falling out last year when the former claimed on “Drink Champs” that Cube had “really influenced” him to “get on this anti-Semite vibe.”

The “Ride Along” star immediately took to Twitter to dispel West’s claims.

“I hate that my name was dragged into this Drunk Champs bulls–t,” Cube tweeted last October. “I don’t know what Ye meant by his statements, you’re gonna have to ask him.

“I didn’t put the batteries in his back. Please leave my name out of all the antisemitic talk. I’m not antisemitic and never have been.”

While appearing on the British broadcaster’s show, the “F–k tha Police” rapper said he and West remained “cool” but he took umbrage with the fact that the “All of the Lights” performer didn’t explain “what he meant.”

“So I had to rebut that,” Cube added.
