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

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.

"I made some (expletive) horrible mistakes in my life,'' Dre told the magazine. 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 defense of these despicable females," he said.
