In the 20-plus years since Ice
Cube decided to focus on movies,
he s taken on key roles in filmmak-
ing---acting, writing, even directing.
But it s his work as a producer that s
given him the most satisfaction---
and perhaps the most success.
It was Ice Cube who made the
decision to cast superhot Kevin Hart
for his buddy flick Ride Along, which
was key in helping the film gross
over $140 million since its mid-Jan-
"We had the movie for five or six
years and we saw Kevin Hart blowing
up. We knew we could throw a few
folks in that I d worked with in the
past, but we wanted it to feel fresh.
It became a dream team," he said
during a recent interview. "Being No
1 for three weeks is something we
weren t expecting. To be the cream
of the crop is no easy feat. It s a big
deal. I ve been on cloud nine."
Ride Along is the latest in a line
of film hits for the 44-year-old rap
legend, who got his start in the gritty,
Oscar-nominated Boyz n the Hood.
He s responsible for cult classics like
Friday and The Players Club, starred
in kiddie-friendly flicks like Are We
There Yet? and, in addition to the
sequel to Ride Along, is working on
a film with a subject he knows plenty
Ice Cube talked about his film-
making career, rap and his legendary
group s omission from the most
recent class of the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame during an interview
with The Associated Press.
Q: You ve appeared in everything
from dramas like Higher Learning
and Three Kings to comedies and
kiddie movies like The Longshots.
Which genre do you prefer?
Ice Cube: It s easier for me to get
comedies made because of my track
record. Everybody needs to find their
niche. I love dramas, but I under-
stand that I am still just a young
man in moviemaking. I know there
will be some time to get back to that.
You re still recording music, but
why make the transition to also
making movies in the 1990s? Were
you seeing that music wasn t as
The creative process of making a
movie really turned me on. I d started
getting behind the scenes with a
camcorder and VHS tape when
making music videos. But when I
did Boyz n the Hood with John Sin-
gleton, I saw someone my age who
was really doing it behind the scenes.
I felt like I needed to be doing it on
that level. (John) challenged me to
start writing. My first two scripts
sucked, but my third was Friday.
But unlike John Singleton, you
chose to focus on the humour in
your South Central Los Angeles
Growing up in my neighbourhood,
the comedy was right there. Friday
was our look at the neighbourhood:
Dope-dealing out of an ice-cream
truck, crackheads, drive-by shoot-
ings---how bad is that? But it was
actually fun at times. That is what
the movie was conveying. It was
how we saw the neighbourhood ver-
sus how the news saw the neigh-
When casting Kevin Hart in Ride
Along, which you produced and
also starred in, it seems you foresaw
his massive success. When did the
conversation start about making
the Ride Along sequel?
When the studio saw the preview
numbers, they were excited, so we
are in good shape. It was something
we weren t expecting, but we have
a script and we might be ready to
shoot in June or July. The film has
also done well in Egypt and Lebanon.
Hopefully we ll go to other territories,
like hitting Australia with it.
Shifting to music, reflecting on
this year s Grammys, what are your
thoughts on Macklemore & Ryan
Lewis beating Kendrick Lamar for
best rap album?
It s typical. It s the Grammys, what
do you expect? But for them to pass
up true skills for what could be fly-
by-night success. ... I don t want to
dis anybody, but seriously.
Are you upset that NWA wasn t
nominated for induction into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
It sucks. But it s understandable.
We really only had one album
together. They had two albums as a
group. I m sure that groups that have
been together longer can make a
better argument. But this just lets
you know how much we need a hip-
hop hall of fame of our own. (AP)
