Rapper Ice Cube has cancelled plans to record with hip-hop hero Dr Dre,
because he wants to concentrate on his Hollywood career.
The TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY star has postponed his mooted collaboration with
former NWA partner Dre, despite announcing the project more than a year ago.
The THREE KINGS star laughs, "Whenever I do a movie, people ask for a
record, and every time I do a record, people ask for a movie, (but) I'm
becoming a big-time actor here. I'm going to go with the flow, I'm not going to
fight it. I'm going be
what I am."
Cube, currently working on follow-up film BARBERSHOP 2, is undecided about
making the film into a franchise and creating a third installment, even though
Queen Latifah has already signed to star in BEAUTYSHOP, the female version of
He says, "It's all about the people, man. We'll see how this one does. I
don't want to think too far into the future, but if everybody comes back and
it's the right script, why not?"
The urban legend's next starring vehicle will be Are We There Yet? with
Snow Dogs director Brian Levant.
Cube continues, "It's me basically with two kids, driving them from one
part of the country to another and they can't stand me and I hate them too.
"By the end of it we end up kicking it with each other and digging each
other, but I would not call it a family movie, because I don't want to just do
movies that kids love. I want to do movies that everybody loves, from 8 to 80."
