Ice Cube Shines A Light On Black Hollywood

Rapper-turned-movie mogul ICE CUBE has hailed Hollywood for recognising the importance of black filmgoers. The Three Kings star - real name O'Shea Jackson - insists black film fans pump more money back into the studio system than any other demographic. So Cube, who claims he is getting the support to make the movies he wants to make, is calling on studios to give other black filmmakers a chance. He says, "What Hollywood has realised is that black people go to the movies more than anybody else. A lot of other people are putting entertainment systems in their house and movies aren't an outing for them. But for us, movies are still an outing. "The ones that are smart let us do our thing. We bring back a great movie and never go over budget, and everyone's happy at the end of the day."
