According to Access Hollywood Ice Cube said, “We’re actually going to put together an N.W.As movie to show the whole [story,]” he said of the iconic rap group, which also included Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren. “We putting it together with director F. Gary Gray, who directed me in ‘Friday,’” he explained. And all of the various N.W.A. parties appear to be onboard with the project.“We got everybody,” he continued. “Dr. Dre is on as a producer. I’m in… Ren, everybody and Eazy’s estate is in… So yeah, we are looking forward to that.”But Cube won’t be playing the young Cube in the biopic. “Somebody is going to play us,” he said. One aspect of his life which could be included is how the rapper, whose realname is O’Shea Jackson, got his nickname.“My brother, he named me Ice Cube. He kind of was clowning me though because I used to think I was too cool for school, too cool for the room, and he was like, ‘Man you not too cool. You not cool like that man. You that cool, I’m gonna put you in the freezer, call you Ice Cube,’” he explained. “I went outside that day and that was my new nickname.” “Ride Along” hits theaters on January 17.
Sidebar: I think Ride Along is going to be hilarious. And who doesn't want to see a NWA movie? Okay maybe a lot of people. But I would to see how these guys from Compton became worldwide rapstars. I love Ice Cube. He is a great success story. Him and Dr. Dre.
