Well, maybe some – like Cube re-releasing the classic project AND juicing it up with with new songs; all dope! Like this “Good Cop Bad Cop” (produced by T-Mix).

Ice Cube Honored With A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame (Video)

I’ll admit that I had not given much thought to stuff like this, mainstream Hollywood’s recognition of Ice Cube’s work, but it’s about time! Now, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer can point to his own star on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame. That’s cool. Very cool. Congrats, Cube!

Ice Cube Confronts Bill Maher About His Use Of The “N” Word (Video)

That’s our word now, and you can’t have it back.
Ice Cube

Certainly not ‘nothing’ and much ado should be made of it. Uber-Progressive, sh!t-talking talk show host who walks the talk Bill Maher opened the can and got himself into a jam loaded with n-word on a prior show. Bitter n-word use that left a BAD taste in everyone’s mouths, esp. Black people’s). Just used that word like he was one of the the n—

(Nope. Not gonna.)

But you know what? This is a teachable moment. And like an adult, Bill went to the cabinet and took his medicine. He had Michael Eric Dyson AND Ice Cube on the very next show. And they addressed that sh!t. Worked it out. No sugarcoating. Very frank, to the point, grown-folk talk about what Bill knows: It is NOT okay for him (as a White person) to invoke the n-word.

Watch and be impressed how the NWA (irony much?) articulated the matter and what was the matter to Maher and by extension to the millions of people who follow his lead (including many who might be getting a bit too comfortable using the n-word). Teachable moment…

Ice Cube Reveals That “Last Friday” Is In The Works, Gives James Corden A BIG3-Style Hand Check And More (Video)

Marketing GENIUS! For one, going on the ‘Late Late Show’ rocking the BIG3 tee shirt and ‘demonstrating’ some expected rough stuff from his new basketball league (more on BIG3 here) on host James Corden in this segment… then, THENNNN letting it ‘slip’ that another installment of the beloved ‘Friday’ movie series (“Last Friday,” apparently) is in the works. Plus, Jason Derulo giving big-ups to the OG off top. ‘Today was a good day’ for Oshea J. Setting up for a good year!

Ice Cube and Jason Derulo had a blast on ‘The Late Late Show’ on Tuesday night (May 16), with Cube laying down a hard hand-check on host James Corden and Derulo busting out his best Michael Jackson moves.

Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League Is Coming To Barclays Center This Summer (Video)

Okay, this could be a score for FS1 on Monday nights. Loving the names of the teams for BIG3 Basketball at Barclays (after the jump). Now, if they can avoid the XFL trap of getting too gimmicky with a game folks love… just make exciting basketball… not reinventing the game, just eliminating the lame from that lane… we got something! Plus, handchecking and fairplay freethrows.

Watching Cube and Rappaport break it down in conversation might pique your curiosity to tune in June.

Fist Fight (Trailer)

You know, Ice Cube does really well on films in which he stars opposite an actor who can deliver high-energy foolery – Chris Tucker, Mike Epps, Kevin Hart… you get it. And now Charlie Day, seemingly a bit subdued in the trailer. But bet on some of that “Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” “Pacific Rim,” “Bad Bosses” crazy coming through his character as he is forced to face down Ice Cube’s character. Yeah. You read right. How else would they get to the point of a “Fist Fight.”

Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way in the comedy “Fist Fight,” directed by Richie Keen (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) – in theaters February 17!

On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.

Oh damn, Tracy Morgan’s in this! Definitely on the Ice Cube crazy co-star list, too. See you after school in the parking lot, punk. Hahaaa!

Ice Cube Hints At A Coming NWA Reunion (Video)

Ice Cube foreshadowing this year’s Coachella concert supreme Hip-Hop moment…maybe? Look, Cube wants that NWA reunion. And if anybody could make it happen (with a phone call to Dr. Dre), it’s the man O’shea.

I’ve got some tricks up my sleeves… I’m gonna try to bring the members of NWA together…give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and NWA, Westside connection, everything I’ve been doing over the years. We have some great visuals….same night Guns & Roses get back together…It’s gonna be a great night!

HILARIOUS! Sure Ice Cube and Kevin Hart have their upcoming “Ride Along 2” movie to promote (in theaters January 15, 2016), but why not “ride along” (ha!) with their homie Conan O’Brien? He could use some help schooling Diana Chang on maneuvering in these streets… not being no punk… cutting off and cussing out drivers (offensive driving)… throwing batteries and pennies at ’em… wilding out on them po-po’s… picking up pinatas, scoring weed and scarfing chicken…

You know, some real drivers’ education and sh!t. Hahaaaaaaa!

Cube couldn’t see ANYONE other than his son, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., play him in the new N.W.A. biopic, “Straight Outta Compton.” And Jr. came to realize that if he didn’t, he was risking another actor messing up his father’s story on the big screen.

Ice Cube Breaks Down The Lyrics To ‘Straight Outta Compton’ (Video)

Juuuust in case Ice Cube’s straightforward sword-sharp delivery of his lyrics on N.W.A.’s gangsta rap classic “Straight Outta Compton” were not strong enough to carry the message clearly to all… Vanity Fair brought in the man himself to properly interpret what he meant for his rhymes to say to the masses… and give feedback to folks who submitted what they thought Ice Cube meant. Good stuff. Watch.
