When it comes down to the conversation of music artists turned Hollywood actors Ice Cube is definitely at the top of our lists!
From staring in major cult classics to winning an NAACP award in the legendary John Singleton ‘s iconic film Boyz N The Hood; Ice Cube has showed and proved for over thirty years that acting is a genuine passion of his.
In a recently aired interview with Big boy’s neighborhood , Cube revealed that he has turned down numerous roles in the past belonging to some of the most talked about films ever created.
He also revealed that he was suppose to play the role of Lucky in Singleton’s 90s film Poetic Justice but a difference of opinion forced him to decline. Cube states that after reading the script the character’s role didn’t exactly align with who he was as a person.
“He didn’t wanna change it, so I didn’t wanna do it,” Cube recalled. “The problem was, me playing Tupac, I don’t think I’d kick my homeboy out the car for a girl I just met when we got to Oakland. I didn’t think that was cool. It kinda made the character a sucker to me.”
For context, the film, Tupac’s character Lucky, a mail carrier and aspiring rapper, attacked his friend Chicago, played by Joe Torry, and then forces him to exit the company vehicle after he hit Janet Jackson’s character, Justice.
