Ice Cube and Common Consider Doing a Film Together
The veteran rappers engaged in a heated beef back in the mid-90’s, which spawned one of the best diss songs of all time in Com’s ‘The B—- in Yoo,’ and was ultimately squashed by Minister Louis Farrakhan. Cube and Common have since mellowed out, preferring to take their aggression out on movie audiences rather than wax. With their beef long buried, it “only makes sense” according to Ice Cube, that the two rapping actors would work on a film together.
The former N.W.A. member has an extensive list of films under his belt, having appeared in ’90s comedies like ‘Friday,’ action flicks like ‘Anaconda’ and ‘Three Kings,’ and produced the new TV series ‘Are We There Yet?’ for TNT, while Common recently starred opposite Queen Latifah in ‘Just Wright,’ and has landed supporting roles in blockbusters ‘Terminator Salvation’ and ‘American Gangster.’
“When we had our little issues in the ’90s we sat down with Farrakhan and he told us why we needed to be brothers and squash it,” Ice Cube said recently. “Since then, I ain’t never had an ill feeling towards Common. We’ve seen each other on several occasions and it’s all love, like it never happened. I’d be down to do a movie anytime. Anytime.”
When asked for a comment, Common agreed that he’d be happy to work on a film with his former rival. “Point blank, when Cube and I had beef, I was a fan of his first and foremost, I grew up like loving Cube,” the Chi-town MC explained. “I still respected him as an artist, but I had to come at him. It’s like a boxer; if somebody challenge you in the ring, you got to go at him. But we all good now, and maybe we can produce a movie together or something.”
Cube continued to express interest in working with Common, saying “He’s in Hollywood and I’m in Hollywood. We are both leading men and we can do this.”
