Ice Cube Raps Children’s Book ‘Goodnight Moon’ on ‘Arsenio’
Not only is Ice Cube having a good day but he’s having the best week ever. First his movie, ‘Ride Along,’ is the No. 1 flick in America and then he gets his name emblazoned on a Goodyear blimp. What’s next? How about children’s books.
The rapper-actor appeared on the ‘Arsenio Hall Show’ Wednesday (Jan. 22) to rap along with the bedtime book, ‘Goodnight Moon.’
The lullaby tome features Cube wishing everyone a goodnight sleep including punk-ass bears, punk-ass children and punk-ass kittens. Oh my!
“Good night stars, good night air / good night to you crumb snatchers f—ing everywhere,” he raps.
We don’t think this children’s book will go over well with parents. But it’s hilarious though!
Elsewhere on the show, Cube talked with Hall about his upcoming album ‘Everythang’s Corrupt,’ which hits stores May 13.
“I’m talking about corruption everywhere,” he explained. “I’m talking about a lot of youngsters done moved away from the drink and the weed. They on the pills. I talk about they gotta get off the pills and narcotics. There’s really a lot of stuff still that needs to be talked about, needs to be rapped about, and who best than Ice Cube to do it?”
Cube is also working on the N.W.A. biopic with director F. Gary Gray. As far as who will play him in the movie, he would like his son, rap newbie OMG, to portray him. However, Cube stressed that he’s not going to let nepotism affect who should play the young version of himself. “I don’t want to just do it just because he’s my son. I want to do it ’cause he’s the best guy for the job,” he said.
