While speaking to MTV, Ice Cube chopped it up about the movie based on the iconic group, NWA.
“We just tryin’ to tell the story of the world’s most dangerous group,” Cube said in an interview with MTV. “We’re trying to tell aspects of our lives that people don’t know about, people aren’t privy to.”
Back in April 2013, Cube also spoke about the significance of having this movie made.
“We’re taking it to the nooks and crannies, I think deeper than any other article or documentary on the group,” Cube said. “These are the intimate conversations that helped forge N.W.A. To me, I think it’s interesting to anybody who loves that era and I don’t know any other movie where you can mix Gangster Rap, the F.B.I., L.A. riots, HIV, and fucking feuding with each other. This movie has everything from Darryl Gates and the battering ram.”
There’s been speculation that Ice Cube might even cast his own son in the film.
“That’s a dream come true, but we’re going to find the best actor to do the job,” he said. “That’s the thing about movies: You have got to find the best people to do the role. It is going to be a role that I think is right for unknowns, people who you haven’t seen before. I think that’s the best way to pull this off.”
