Legendary NWA alum, Ice Cube, is preparing to release his tenth full length solo LP, Everythang’s Corrupt. In the midst of this particular project, Cube sat down to talk with The L.A. Weekly about his upcoming NWA documentary.
During this interview, Cube was questioned about his sometimes ambiguous relationship with former band mate and mega Hip Hop Producer and Music mogul, Dr. Dre. Though the two had beef when Ice Cube ceremoniously left NWA to strike on his own, the two have worked together on a number of occasions. As two of the most successful and enduring members from the group, many wonder how their personal and working relationships are at this time.
In the 90’s Cube appeared in Dr. Dre’s Let Me Ride Video. Later on, the two would collaborate to do Natural Born Killaz, among a couple of other collaborations.
When pressed about Dr. Dre, Cube simply responded that they talk occasionally and that they would be working together to produce the NWA documentary.
As far as the documentary itself is concerned, Cube was quick to point out that His is the real one, not really indicating in relationship to what other movie or documentary that is out there. There are a couple.
“That other [N.W.A.-related film] that you heard about was bullshit. This is the official one. We’re taking it to the nooks and crannies, I think deeper than any other article or documentary on the group. These are the intimate conversations that helped forge N.W.A. To me I think its interesting to anybody who loves that era and I don’t know any other movie where you can mix Gangster Rap, the FBI, L.A. riots, HIV, and fucking feuding with each other. This movie has everything from Darryl Gates and the battering ram.”
