Ice Cube sits down the TheWrap to discuss the obstacles he faced while producing Straight Outta Compton, and his son’s portrayal of him in the film.
Ice Cube has been a Hollywood player for two decades, producing a string of films including the Friday franchise, Ride Along and the Barbershop films. But the hip-hop mogul said his latest project, the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, took years to get rolling.
“It was one of the hardest movies I ever had to get made. It’s been a four-year process and that’s just actual process,” Ice Cube told TheWrap about the Universal Pictures release, which hits theaters August 14. “But as the dream, it goes back almost 10 years.”
