With a new television series and album in tow, Ice Cube’s got a lot on his plate these days. And this summer, he begins filming his next movie Rampart. The film stars him as a Los Angeles detective investigating a corrupt cop. Ironically, this is the same guy that recorded “Fuck Tha Police” two decades ago. But Cube isn’t bothered by the role. He tells Rap Radar that it’s all in a day’s work.
“Movies aren’t real. Basically comes out of that. It’s just a movie. If I want people to take me serious as an actor, I got to take myself serious as an actor. So it’s just a movie. Just a role. And its a good role. I’m playing a homicide detective who think a dirty cop did the murder. So, I’m on a dirty cop. So, it’s cool to get a dirty cop thrown in jail.”
