Ice Cube Unfazed About Playing A Cop

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.”

    If your a good actor, it doesnt matter what fuckin role you play. even if its the guy who killed your closest family member. its not real, but its your job to make it real.

    Exactly, so who cares if he’s playing a cop. He’s acting. Like Rick Ross does on his albums.

  • yaboitone

    who KNOWS cube is certified?
    and what does that mean exactly?

    people pick and choose who they accept. One hypocrite, liar, actor, manipulator and fake gets a pass while the other gets crucified?
    all with no REAL evidence that supports either side of the opinion.
