Ice Cube sat down with Howard Stern to discuss how he reconciled with Dr. Dre and how much he hated his acting debut.
Speaking on “The Howard Stern Show”;, Ice Cube says his beef with Dre started when Ice Cube left N.W.A over a royalties dispute. When the two reconciled, however, they never spoke of their history: “He was producing a record called “Natural Born Killaz’ and he wanted me on it.”;
The “Barbershop”; actor says when he arrived at Dre’s house for a meeting, it was as if nothing had changed: “We just went forward. We’re gonna always be like that. I don’t care if we don’t talk to each other for 10 years, when we see each other, it’s gonna be like yesterday.”;
He also tells Stern about his acting debut, in 1991’s “Boyz N The Hood”;. He was asked to audition by his close friend, film director John Singleton, but says he was far from a natural: “I didn’t read the script… I sucked.”;
Ice Cube says it was after his third chance at the role, that he read the script and realized the movie’s significance: “This is about our neighborhood. This is something I know I can do… from that day on, I’ve been taking filmmaking and acting and auditioning seriously.”;
