Jamaal Finkley of BlackTV recently sat down with Ice Cube to talk about his latest movie, The Lottery Ticket:

ICE CUBE (Mr. Washington / Executive Producer) has shown his creative talents in all phases of entertainment: as a film and television producer, director, screenwriter, rapper and critically acclaimed actor. He recently added documentary director when he delivered ESPN’s hit sports film “Straight Outta L.A.”

Born in South Central Los Angeles, Cube developed an interest in hip hop music at age 16. In 1987, Cube and Dr. Dre released the EP “My Posse,” under the name CIA, which led to the formation of N.W.A. Leaving N.W.A., Cube began a still-growing series of commercially successful and praised solo albums, starting with “AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted.” His musical efforts have sold in the millions; and he is known as one of the originators of gangsta rap and heads his own record company.

In 1992, Cube portrayed Doughboy in John Singleton’s “Boyz n the Hood.” Singleton encouraged Cube to start writing screenplays, which led to the 1995 comedy hit “Friday,” and two sequels, “Next Friday” and “Friday After Next,” on which he served as a producer and actor. His other film roles include “Higher Learning,” “Dangerous Ground,” “Anaconda,” “The Player’s Club” and the highly acclaimed “Three Kings,” with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg.

Cube’s additional credits include “Barbershop,” “All About the Benjamins,” “Barbershop 2: Back in Business,” “Torque” and “XXX: State of the Union.” Cube also starred in and produced “Are We There Yet?” and “Are We Done Yet?,” which has spawned the current hit television series “Are We There Yet?” on TBS.
