Ice Cube Brings New Meaning to N.W.A. in “22 Jump Street”

Published

If there’s one thing Ice Cube is good at, it’s bringing the attitude. The rap icon and former N.W.A frontman has become known for his mean mug and brash hip hop lyrics, and he’s bringing a combination of the two to his performance in the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street.

HipHollywood sat down with Cube’s co-stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill to talk about the flick and working with the Iceman.

“I think on the first movie, I don’t think he trusted Chris and Phil or us,” laughed Channing. “Then I think he saw the first movie and liked it, and obviously his character, and then now he has a bigger part … and he just came to play.”

But the guys also spent a lot of time between shooting talking to Cube about his gangster raps days, so much so Hill said they could have made a documentary.

“I basically spent six months between the two movies in a room with Ice Cube ad Channing,” said Hill. “I asked him every possible question about every one of his albums, every one of his songs.”

22 Jump Street is in theaters June 13th.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
