Ice Cube and Charlie Day know a thing or two about fighting. The duo go head to head  in the upcoming comedy Fist Fight. But, while we can’t tell you who wins, we can tell you who they think will win in another upcoming fight. HipHollywood sat down with them and got their two cents on the Chris Brown v. Soulja Boy bout.

“I think Chris Brown will win this one,” said Charlie Day. “I mean, we know he has experience punching.”

Yikes … we know, low blow (pun intended). Day did go on to say that he didn’t quite know who Soulja Boy was. But still he’s putting his money on Brown.

Meanwhile, Tracy Morgan, who also stars in the film, said he thinks Brown will be the victor. “He got good footwork, that’s what separated Ali; he floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee.”

“I think Chris Brown is going to beat the brakes off that boy,” added Ice Cube. “Chris Brown is athletic! Soulja Boy look like he smoke weed all day.”

Ice Cube, who infamously got into a rap beef with Eazy E and LL Cool J, commended the two for not taking their issues to the streets. “Long as it is sanctioned with gloves, I don’t mind that. Wax is fine too, but as long as you don’t take it to the streets, that’s when it gets criminal.”



5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
