Ice Cube Reveals Details On N.W.A. Biopic, Speaks On The Group's Legacy

Ice Cube shares some new information regarding the long talked about N.W.A. biopic and talks about the group's involvement and legacy.

Within the last week, Ice Cube has revealed that he is working on the next Friday sequel and he has touched on Dr. Dre's Detox delay. Now, more Ice Cube news has been revealed as more details about the long talked about N.W.A. biopic are being unveiled. In a recent interview with ComingSoon.com, Cube spoke on the film, his former group members' involvement and the legacy of "the world's most dangerous group." 

While speculation of the group's full involvement has been a topic of discussion, Cube revealed that N.W.A. group members have been a part of the process.

"I'm producing it and I'm doing most of the heavy lifting but those guys have definitely participated in the interview process and just trying to get the script together," Cube explained. "The more and more this thing starts to build up, the more and more you'll see the guys around and involved in it."

Touching more on the group's legacy, he said that he believes N.W.A. allowed more people to express themselves freely, unafraid to be themselves on the microphone. 

"I knew we made a major impact on the trajectory of music in a lot of ways, and I would never know that people would still refer to that group and that time as a turning point in artistic expression in a lot of ways. I think with N.W.A., it made everybody who was coming out with something just like, 'Yo, I'm just going to be myself. I'm not going to put a fake nothin', not gonna pretend to be a nice guy and do great music and I feel this way,' so people just decided to be themselves and do what they like." 

No official word has been given regarding a timeline for the biopic. Fans of Cube can soon catch him in the upcoming 21 Jump Street. He's also currently working on the aforementioned Friday sequel and a new season of Are We There Yet?, his television program.

    NWA were fake gangstas who came out at just the right time. They literally had no competition, but predictably didn't last. I'm not sure what legacy Cube is referring to. Maybe if Eazy hadn't died and/or become the butt of jokes after losing that war of words to Dre NWA you could say they had a legacy, but at least to me, despite a few good songs, they were more products of their time period. If you listen now, alot of their stuff sounds dated.
