ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS
ICE CUBE is a dynamic force in both film and music. The head
of his own production company, Cube Vision, he wrote, produced and starred in
three previous features for New Line Cinema, including the cult hit Friday, its
successful sequel Next Friday and The Players Club, for which he
made his directorial debut. A phenomenal success, Next Friday opened as a
number one box office hit and went on to debut as number one in its home video
release. The film, which featured Cube and the reunion of NWA on its soundtrack,
kicked off a franchise and has made over 100 million dollars with combined
theatrical, home video, DVD and revenues to date. Cube recently completed
production on the third film in the series, Friday After Next, which is
scheduled for release on November 27, 2002. Currently he is filming the MGM
comedy, The Barbershop, in Chicago.
Ice Cube starred in the critically acclaimed Three Kings
with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg. He received excellent reviews for his
performance in the film, which was picked as one of the Ten Best Films of 1999
by Time and Newsweek magazines and the National Board of Review.
Cube made his highly regarded motion picture debut in John Singleton's Academy
Award nominated Boyz in the Hood, a role which won him the Chicago Film
Critics Award for "Most Promising New Actor." Other film credits
include John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars, Anaconda with Jennifer
Lopez and Jon Voight, Trespass, The Glass Shield, Higher Learning and Dangerous
Ground, also for New Line.
Cube continues to be one of the most recognized hip-hop
artists in the recording industry. His thriving music career includes the
double-platinum success of both discs of his double album "War and
Peace." As a solo artist, Cube recorded such hit albums as "Lethal
Injection," "Bootlegs & B-Sides," "The Predator"
and "Amerikkka's Most Wanted." His collaborative effort with Mack-10
and WC (Westside Connection) produced the platinum-plus album "Bow
Down." A collection of his greatest hits, featuring two new songs, was
released by Priority Records in December 2001.
