Chaunce Hayden of Steppin Out magazine spoke with Ice Cube about his new movie ‘Friday After Next’ and asked about a fellow rapper having success on film, Eminem. “The reason I’m cool with Eminem and all the success he’s getting is because he’s a credible MC,” Cube said. “He can rhyme and do all the things you got to do to be credible out here. I’m talking about the music, lyrics, and the flow. It’s all put together right, so I have no problem with Eminem.” As for a white guy getting respect he has gotten in hip hop, Cube opined, “I mean, before him we had the Beastie Boys. Put it this way, that’s just the history of America. A white cat takes something invented by the black community and gets rich from it.”
