Ice Cube and Bow Wow star in the new film ‘Lottery Ticket’, and the rappers turn actors spoke with each other for MySpace’s “Artist on Artist”. Bow Wow explained how he grew up on N.W.A. and wanted to emulate Ice Cube, while Cube throws nothing but praise Bow Wow’s way as he describes how Bow has successfully carried the torch. “I study who I’m supposed to be and I don’t let the Ice Cube, whatever people thinking get in the way of what I need to do performing wise,” Cube told Bow Wow. “That’s one of the hardest transitions from rapping to acting, is to get all the hip hop heads out of your head. All the people who don’t want you to be nothing but a rapper. Everybody is gonna have something to say. People are gonna like your performance, people are gonna hate on your performance, but you gotta know you did your best and that you’re not bringing them on to the set. The haters on to the set.” Watch the discussion via MySpace below.

I just let them know, hey, you know what’s happening, you treat her right, and I’ll treat you right, but anything you do to her, I’m doing to you.” They also reviewed the notebook of lyrics Ice Cube has kept since the N.W.A days.

‘I Am The West’ is the name of my new record. After completing about 65 percent of my music, this is the new perfect title. This sh** is cocky, no apologies, West Coast gangsta sh**. I can’t help it. That’s what I do… June seems too tight for a release, but July is very doable. We’ll see how things go. Now that I have my title, I can work on the concept of my photoshoot and artwork. I want to provide.
