Ice Cube challenges Straight Outta Compton critics
Hip-hop star Ice Cube has called on critics of 'Straight Outta Compton' to make their own movie.
Ice Cube has challenged critics of 'Straight Outta Compton' to make their own movie.
The 46-year-old rap icon - who starred in N.W.A alongside DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and MC Ren - acted as a producer on the new film and has responded to recent criticism of the movie by telling fans to make their own version.
He said: "People are welcome to do their own version of the NWA story.
"There's been a thousand movies about Elvis, we can tolerate a few more N.W.A. movies."
Some critics have bemoaned the decision to omit certain incidents from the movie and Cube thinks his suggestion offers a chance to rectify that.
He told SBS: "That being said, and that put to the side, this is a situation where you could pick and choose what you want to put in the movie. There are things that are bigger that aren't in the movie."
Meanwhile, Cube recently backed fellow hip-hop star Kanye West's plan to become US President in 2020, saying he couldn't think of anyone more suited to the role.
He shared: "I'm voting for Kanye. Why not? Who's better than Kanye to run?"
