"Every time I do a movie, people ask for a record, and every time I do a record,
people ask for a movie, [but] I'm becoming a big-time actor here,"
Cube said recently on the set of "Barbershop 2." "I'm going to go with the flow,
I'm not going to fight it. I'm going be what I am."
That explains why the two former N.W.A rappers have yet to collaborate in the studio,
despite announcing the project more than a year ago. Dre and Cube, however,
have been discussing ideas and the latter has no concerns about his follow-up
to 2000's War & Peace, Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc).
"I always look at a record like a game — you're worried about the lyrics and the music,
kind of like worrying about offense and defense," Cube explained.
"When you're with Dre you know the music is going to be right, the production is going to be right.
So all you have to worry about is the lyrics and making sure that you're ready to get in the booth
and do what you have to do to make a hot record."
Cube has been writing and said the results are similar to his early material,
even though his life as a movie star is far different from his childhood in the ghetto.
"I rap about things I have in my heart, stuff that troubles me, things that I've done,
seen or heard, like most rappers," Cube said. "Ain't nothing changed — I'm still the same person."
