As reparations become a more and more popular topic while anti-police and anti-racism protests rage across the US, rapper Ice Cube wants to see Hollywood studios take part and give yearly payments to black-owned companies.
“I think these studios that we know and love should kick in to a studio that’s ran by black people with no outside influences, and whose movies and projects are owned by those black people,” the musician and actor told radio show ‘The Breakfast Club’.
These studios, he claims, have “contributed in our narrative, in our pain, in our misrepresentation.”
First making waves as a rapper as part of the band NWA, Ice Cube has gone on make a career from acting, writing, and producing films – many of which have found support from major Hollywood studios such as Universal (‘Ride Along’ and ‘Ride Along 2’), MGM (the ‘Barbershop’ franchise), and New Line Cinema (the ‘Friday’ franchise).
