In an interview with Billboard, Ice Cube spoke about the fact that the NWA will not be going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. Here are highlights:
On not going into the Hall of Fame: "It sucks. But it's understandable. We really only had one album together. They had two albums as a group. I'm sure that groups that have been together longer can make a better argument. But this just lets you know how much we need a hip-hop hall of fame of our own."
On Macklemore & Ryan Lewis beating Kendrick Lamar at the Grammys: "It's typical. It's the Grammys, what do you expect? But for them to pass up true skills for what could be fly-by-night success. ... I don't want to dis anybody, but seriously."
On moving into movies: "The creative process of making a movie really turned me on. I'd started getting behind the scenes with a camcorder and VHS tape when making music videos. But when I did `Boyz n the Hood' with John Singleton, I saw someone my age who was really doing it behind the scenes. I felt like I needed to be doing it on that level. (John) challenged me to start writing. My first two scripts sucked, but my third was `Friday.'"
