Rapper turned actor Ice Cube is commonly known for acting in Slap-stick Black films which typically play on Black stereotypes. With his new movie “The Lottery Ticket” coming to theaters tomorrow, Ice Cube shares that the movie is a cautionary tale, and meant for audiences to have a good time, despite critics fear of it being a shameful movie.

In a phone interview with Ice Cube, there was no holding back when it came to his latest film, “Lottery Ticket.” As always I like to play the Devil’s Advocate so he was asked right off about reinforcing Black stereotypes.

“Probably so,” Cube retorted, “but the thing about stereotypes is in some ways there’s some truth in them. It’s who we are. We’re more or less having fun with those ideas in this film. This is not like a serious drama. It’s who we are in some ways and we should really stop being ashamed of who we are and start understanding who we are. And, if we don’t like it, we should do something about it and change it.”

Text continues after Black Hollywood gallery:

Cube continued to explain the virtues of “Lottery Ticket,” which also stars Bow Wow, Brandon T. Jackson and Loretta Devin, Keith David and Terry Crews.

“It’s a cautionary tale but it’s a fun movie meant for having a good time. We touch on grief, materialism, friends and family, and older people who are kind of shut away from the community-Shut-ins like Mr. Washington. He gave up on the community a little bit and a person like Kevin comes through and gives him hope again. It’s touches on all these subjects without being a sap story.”
