Ice cube did a good reddit AMA this month, and don't forget, he's a fan of architecture!

I was in the unusual position of being in a room this morning with a TV that was playing Bethanny Frankel's talk show, and she was interviewing Ice Cube, and he was so damned likable I couldn't bring myself to turn it off. He really seems like a good guy.

I love that there are two pictures of him smiling, two pictures of him not smiling, and one of the latter is the one where he's holding the comically oversized check.

Also, a fine opportunity to link to lkc's fantastic comment in the [Previously]

Anyone else read 'Telegraph Avenue' by Michael Chabon and get a feeling of deja vu looking at these pictures?

If you like Cube, the bit he did with Conan and Kevin Hart where they all share a Lyft car is hilarious.

When I was a kid I never got a good look at the Goodyear logo and always thought that the boot & wings in the logo was a handgun. Given that the first rap music I heard was NWA, I think it's finally come full circle.

Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp
And it read Ice Cube's a pimp


Instead of calling Ice Cube a pimp, as in the song, this blimp opted for the more-P.C. message of "it's a good day." Which, we guess, is fair enough when kids are involved. But how badass would that have been?


F those kids; I'm offended that it wasn't true to the lyrics. What are we gonna have next, Ice Cube starring in family comedies?

Which is kind of crazy coming from a mutated rhino-human with a penchant for violence.

Why doesn't Ice Cube get as high as a kite?

Because then he'd be Vapor Cloud
