Ice Cube Says Chiraq Violence Influenced ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’



The violence in Chicago has made national news ever since the Windy City totaled over 500 murders in 2012. The City is on pace to surpass that number in 2016. Ice Cube felt compelled to curb the violence in Chicago with his upcoming film “Barbershop: The Next Cut.”

Cube sat down with the Tom Joyner Morning Show to speak on how the violence in Chicago influenced his film.

“Yeah, that’s why we did the movie,” he said. “We haven’t done an installment for 12 years, and it was like we needed to have a great reason to do the movie — other than just talking about everyone in the barbershop. But we wanted to wrap it around a serious subject – everybody knows what’s going on in Chicago with the youth, you know with the murders.”

Cube’s storyline has him watching after his teenage son.

“Calvin has 14-year-old son now, who has dreads and he could give a damn about a barbershop,” he said. “So it’s about a father trying to keep his son out of the streets, so I think everyone from all walks of life can relate to that.”
