It only shoots paintballs
Ice Cube is at it again. This time he is planning on hosting a reality show on A&E entitled “Good In The Hood.” The premise of the show is to shine some light on the positive things going on in the hood. The show will run for 13 episodes with each episode lasting ten minutes. No, seriously, the show will run for one hour and is going to let us get a glimpse of former criminals who have gone all soft and decided to help out others in the community. Will they commit more crimes? Will they change lives? Pete Rose has his money on no.
Ice Cube’s last show “Black.White” sucked so bad it gave me sharp pains in my groin. I think I made it threw half an episode before I went to take a piss and surf the net. I have more faith in this show, despite the fact that Cube plans on being more involved (scowling in front of the camera). A&E’s logic is that Cube grew up in South Central and made something out of nothing, so he is a good choice to host. Here I thought he grew up the son of UCLA employees in a decent household and planned on designin’ buildings and shit.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Ice Cube and Death Certificate is one of my top 5 fave albums of all time, but why does Cube need to narrate this shit? Give me Bill Kurtis, son! A&E does a fine job creating “Intervention” without Robert Downey Jr. muggin’ in front of the camera so why the need to put Ice Cube in the series? Play your role behind the scenes, Cube. Maybe he can kick some money back to Da Lench Mob? Ice Cube was great at writing fictional material back in the 90’s and we are all aware he never had the balls to burn down a Korean market. I don’t dislike Stephen King just because he never had any encounters with most of the things he writes about, but he also doesn’t put his mug on ghost hunting reality shows.
Hell, if A&E really wants to do a killer reality series and is looking for someone badass who made something of themselves they should get Ice Cube’s “Three Kings” partner Marky Mark to host the show. Mr. “Good Vibrations” used to be a regular Beatrix Kiddo in his teenage Boston days, beating down cats and blinding Asians left and right. You saw how scared Will Ferrell was of him at the Oscars.
Would make Cube look like Slick Rick
