If you respect the art and you have some talent about you, I'm on your team.
I went to the High School for Performing Arts, and to Howard University on a talent scholarship.

You can say what you want to about a rapper in a movie, but look at what Ice Cube has done. Ice Cube has created more opportunities for other actors to get jobs in this business than some actors have.
Be ready for when your time comes, you will have that window of opportunity, so seize the moment and capitalise on it.

My wife and I have always trusted each other, and I have to thank her strength.
I'm not a comedian. I'm an actor who just happens to be funny on occasion.
My choices were never wrong.
