Rappers turned actors Ice Cube and Common stopped by NBC’s The Tonight Show to talk about their upcoming film Barbershop 3. What started out as a conversation about the third installment of Cube’s comedic trilogy turned into a multifaceted performance from both MCs.
With assistance from The Roots, the N.W.A. founder and the Chi-town veteran took to the stage to perform their joint single “Real People,” which appears on the official soundtrack for their new film. Common also discussed his history with N.W.A and talks about opening up for the rap group in the late ’80s. Afterwards, the Glory rapper decided to show the crowd his other true talent next to rapping and acting: break dancing.
Barbershop 3: The Next Cut is set to bring back to the original cast of hilarious characters played by Eve and Cedric The Entertainer as well as appearances from Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Regina Hall and more. The film hits theaters April 15.
