(FreshAsFrankie) For years, Ice Cube has been teasing another installment in his ‘Friday’ series, with rumors of the next movie including all the original cast members including Chris Tucker. Despite the reports, when asked about the film, Cube would always note that he could not get Tucker on-board for the project.
Now, it seems that Tucker has revealed his reasoning behind staying away from the project during a standup bit he recently performed. While on-stage, Tucker said he passed on “Next Friday” because Ice Cube failed to pay him for the first one. The comedian joked “Cube got mad cuz I didn’t wanna do part two. I told I ain’t doing it; I said no. He got mad. I told ‘You ain’t pay me for the first one, s**t.’ He gon’ give me some CDs and some weed. Hell Nah. You better give me some money!”
He went on to say that they made ‘Friday’ in 20 days and that he was just happy not to be touring, which made him do the movie.
