Transcript for Common and Ice Cube Talk 'Barbershop 3' on 'GMA'
♪ welcome to my house ♪ We're back with our barbershop takeover. Ice cube and common are here. Give it up for them. They're making waves with "barbershop:the next cut." We have a sneak peek of how things are going in the shop, take a look. It's a new situation. It's not a new situation. It's been a year. I understand that. All right, all. You need a minute? Because we'll all leave. It's like a love and hip-hop reunion there. It was. Please give a proper welcome to ice cube and common here to "Good morning America." Big fan of the franchise. This one has heart, has humor, has a message behind it. First, ice cube, congratulations. "Straight outta Compton" getting recognition at the mtv movie awards and nwa in the rock 'N roll hall of fame. To be recognized after all these years, 30 years ago, 25 years ago, I would never have thought that the music industry even wanted to remember nwa because of how much, you know, criticism we got, how much, you know, venom we got when we first started. But you know for it to come full circle and to be in the rock 'N roll hall of fame is great. Common, you're the newbie to the franchise. Yes. This was very important to you because it's based from Chicago. That's where you're from. Dealing with the gun violence, happening in Chicago and many cities across America, was like this script, this story had a heart to it where I needed to be a part of this. To work with cube and Cedric and Nicki Minaj and Malcolm lee, it was like, wow, beautiful. Beautiful job with the cast. So talented. Tonny in the way they worked together. This one has a social message to it that's very important. We didn't want to do just a barbershop, you can always climb the local celebrities. We wanted what was going on the south side of Chicago. You can't do a movie barbershop without talking about what's going outside the barbershop. It was the perfect backdrop to wrap this movie? It was also about this 48 hour, the weekend of a cease-fire and you got that from a real-life story in Memphis. Yeah, I read a story about a guy who, you know, he didn't know what to do, he said he was going to give out free cuts if they stopped the violence and I just thought that was a great premise and a great thing for him to do for the community and, you know, so, and barbershop, we got something similar. You surely do. That was very important to you? Yes, it's empowering. I remember hearing president Obama saying in a speech like it's going to be up to you what you do in America, the people. For our story to say, the barbers can help make change. Anybody can help make the change. The movie for me makes me feel good. It makes you think, gentlemen, because I knew I was going to laugh and you do that. And I knew it was going to have some heart to it. You finish watching it. It makes you ask questions and it does inspires you and it gives you hope. I got to tell you, my barbershop. My dad went to tyronne's every Saturday. We're going to go to Colby's, barbershop in New Jersey. The fellas want to ask you a question. Who has a question for the guys here? Do you have a question. How you doing? I'd like to ask cube a question. Can you hear me? Go ahead, shoot. If you weren't an actor would you be barber in real life? Maybe. Barbers are our unsung heroes in the neighborhood. They keep our self-esteem up so do our beauticians, you know, without them, where will our self-esteem be, you can walk into a barbershop get a nice conversation when you walk out, you're looking good and feeling good and you know, it makes us feel better. I would definitely consider it. It was the social media before the social media. No doubt. I take pride in this bald look. Keeping my beard tight. I care about my body, you know what I mean. I'm so glad and you guys have buried the hatchet long ago, the song "Real people" part of that, how you were able to put aside your differences. And work together. You know, it's great. Because, you know, we're showing even if you have a problem with somebody you know what I mean, through time and a little humbleness you can get through that and you cannot only get through that but you can work together and you can become friends. Whatever. Real people. It's great to be able to work with common in the movie and on the song and you know, it feels real good. And for you, common in. I feel like we're showing an example of people who do have beef whether it's on the streets or in music, you overcome those things for a higher purpose. We're making music. We progressed. We're putting out positive energy. Instead of staying in that negative space. It's all about moving guard. Love it. Love you guys. Thank you. It's a film that everybody needs to see. We thank everybody at our watch party as well. Now, he's all in it. Barbershop the next cut is in theaters on Friday.
