Ice Cube Responds To Faizon Love Saying He Only Got Paid $2500 For 'Friday'

Ice Cube responded to fans on Twitter after they dragged him for only paying Faizon Love $2,500 for the Friday movie.

Faizon revealed his pay in a recent interview, and fans accused Cube of robbing his costars. Faizon played Big Worm in the movie.

"Yo it's wild how @icecube act like he for the people and whole time been robbing his own people…..Pay them people @FAIZONLOVE @christuckerreal #RipAjjohnson" somebody wrote.

"I didn't rob no f*ckin body. The 1995 Friday movie cost $2.3m to make. Shot it in 20 days. Fazion worked 1 day, maybe 2. All the actors got paid scale to do the movie. They could've simple said "No" but they didn't. So miss me with that sh*t…"

Faizon also defended Cube: "First of all I not only consider Ice Cube a comrade but my brother and I'm still a fan. I think he's One of the dopest n*ggas to ever touch a mic. I guess it's a slow news week so let me say what I got paid is a moot point, it was the price of admission to a game . I have zero regrets," he wrote.

"Actually , I want to take this time to thank Cube Dj Pooh and Felix Gary Grey for letting me be apart of such an iconic picture. I truly have nothing but Love For these brothers. WestSide N*ggas!!!!!!!! @icecube @djpooh."
