Michael Blackson is defending Ice Cube after Faizon Love shared that he’s only been paid $2,500 to star in Friday.
“@Icecube is not to blamed for us getting paid so little it’s the film industry’s pay scale,” Blackson tweeted. “I got paid $800 a day when I did Next Friday plus overtime I made $1200 for my one day’s work of ‘I can’t get giggy with the sh*t” Thanks to next Friday I became the biggest African comic.”
He captioned the post: “Just like any other job there’s entry level pay for first timers, once you make a name for yourself you can demand any amount of money that you want and if they want you they will pay. @icecube Thanks for the Friday franchise because it got me where I am today. When I produce my film I’m paying new neegas in food and a follow back from my IG page”
Is he right or is $2500 not enough cash?
