This is also the 25th anniversary of Boyz n the Hood, a film that- Where that time go? I don't know, I don't know where that time went. A film that was very pivotal in our culture and there's so much talent in Boyz n the Hood. You have Lawrence Fishburne, Regina King, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Ice Cube. What was it like on set with you guys? At that time. It was a special time for all of us because not only was it my first film, it was John Singleton's directorial debut. And I remember I tell the story, they call me Cube. That's my nickname. It's Cuba, it's Cube. Way to abbreviate. It was funny on the set. They would yell, hey, yo, Cube. And I would turn and say not Cube, Ice Cube. And they were like. I'm not sure if you seen but Snoop Dogg recreated your scene with Nia Long. [LAUGH] The spoof online, he comes in the house he's swinging, he's crying, he cries in her lap, have you seen any of those parodies or things from the film? yeah Rossi the MMA fighter named Sheila. It was this picture of me holding Ricky and his arm's with her face all beaten up.

Are there any other scenes or lines that fans come up to you on the street and say? All of them. Do they call you Trey? No, they'll go, give me the gun, Trey. Mercy. Or they'll go, Ricky! [LAUGH] And what's your response? [LAUGH] [INAUDIBLE] Show Me the Money. That's all [INAUDIBLE]. I like Show Me the Money, though. In fact, this is the funniest thing happened yesterday at the bar. Guy literally goes hey OJ, show me the money. I was like, really? You stupid mother. [LAUGH] [SOUND]
