(AllHipHop News) West Coast Hip-Hop veteran Ice Cube has accepted former rival Common’s offer to possibly work together in a movie in the near future. During an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Ice Cube replied to Common’s statement last week about wanting to work with his former foe. Common and Ice Cube were engaged in a vicious war of words in the mid-1990′s. The situation almost turned violent until The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan held a meeting at his Chicago mansion and urged the rising rap stars to peacefully resolve their differences. Since then, both artists have gone on to have immense success on the silver screen. Ice Cube, who recently produced the series Are We There Yet? for TNT, has starred in groundbreaking flicks like Boyz N Tha Hood, in addition to executive producing and starring in his own hit movies like Friday and Barbershop.”When we had our little issues in the 90s we sat down with Farrakhan and he told us why we needed to be brothers and squash it,” Ice Cube told AllHipHop.com. “Since then, I aint never had an ill feeling towards Common. We’ve seen each other on several occasions and it’s all love, like it never happened. I’d be down to do a movie anytime. Anytime.”Common, who has starred in movies like Terminator Salvation, Smokin’ Aces, American Gangster and Just Wright, recently wrapped up filming on Hell on Wheels, a time-piece about the Transcontinental Railroad set in the 1860′s. During an interview with AllHipHop.com last week, Common revealed that he would like to work with Ice Cube on a movie, should the chance ever arise. “Point blank, when Cube and I had beef, I was a fan of his first and foremost, I grew up like loving Cube,” Common told AllHipHop.com. “I still respected him as an artist, but I had to come at him. It’s like a boxer; if somebody challenge you in the ring, you got to go at him. But we all good now, and maybe we can produce a movie together or something.”Ice Cube was very optimistic about working with Common in the future and noted that it only made sense, considering the amount of success both men have experienced in Hollywood. “He’s in Hollywood and I’m in Hollywood. We are both leading men and we can do this,” Ice Cube told AllHipHop.com. Ice Cube recently released his 9th album I Am The West on his independent label, Lench Mob Records.
