Ice Cube Says Accused Perverted Rapist Harvey Weinstein Ruined "Janky Promoters"

Cube says Harvey and his brother did him dirty too.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper/actor Ice Cube has accused disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein of deliberately sabotaging the success of his 2009 film "Janky Promoters" by releasing it on DVD without his knowledge.

Ice Cube claims the comedy, which also featured his longtime pal Mike Epps, wasn't even given the chance at a proper box office release.

Cube said Weinstein and his Dimension Films business partner and brother, Bob Weinstein, had the project completed behind his back and rushed it out for retailers without his approval.

The hip-hop legend went public with the news on Twitter, after one fan praised the film and dubbed it "the funniest underrated movie ever."

"This movie is bitter-sweet for me," he replied. "We never had a chance to finish or promote "Janky Promoters."

"Harvey Weinstein and his brother put this movie out on DVD behind our backs before we could finish the film. They actually had editors finish the movie in secret #JankyStudioHeads".

"Janky Promoters" starred Cube and Epps as two young show promoters who find themselves in trouble after their plans to hire rapper Jeezy for a gig go wrong.

After a string of delays, it was given a limited release in October, 2009, before being rolled out on DVD just five weeks later.
