Ice Cube and Common have shared a new song and discussed a sequel to last year’s movie, Straight Outta Compton.

The track ‘Real People’ is taken from the pair’s upcoming movie Barbershop: The Next Cut, which features a guest appearance from Nicki Minaj. You can listen to the track below.

Speaking to Complex, Ice Cube said the duo “wanted to make a movie that was more than just comedy, we wanted to make a movie that was really reflecting what’s happening on the streets of Chicago”.

He also said Minaj’s role would surprise viewers. “I think people gonna be pleasantly surprised about her chops. She knocked it out of the park.”

Ice Cube went on to deny rumours that a sequel to Straight Outta Compton was in the works and focused on Death Row Records. “The first Straight Outta Compton, to pull that off was a 10 year feat. I think we’re all licking our wounds. There’s nothing in the works,” he said.”
