This time it's the US box office - his new movie 'Barbershop' is a smash...

Rapper ICE CUBE has gone back to the top of the charts – but this time it’s at the American Box Office.

The former NWA star’s new comedy ‘Barbershop’ grossed an estimated $21 million in the three days since September 13, taking it to the top of the North American charts.

According to the Reuters news service, if these estimates prove to be accurate, the film will be regarded as the third best September opener ever, behind ‘Rush Hour’ and ‘Double Jeopardy’.

In the film, Cube plays the cash starved owner of a Barber Shop in Chicago who sells the shop to pay off his debts but then tries to get it back after realising what it means to the community at large.
