Ice Cube and Common both star in the upcoming film “Barbershop: The Next Cut,” which seems pretty normal for two of the more successful rappers-turned-actors. However, the two had a fairly notable beef in the 1990s, which eventually led to Common’s diss track “The Bitch in Yoo.” Fast-forward to 2016 though, and the two are together on “Real People.”
The song will appear on the soundtrack for “Barbershop: The Next Cut,” and features the two spitting vintage verses over an upbeat boom-bap beat. Ice Cube is still his hard self, taking shots at rap’s current fascination with drug culture while Common spits an empowering verse.
It's a good day when it's me and O'Shea
it's like the times we cheered for O.J.
I say "Mike," Cube say "Kobe"
but ain't no more beef, I put that on chief
BLAOW, a little homie dead in the streets
it's like the day they compared us to meat
glad Farrakan prepared us to meet
now me n bro bringing meals to the meek
