Why? I’m told he makes $10 million a year. CAA, WME, UTA all fighting to sign him.

He’s a Cash Cube for you and can do everything in this business but a warning to all Agents, you cannot BS the guy at all.
He smells it like cheap aftershave.
I’d rather push pins under my nails and light my hair on fire then be in business with Jeff Kwatinetz. God bless Ice Cube for helping the sick and the lame.
Cube should move with Ramses & Mike to UTA. They are highly motivated to perform for him and they already have history. Don’t people respect history!
“Agency Feeding Frenzy Over Ice Cube?”
Six words I never thought would appear in a sentence together. What’s this business coming to?
Cube is still with Kwatinetz? Well, why not – he’s made him a ton of $ and perhaps he’s one of the only (or ONLY?) clients Kwatinetz has left.
What? ‘Cube not going with Ramses, after all the (suspiciously similar) rave-up comments posted about IsHak last week? In truth, Ice Cube is tremendously ambitious, a corporation unto himself. He would probably be best served working through an entertainment law firm, not some shmucky agent.
I would guess others will follow ‘Cube, rather than Ramses.
IC is a smart entrepreneur. Let’s give props where they’re due.
But as a movie star, his last 4 movies in a row flopped. I’d say, on that front, he’s done.
Ice Cube makes ten mill a year? Making forgettable ‘urban’ comedies that hardly anyone bothers to watch? He’s just coasting thru, I guess.
“The Longshots” 11 million
“1st Sunday” 38 million
Are We Done, Yet?” 58 million
“Are We There, Yet?” 97 million
Though it’s obviously where you get your information, stop talking out of your ass.
Ice Cube may be money but it’s Matt Alvarez that calls the shots. CAA has no chance with IC; he fired them before. WME will be too focused on getting their shit together for 6 months to be able to put any really energy into IC. UTA has the best chance at servicing him, but it will come down to ishak and sheresky keeping their wits long enough to rope him in and proving their worth without the leverage of the music dept to pull any slack. alvarez has a good head on his shoulders and he’ll guide cubevision to the promiseland, and IC will be back in the spotlight (as long as he stays away from the XXX franchise).
