Ice Cube says Tom Brady needs to prove he’s ‘worthy Raider’ wants to scout Deion Sanders film

Ice Cube knows a thing or two about the sports business. The longtime rapper not only owns BIG3, the 3-on-3 pro basketball series, but Las Vegas recognizes it as the “President of the Raiders Nation” the honor of NFL a fandom that dates back to the silver and black championship days of the 1980s.

Now that’s Tom Brady, the future Hall of Fame quarterback set to be the Raiders As a minority owner, also fueling undying rumors that another will return to the field, Ice Cube may not be the most famous person associated with the franchise. But it’s not as certain that Brady’s role will be as significant as people had hoped, at least not soon.

“He’s a rookie with the Raiders, so he might have to go get donuts,” he joked to CBS Sports. “(We) might need him to get a coffee, get some luggage, get a few bags, you know what I’m saying? So we’ll see how his rookie year goes, and if he’s even a Raider, he’ll get a spot on the squad. But right now, he’s a rookie. And he’s better remembered as a rookie.”

Meanwhile, Ice Cube is embracing the ’80s and ’90s aesthetic of his Raiders take as a rookie for the upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” movie. Out August 4 from Paramount and Nickelodeon, the flick features the rapper and actor in his first leading voice role for an animated film, alongside Jackie Chan, John Cena, Seth Rogen and others.

“Seth called me,” Ice Cube explained, “and he was like, ‘Yo, I’m producing the ‘Ninja Turtle’ movie. I found a character named Superfly. Do you think you might want to look at him?’ I’m like, ‘I’m on my way.’ … It was a no-brainer. I think I said yes faster than he got the question out.”

Lying for his connections with the notoriously rambunctious Raider Nation, Cube says his character Superfly – literally a superpowered flight – has even more swagger than himself: “I mean, he’s a super villain, you know what I mean? I’m a nice guy. I do my thing. I do my thing. I don’t want to ‘blow up the man. He takes it to the next level, he doesn’t settle, he can’t drink to keep

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” won’t be the last big screen effort for the President of Raiders Nation, either. In addition to six projects currently under developmentIce Cube tells CBS Sports he would be interested in producing a movie about Raiders great Bo Jackson, whose NFL dual and MLB stardom was the talk of the 80s and 90s sports scene.

“I would definitely love to do something about it,” he said. “I mean, Deion Sanders is actually my friend, so I’d probably want to film Deion before Bo. And they were both great athletes, but Deion is playing in the World Series and his Super Bowlso I think the film should go for it (first).
