On Wednesday, Ice Cube took to Twitter to defend the pay rate of the actors on the movie Next Friday.

It started when Faizon Love said he was paid $2500. Ice Cube said he was paid ‘scale’ for one day of work.

Michael Blackson has now entered the chat.

He took to Twitter and wrote, @icecube is not to blame for us getting paid so little it’s the film industry’s pay scale. I got paid $800 a day when I did Next Friday plus overtime. I made $1200 for my one day’s work.

Thanks to Next Friday I became the biggest African comic.

Faizon Love returned to social media to thank Ice Cube, DJ Pooh and director F. Gary Gray for allowing him to be a part of the movie.
