I’m Never Giving up on ‘Friday! ‘

Ice Cube says he’s never giving up on the fight to obtain the rights to his beloved “Friday” franchise — but won’t go to court to get the job done.
TMZ Hip Hop recently sat down with the legend rapper outside of Dash Radio to ask him about his struggles to own “Friday” as well as any potential spin-off possibilities for the franchise.
Cube was clearly amused by the question and reminded us that the contracts he signed with Warner Bros to make the film have a lot of fine print, including the prohibition against using the same characters on a new production.
Cube has been trying to get the rights back at WB for many years. It’s been a difficult battle. Several original cast members like Tommy Lister Jr. and Anthony Johnson have passed away and Cube recently scoffed at the suggestion from Mike Tyson to buy his own rights back.
Cube states he isn’t interested in taking WB to Court over the issue but believes the movie giant should just give the rights to him so he can continue the franchise.
