Exclusive: Kokane says that Ice Cube should talk to Eazy-E children and Above The Law, among others, in order to properly tell N.W.A's story.

As a member of Eazy-E's Ruthless Records, G-funk pioneer Kokane helped the Godfather of Gangster Rap build a brand that would serve as the prototype for Hip Hop's independent label business model.

But with the buzzed about N.W.A biopic, which is being produced by Ice Cube's CubeVision production company, already in the casting process, Kokane worries that his former boss' legacy is being misrepresented.

In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, the west coast crooner says he refuses to sit idly by.

"We put a proposal together called 'Protecting the Ruthless Legacy' that we want to get on The Arsenio Hall Show," said Kokane, whose critically new album, Shut da F#@! Up & Cut Da Checc, hit iTunes Jan. 14. "We gettin' it done right now as we speak. Everybody's agreed. And it's gonna be beautiful to see. We'll have all [Eazy’-Es] kids come on, MC Ren, Big Hutch, Yella, J.J. Fad and we're gonna tell the real story because, Ice Cube, I don't fault you for doing this movie. You're a genius, and you show that stereotypes can be lifted off of us, but at the same time you are doing something that's wrong and foul. You're purposely leaving out certain information that is vital to the story."

Kokane said that Ice Cube is making a movie without getting the facts from the people that witnessed it first-hand.

"It's sad cause you see Cube, you see all these people doing this N.W.A movie honoring Eazy, but they're not even getting internal,” Kokane said. "They're lying saying that they're getting in touch with people, but Eazy's children didn't even get a phone call. I didn't get a phone call. Above The Law didn't get a phone call and it's like they're doing it for profit, but they're not doing it authentically from the heart. It's unethical and it's foul. it's like you don't care. You guys care about getting money. But you know the good thing about it: There's always hope out there to have the real story told. It's increments. You gotta go back and touch the people if you wanna get the truth, because there's so much blockage as far as capital. It's a story that if it's told right and somebody can crack open this thing wide enough, everything else is gonna be the prototype for every other story. Trust me."

Kokane is looking to bring the West Coast full-circle with his new label, Bud E Boy Ent., which features a roster of artists and producers from various locations, including one that with ties to the past.

"I'm working with Eazy's son, E3, and he sounds just like his dad," Kokane said. "It's fitting because the way I'm running my company comes from the blueprint that Eric [Eazy-E's given name] started."

What the fu*k JJ Fad got to tell about the NWA story?

Above the Law was later when the 2nd lineup of NWA brokeup
with Cube leaving. Notice he is not on the Ruthless posse cut
on their album. Dre's verse is obviously written by Ren or D.O.C.
not Cube as was usually. Eazy's verse is wack, probably self-written.
They even shout out Jerry Heller on the track, when Cube was off
that sh*t already.

i like kokane his music is diffrent and his new cd Shut Da Fuk Up & Cut The Checc is good classic west coast ish....but ya hes looking for little off the back end of this. He says he wants the kids and family to get a call but kids were not there and the ones he didnt call are on the family side where the evil deeds were being done. I am sure cube and dre are doing for the money but thats what its about

only people I wanna hear from is "Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC Ren, DJ Yella, D.O.C." and Eazy E interviews fu*k what anybody else has to say. What are the kids gonna say about NWA? they weren't in it or don't know anything about it. Above the law....maybe but they came later. He just tryin to promo his new cd and mad cube didn't reach out. I wanna hear about NWA not Ruthless Records afterwards....and if I did want to hear about that I would hope they Call Bone Thugs and Above the Law and not him!

so a sherm smokin n*gga with a new project out got something to say about something that isnt even half way complete .....

go figures ......

and listen ... i aint takin cube side ..... cube dun did some foul sh*t to a "few" of my peoples in the late 90's early 2000's ....... including letting mack 10 beat the living breaks off of cubes brother in law IN FRONT OF CUBE AND HIS WIFE ..... but thats besides the point ....

point now is ... cube is bringing the nwa legacy to many people that aint even aware of what the group meant to hip hop ..... is it a cash grab ?????? maybe ....... but dude is basically hating because he was an "associate" of eazy .....n*gga said they didnt call lil e ????????? because that bi*ch n*ggaz a dust head who only cared about his pops legacy once he tried to have a career ....

you gonna talk to the "devil" herself ??????? eazy's wife (tamika wright) ..... please ... the bi*ch may be the real reason eazy dead .....
If I recall right, didn't hopsin also have issues with e's wife?
