Friday was originally conceived by Cube and longtime collaborator DJ Pooh. The duo wrote the script and created all the characters for the film. With a history steeped in Hip-Hop and pop culture, betting on Cube’s success proved to be a hit as Friday would go on to gross $28 million at the box office on a $3.5 million budget. After Friday, Cube continued to create films and act in front of the camera, and most recently promised fans to bring the story of N.W.A. to the big screens.
