He might be ‘Straight Outta Compton’ but Ice Cube looks rather comfortable with his new Dublin jersey.
The rapper and actor was in town today with his fellow Ride Along 2 star Kevin Hart and the pair met Dublin GAA football stars Michael Darragh MacAuley and Kevin McManamon at a special Q&A held at Google HQ.
The live Q&A at Google headquarters was hosted by Baz Ashmawy.
Introducing the two, Baz described rapper and actor Ice Cube as "someone I would sleep with... if I didn't dislike stubble and penis".
Actor and stand-up comedian Kevin Hart described to the crowd of media, vloggers and Googlers his first visit to an Irish gym.
"I don't know what they didn't change but I walked in and said, something's not right in here, man!"
"There were red carpets, there was like, castle chairs... I was working out, like, something used to go down in here".
"They press a button and something turn into something..."
Ice Cube revealed that he filmed 'Ride Along 2' and 'Straight Outta Compton' at the same time.
"It was a labour of love... thank God for technology, it allowed me to be in two places at the same time".
Speaking about on-set mishaps, Hart revealed Ice Cube had "knocked out a stuntman" and Ice Cube revealed that Hart had "killed a chicken".
"Don't be telling people that, man, I'm black! They'll be like, you're killing chickens what is wrong with you?"
Explaining what happened, Hart said that he likes to recreate a stunt after a stuntman has completed it, in order to get the ensuing sequence as real as possible.
"I watched him jump in the chicken coop... I thought I can do this. I was coming in hot... I didn't know the chicken was standing on the spot mark".

Ice Cube said that he "clipped" a stuntman when he "didn't duck" during a fight scene. "There was a little blood".
"Horror movie!", Hart added, "he knocked him out... and you blame him!"
The comedic duo also discussed their partners during the hour-long Q&A, with Ice Cube crediting his 20-year marriage to "true love".
"We've developed a partnership, a friendship, and we handle our business by ourselves".
"We respect each other on all levels".
Baz joked that 22 years in "Hollywood years... is over 4,000".
