The latest proof: Allhiphop.com reports Cube will executive produce (and occasionally guest star in) at TV adaptation of his film series Are We There Yet? for TBS. "We are dedicated to creating a new template for family comedy," Cube said in a statement. Remember when he was the wrong nigga to fuck wit?
