Ice Cube has called George Osborne his 'homie' after hearing of his obsession with hip-hop group N.W.A.

The 46-year-old rapper and actor spoke of his connection to the Chancellor of the Exchequer during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Alongside Kevin Hart, his co-star in the upcoming feature film 'Ride Along 2', Ice Cube appeared perplexed when the presenter first mentioned Osborne, before quickly remembering his most unlikely fan.

Osborne, who once invited Dr Dre to No 11 Downing Street, is said to have described his attendance at an N.W.A gig in Brixton as the "coolest thing I've ever done".

Arabian Prince, Dr Dre, Eazy-E and Ice Cube were in N.W.A's original line-up. Their album 'Straight Outta Compton' sparked a biographical film under the same name.
