WMA connects with Ice Cube

Tenpercentery will handle all aspects of thesp's career

William Morris has signed Ice Cube in all areas.

Agency will make acting deals for the rapper-thesp, who gets paid $10 million a pic, and handle the TV and feature projects generated by Cube Vision, the production company he runs with Matt Alvarez.

WMA also will handle Ice Cube’s record deals and touring biz.

Ice Cube, who was last at CAA but has gone agentless for months, next stars in and produces the Steve Carr-directed “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House” for Revolution Studios.

Cube Vision also hatched “Black.White,” a documentary series for FX in which white and African-American families switch places, changing their skin colors through prosthetic makeup. Ice Cube, who’s exec producing the series with Alvarez and R.J. Cutler, also wrote the theme song.

He’s also close to completing “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” an album to be released in early summer by Lynch Mob Records. He will tour to support the record.

He continues to be managed by the Firm.
