John Witherspoon died on Oct. 29 of coronary heart disease at the age of 77.

The actor and comic's funeral was this week and Ice Cube was one of the speakers. 

Witherspoon played Cube's father in the films Friday, Next Friday as well as Friday After Next.  At the funeral, the rapper apologized to him for not making another Friday film. You can hear him talk about it starting at the 2:24 mark.

“I really apologize to my friend for not getting the next 'Friday' movie made. It’s not my fault. Some dumbass people in Hollywood at New Line Cinema, if you wanna, you can email Toby Emmerich and Richard Brener if you feel like I feel. Gave you punks two scripts and you didn’t wanna do them. That’s the real. We were tryin' to make that movie for years and we couldn’t get it done. We got the other three and we got our memories and we got our love. My condolences to the family." 

Are you eager to see a fourth [Pops-less] Friday film?
