Ice Cube is an award winning actor, director, producer and music icon. After penning the most memorable lyrics on NWA’s groundbreaking songs “Straight Outta Compton” and “Fuck Tha Police,” Ice Cube left the group at the peak of its popularity to pursue one of the most successful careers in music history. As a solo recording artist, Ice Cube has sold more than 10 million albums while remaining one of rap’s most respected and influential artists today. Last year, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with his group NWA.
In 1991 Cube made his acting debut with a lead role in the critically acclaimed and Academy Award nominated Boyz N The Hood. Since then, he has become one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood with film credits that include Friday, Three Kings, xXx: State of the Union and the Barbershop, Are We There Yet?, Ride Along, and 21 Jump Street franchises to name just a few.
