Ice Cube

Rapper, actor, and producer O’Shea Jackson is better known by his stage name Ice Cube. He was born on June 15, 1969 in South Central Los Angeles to parents Hosea and Doris Jackson. He has an older brother and sadly his half-sister was killed at the age of 12. Ice Cube got into rapping as a teenager. After meeting Dr. Dre in 1983, he started working with him the following year. The Compton-based group N.W.A. consisting of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Easy-E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella formed and they released their debut album “Straight Outta Compton” in 1988. He split from the group in ’89 due to royalty disputes. Their story was turned into an Oscar-nominated film in 2015. Ice Cube served as a producer and his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. played him in the movie.

N.W.A. was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. Ice Cube has released several solo albums and has appeared in many movies, including “Boyz ’N the Hood,” “Friday,” “Anaconda,” “Three Kings,” “Barbershop,” “Are We There Yet?,” “21 Jump Street,” and “Ride Along.” He’s been married to wife Kimberly Woodruff  since 1992 and they have four children.
