THREE KINGS

As an actor, screenwriter, director, producer, rapper and music producer ICE CUBE (Chief) is a modern-day Renaissance man and one of his generation's cultural icons.

He most recently wrote, directed, executive produced and starred in "The Player's Club," and wrote and starred in the upcoming "Next Friday," the sequel to his earlier film "Friday," which he co-wrote, co-produced and starred in. His other acting credits include "Dangerous Ground," "Anaconda," "Higher Learning" and John Singleton's acclaimed "Boyz N the Hood," in which Ice Cube made his acting debut in 1991, earning the Chicago Film Critics Award for Most Promising New Actor. The film's title is taken from a rap written five years earlier by the teenage Cube.

Ice Cube started rapping when he was 14 in South Central Los Angeles, where he pushed his notion of gangsta rap, a genre he virtually invented and defined with his old group N.W.A., to new levels. He penned "Boyz N the Hood," "Doperman" and "8 Ball" for the group's "N.W.A. And The Posse" album, and also wrote the rhymes for the N.W.A albums "Eazy Duz It" and "Straight Outta Compton."

In 1990 Ice Cube went solo. His first album, "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted," turned gold within 10 days, on its way to platinum. The follow-up, "Kill At Will," also went platinum. Subsequent solo platinum albums include "Death Certificate," "Bootlegs & B-Sides," "The Predator" and "Lethal Injection." He most recently released "War and Peace Vol.1" (The War Disc). The album's second disc, "Peace," will be released shortly. Ice Cube also has many music production and mentoring credits, collaborating with Mack-10 and WC (Westside Connection), among others.
