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.
