Ice Cube is a certified legend in hip-hop from his early beginnings as a member of N.W.A. to branching out as a successful solo artist. Considered as one of the founders of ‘gangsta rap’, Ice Cube will forever be remembered as a powerful storyteller who was brutally honest with his political/violence centered lyrics. While Ice Cube is still focused on music, in recent years his main priorities have involved Hollywood and the big screen. In promotion of his movie “Ride Along” with comedian Kevin Hart, Ice Cube stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about his film career as well as his legacy/future work as a rapper. 

As an actor, Ice Cube has come a long way from his first standout role as Doughboy in the classic “Boyz In The Hood”. As well as hyping up the release of “Ride Along”, Ice Cube talked about upcoming projects including a sequel to hip-hop fan favorite “Friday” with Chris Tucker as well as a N.W.A. documentary. While Friday is being held up by studio skepticism, the N.W.A. documentary/biopic is underway with both Ice Cube and Dr. Dre acting as producers on the highly anticipated project. On the music front, Ice Cube reflected on the good and bad times with N.W.A., other past beefs with Cypress Hill and Common, as well as his next album titled Everythang’s Corrupt which is set to be released this year.

The West Coast is strong as ever in terms of hip-hop, and the work of Ice Cube has likely influenced some of your favorite rappers (ex. Kendrick Lamar). It was nice to see The Breakfast Club ask questions about his legacy in the rap game rather than just talk about Kevin Hart and Ride Along.
