As much as technology, business and society have changed since the 1980s, one thing has remained constant – the one and only ICE CUBE. Having transcended the boundaries of the rap / hip hop world, he is lauded as one of the most influential and important figures in the entertainment business today. From his tenure as one of the driving forces behind the infamous and iconic group N.W.A, his successful solo career and his ventures into film and television, it’s safe to say he has done it all. Not forgetting where he has come from, Ice Cube continues to perform live and will return to Australia in December for three shows only.
Possessing a brutally honest attack bolstered with proficient and violent lyrics, Ice Cube has forged a legacy spanning 25+ years with millions of platinum and gold album sales worldwide, collaborating with some of Rap and Hip Hop royalty such as Public Enemy, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Ice-T among others, as well as starring in such films as Boyz In The Hood, Three Kings and the Friday series.
Going off his past Australian performances, fans can expect an explosive show packed with the iconic and timeless rhymes such as Check Yo’ Self, It Was A Good Day, You Can Do It, Go To Church, Hello, Smoke Some Weed, Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It and NWA’s Fuck Tha Police and Straight Outta Compton.
Often imitated but never duplicated, the West Coast Gangsta himself is coming back down under to show and prove why he is still the master.
