News: Ice Cube To Tour Australia

2 min read

(AUS) The game changes and rappers come and go, but one man has remained constant – hip hop legend Ice Cube!

Having leaped the boundaries of the rap / hip hop world, he is known as one of the most influential and important figures in the entertainment business today. From his time as one of the driving forces behind the infamous and iconic group N.W.A, to his successful solo career and his ventures into film and television, it’s safe to say he has been there and done it all.

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, he has also collaborated with some of Rap and Hip Hop royalty such as Public Enemy, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Ice-T among others.  And then there is his film career as a producer, actor and director of such films as Boyz In The Hood, the Friday series, Barbershop and more recently Ride Along and the Jump Street 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 as well as some fresh tracks from his new album Everything’s Corrupt.

Often imitated but never duplicated, the Hip Hop Legend is coming back down under to show and prove why he was the one who “started this gangsta shit”!

‘Ice Cube blew in from the West, gracing the stage to a soundtrack of old school beats from the multi-talented rapper that pleased the crowd ripping through his hits.’– MTV
