More info:

O'Shea Jackson (born June 15, 1969), better known by his stage name Ice Cube is an actor, screenwriter, producer, and rapper. Regarded as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time, he began his career as a founding member of the rap group N.W.A, and later launched a successful solo career in music and cinema. In 1992, he married Kimberly Woodruff, with whom he has four children. From the mid-1990s onwards, Cube focused on acting, and his musical output has slowed down considerably. He remains one of the most visible West Coast rappers, having helped originate gangsta rap. He is particularly well-known for his incendiary raps on political topics, social relations and ethnic discrimination, particularly the mistreatment of African Americans.

Ice Cube was born O'Shea Jackson in South Central, California, where he was raised, the son of Doris (née Benjamin), a hospital clerk and custodian, and Andrew Jackson, who worked as a groundskeeper at California State University.[1] His cousin is Teren Delvon Jones, also known as Del tha Funkee Homosapien, of Deltron 3030, Gorillaz and Hieroglyphics.[2] At age sixteen, Ice Cube developed an interest in hip hop music, and began writing raps in Taft High School's keyboarding class.[2] He attended the Phoenix Institute of Technology in the fall of 1987, and studied Architectural Drafting.[3] With friend Sir Jinx, Cube formed the C.I.A., and they performed at parties hosted by Dr. Dre. In an interview with well known British broadsheet newspaper, The Guardian, Ice Cube professed he is still a Muslim, having converted sometime in the 1990s.[4]
