Ice Cube

O'Shea Jackson, better known by the stage name Ice Cube, is an American rapper, actor, and filmmaker. His lyrics on N.W.A's 1988 album Straight Outta Compton contributed to gangsta rap's widespread popularity. His solo albums of 1990 and 1991 consist of political rap. In 1991 and 1995, entering film, he starred in Boyz n the Hood and cocreated Friday.
His first rap group, C.I.A., formed in 1986. In 1987, with Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, he formed a pioneering gangsta rap group, N.W.A. Its lead rapper, Cube wrote some of Dre's and most of Eazy's lyrics on Straight Outta Compton. A landmark that shaped West Coast rap's first identity apart from East Coast rap, this album introduced lyrics extremely violent, threatening to attack abusive police and innocent civilians alike, lyrics that redrew boundaries. Leaving N.W.A in late 1989 via monetary dispute with its management by Eazy-E and by Jerry Heller, Cube teamed with New York artists and launched a solo rap career.
His first two solo albums, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted in 1990 and Death Certificate in 1991, were also forceful and controversial, criticizing whites, blacks, women, gay men, the Jewish man Jerry Heller, and Korean store owners.
