Ice Cube

O'Shea Jackson, called Ice Cube, is an American rapper, actor, and filmmaker. His lawless lyrics on N.W.A's 1988 album Straight Outta Compton led gangsta rap's outbreak. Yet his solo albums of 1990 and 1991 rank high in political rap. In 1991 and 1995, entering film, he starred in Boyz n the Hood and cocreated Friday.
In 1988, Cube had found fame, alongside Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, as a member of pioneering gangsta rap group N.W.A. Its leading rapper, Cube also wrote some of Dre's and most of Eazy's lyrics on Straight Outta Compton. A music and cultural landmark, this album introduced lyrical content extremely violent, threatening to attack abusive police and innocent civilians alike, rap songs that pushed boundaries. Leaving N.W.A in December 1989, Cube launched a solo rap career.
His first two albums, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted in 1990 and Death Certificate in 1991, offered lyrical delivery of similar force and of content inciting some controversy, but generally more conscious and reflective, with sociopolitical criticism.
