Ice Cube Biography
Ice Cube began his career with the notorious gangsta rap group N.W.A. He broke away at the height of their national notoriety. On his initial solo release, 1990’s Amerikkka’s Most Wanted, Ice Cube injected virulent political and cultural rhetoric that stepped above N.W.A’s gangbanging braggadocio. Ice Cube squashed the bi-coastal rap rivalry and collaborated with New York’s hip-hop heavyweights Public Enemy. Their production team, the Bomb Squad, produced Amerikkka’s Most Wanted. The track "Amerikkka’s Most Wanted" was his debut solo single and was #1 on the Hot Rap Single chart. The album sold over a million copies.
