Ice Cube is one of the most iconic rappers in music history. He rose to fame in the late 1980s as a member of the gangsta rap group N.W.A. alongside Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella, and Arabian Prince. Their lyrics were controversial for the time which lead to the“Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics” sticker on NWA’s albums. The warning only made the band more popular with American youth and propelled their second album to No. 1 on the Billboard sales charts.
In the summer of 1992, Ice Cube was at the top of the rap game. He said the inspiration for his megahit“It Was a Good Day” came from thinking about the good things rap had given him – wealth, women, and of course his Chevy Impala. Ice Cube’s success, of course, has since gone beyond music after he crossed over into Hollywood with films like Boyz in the Hood, Friday, and Three Kings.
