Rapper, actor, and movie producer Ice Cube received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday (June 12) in front of the Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard. Cube was joined by N.W.A. members Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren, who posted a photo on his Twitter with the caption, “Congratulations to @icecube getting his star in Hollywood. Today was a good day.”
The star, which was unveiled Monday morning outside the Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard, caps the better part of a lifetime making music that not only reflects his experiences but also has had an impact on the broader culture.
“It’s about damn time,” said rapper WC, a close friend of Ice Cube, who spoke during the unveiling ceremony. “Because this is long overdue.”
Thought Ice Cube said, “I still feel like a young man,” his legacy in
hip-hop has spanned nearly 30 years, ever since the then-teenager penned “Boyz-N-The-Hood” for a little-known emcee named Eazy E. Congrats, Cube!
