Beyond music, Ice Cube is a life-long civil rights activist and the co-author of Contract with Black America.
In the film arena, he has established himself as entertainment’s most successful figures and was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. He’s produced the Friday, Ride Along, Barbershop, and Are We There Yet? franchises as well as the critically acclaimed N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. He is also an acclaimed writer (Friday, The Players Club, The Janky Promoters) and director (The Players Club).
One of the most bankable actors in cinematic history, he has also acted in the 21 Jump Street franchise and has had star turns as a conflicted teen in Boyz N The Hood, a greedy soldier in Three Kings, and an elite government agent in xXx: State of the Union.
Joining him will be the legendary Cypress Hill, who burst onto the scene in 1991 and are the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum successes. Since the release of Black Sunday, the group have put out seven more albums including 2018’s critically acclaimed Elephants on Acid.
