Ice Cube.

Born, O'Shea Jackson started of his career in 1987 with the group NWA with Dr dre, Eazy E, MC Ren and DJ Yella. Cube started Writing Rhymes at tha age 16 in his keyboard highschool Class at William Howard Taft High School. With friend Sir Jinx, Cube formed the C.I.A, the group released a EP called MY POSSE with Dr dre as the producer in 1987, and they performed at parties hosted by Dr. Dre.Soon after that Cube met with Eazy and gave him Lyrics to tha smash hit Boyz n da hood for the album N.W.A. and the Posse. The album Straight Outta Compton was also wrote by Ice Cube.

Ice Cube started his solo career after having money issues with Eazy e and his Manager Jerry Heller. He went off to New YOrk and started production to AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted with the lynch mobb and Publics enemy production crew The Bomb Squad. The album was a major instant hit. 1992 da lynch Group ice Cube's group released Guerillas in tha Mist, which reached 24 on tha charts.

After creating 4 classic albums between 1990 to 1993 he found the group Westside Connection with WC and Mack 10 in 1994. The Group was out for war between west and east coast, cause Cube was tired of east coast rap dissing the westcoast rap. The group only released 2 albums together, in july of 2008 mack 10 left the group and the Game replaced him as the other member.

Cube also worked with Tupac Shakur on his album Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z., appearing on the track "Last Words" with Ice T. He also did a song with Dr. Dre for the first time since he left N.W.A: "Natural Born Killaz", for the Murder Was The Case soundtrack

Ice cube is also a producer/actor. Cube made his 1st movie in 1991 called Boyz in the Hood as Doughboy. then in 1995 he made Friday as a producer and leading role with sidekick Chris tucker which is now a Comedy classic, he would go on and create 2 more Fridays which were both successfull sequels.

Today Cube is still releasing classic albums, in the summer of 08 he released his 8th solo album which was a instant hit, some claiming he brought back and saved the westcoast music scene.

in my opinion Ice Cube is the Best rapper alive.
