Ice Cube has contributed a lot to the hip hop culture and he’s still contributing. Cube is one of the few examples of someone who was able to break into the industry and thrive for a lifetime.

From his NWA days to the classic Friday film, everything Cube seems to touch becomes iconic. He’s left his mark in various mediums. Who else can say “Fck the police” and still go on to be one of the most successful and respected person in entertainment? Cube gave us authenticity. He gave us culture. He gave us a rawness that left us wanting more. He is a gem to the culture, so it’s no surprise that he recently received a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. If anything, it’s crazy that he is just now receiving the star at 47-years-old, but you know how it takes forever for Hollywood to award entertainers of the darker complexion.

Ice Cube is iconic. His name will forever be in the books. He didn’t need a star to validate his influence or greatness. We already knew. However, a congrats is still in order. Congrats Cube, keep doing what you do!
