It only took more than twenty years of making waves in Hollywood, but rap artist, actor, writer, producer and director Ice Cube has actually lastly received a star on the Hollywood Stroll of Fame. The 47-year-old was given his star recently, which was unveiled at an event in Los Angeles on Monday. For those of you who are counting, he is the 2,614 th person to receive a star on the
Walk of Fame. There were a number of Ice’s partners and friends at the ceremony who existed to honor him and state some words on his behalf. John Singleton, who directed Boyz N the Hood, Ice’s very first foray into film, stated that “The mark of a true guy is how lots of individuals he affects in his life time. That’s how I see Cube.” Inning accordance with The Los Angeles Times, O’shea Jackson, aka Ice, was actually rather humble when speaking at the ceremony, for the many part. Here’s a few of exactly what he needed to state during his speech.
“You don’t get here by yourself. Today is not actually about Ice. It has to do with all the individuals that assisted me get here … You ain’t gon na like whatever I do, however you’re going to like the majority of whatever I do. And if you do not like exactly what I have actually got comin’, simply keep watchin’ cuz I’m gon na keep comin’.”
Ice Cube is one of a not-so-big list of people who have actually managed to be genuinely successful and impactful in both the music industry and the motion picture market. As a member of the legendary rap group N.W.A, he helped change the landscape of that genre, which was narrated in the biopic Straight Outta Compton in 2015. In the early 90s, he chose to take a stab at acting, initially with Boyz N the Hood, but then in Friday, which he also wrote. That caused a long and really effective career, which is going perhaps more powerful than ever today. Here’s what Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame had to state about Ice getting his star.
“Ice Cube is among the music world’s most popular figures who has effectively crossed over into the world of motion pictures. He captivates fans from around the world with his creative ventures, and we are proud to include his star to our Hollywood Stroll of Popularity.”
Even if it wasn’t for his acting career, which has been extremely prolific, his music profession would practically be worthy of awarding Ice a star. As it stands, he has 95 soundtrack credits to his name, which is pretty impressive. As a movie star, his motion pictures have actually earned $2.25 billion at the worldwide box office, and that is most definitely excellent. Congratulations, Ice Cube.
