Ice Cube receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

47 year old rapper, actor and producer O’Shea Jackson popularly known as Ice Cube received a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame which make as a testament to the hip-hop icon’s fruitful career.
THe star was unveiled On Monday morning outside the Musician Institute on Hollywood Boulevard.
The ceremony took place just three days after the release of the 25th-anniversary edition of Ice Cube’s politically charged album “Death Certificate,” and just three days before his 48th birthday (the news of which sparked an audience call-and-response: “When I say ‘happy,’ you say ‘birthday!’”).
Ice Cube first rose to fame in the late ’80s as a rapper and lyricist with the West Coast “gangsta rap” group N.W.A, alongside fellow South Central natives Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, MC Ren (all of whom were present during Monday’s ceremony) and Eazy-E. Ice Cube penned the lyrics to several of N.W.A’s most resonant songs, including “Straight Outta Compton,” “Gangsta Gangsta” and “Express Yourself.”
In his acceptance speech — which ran more than three times his designated two-minute interval — he thanked everyone, including his mother and his longtime lawyer, Lee Young.
“You don’t get here by yourself,” the rapper said, sporting a pair of thick-rimmed rectangular shades and his characteristic black snapback with the L.A. Dodgers symbol sewn into its crown.

“Today is not really about Ice Cube,” he said. “It’s about all the people that helped me get here.”
