ICE CUBE stopped by Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater on Sunday, March 17th, 2019 for an intimate theater show after his last appearance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2017.
After penning the most memorable lyrics on N.W.A.’s groundbreaking songs “Straight Outta Compton” and “Fuck Tha Police,” Ice Cube left the group at the peak of its popularity to pursue one of the most successful careers in music history. As a solo recording artist, Ice Cube has sold more than 10 million albums while remaining one of rap’s most respected and influential artists.
Beyond music, Ice Cube has established himself as one of entertainment’s most reliable, successful and prolific figures. In the film arena, he’s an accomplished producer (Friday, Barbershop 2: Back In Business, Are We There Yet?), writer (Friday, The Players Club, The Janky Promoters) and director (The Players Club) who is best known for his acting.
Ice Cube released his first solo album in 8 years, Everythang’s Corrupt, his 10th solo album and 18th album overall via Interscope Records in December 2018. Everythang’s Corrupt continues Ice Cube’s legacy as one of the most politically outspoken rappers of all time, proving that the power of his voice and vision is stronger than ever. The lead single “Arrest the President” was hailed as a “scathing, politically-charged affair” by HipHopDX. Elsewhere on the album, Ice Cube confronts everything from systemic racism in police culture to the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville to Big Pharma’s role in the opioid epidemic and gives a nod to such figures as Colin Kaepernick and the Black Lives Matter movement.[divide color=”#”]
