“Thank you mama for always supporting whatever I wanted to do, whether you was with it or not, you said ‘As long as it kept you off the street, you can do it,'” said Cube, who also thanked his father. “A lot of guys don’t have their fathers around, and if you want to make a man like this, stay around your sons. Stay around your kids.”
The ceremony came three days after the release of the 25th anniversary edition of Ice Cube’s second album, “Death Certificate,” which includes three new songs. He was also a producer of the 2015 biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” which chronicled the formation, rise and demise of NWA.
In addition to his legendary accomplishments in the music industry, he’s gone on to fantastic success as an actor, writer and producer in the film industry.
