Renowned actor and rapper Ice Cube, born O'Shea Jackson in Los Angeles, California, is set to grace the stage in St. Catherines, Ontario, at the Meridian Centre on Thursday, May 2, 2024.

Cube, who started rapping in the late 1980s, rose to fame when the group NWA came on the rap scene in 1988. Ice Cube, who served as the primary rapper and ghostwriter for the group, was one of the people primarily responsible for Hits Rise. After a financial dispute in 1990, Ice Cube split from NWA and went solo.

Over his career, Ice Cube has released ten solo albums, starred in more than 30 movies, and has won multiple awards, including a VH1 Hip Hop Honors, BET Hip-Hop Award, a GRAMMY, and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
