One of the founding artists of gangsta rap, Ice Cube originally rose to fame as a member of N.W.A. and C.I.A. Ultimately, it wasn’t until 1990 that he launched his solo music career, with his debut album, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted.
Since then, he has released several noteworthy singles including Wicked, Check Yo Self, Bop Gun (One Nation), and Pushin’ Weight, all of which received certification from the RIAA. As of 2018, the rapper has released ten studio albums and over two dozen singles.
How Ice Cube Became Famous
A rapper since the 80’s, Ice Cube originally gained recognition as a member of the hip-hop group, N.W.A. One of the earliest popularizers of gangsta rap, they released two albums during their time together, Straight Outta Compton, and Niggaz4Life, both of which went multi-platinum in the United States.
Eventually leaving the group in 1989, Ice Cube made his first solo album with the release of his studio album, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted in 1990. One of the defining hip-hop albums of the 90’s, it was met with critical acclaim upon its release. Some of the singles that it gave rise to include Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside), Dead Homies, and Who’s the Mack?.
Continuing to drop albums on a regular basis, he had four additional titles by the time the new millennium arrived. All as popular as his debut, if not more, they garnered him a significant amount of fame in the 90’s.
From there, Ice Cube issued four additional albums, War & Piece Vol. 2, Raw Footage, Laugh Now Cry Later, and I Am the West, the last of which was made available in 2010.
