His first multi-platinum record, it gave rise to several smash hits including, Wicked, It Was a Good Day, and Check Yo Self (Feat. Das EFX). From there, the rapper came out with Lethal Injection in 1993, before taking a five-year long break.

Though not as successful as his earlier titles, he released the War & Peace series between 1998 and 2000. Since then, Ice Cube has dropped a few additional albums including, Laugh Now Cry Later, Raw Footage, I Am the West, the first of which went gold in the United States.

From that point onwards, he began to get involved with behind-the scenes work, both as a writer and producer. In late 1995, he produced and co-wrote his first movie, Friday, which went on to become a box office success. Throughout the rest of the 90’s, he took part in several productions including Dangerous Ground (1997), Anaconda (1997), The Players Club (1998), The Got the Hook Up (1998), and Thicker Than Water (1999).

Since then, Ice Cube has starred in several high-profile films including Barbershop (2002), Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004), Are We Done Yet? (2007), 21 Jump Street (2012), The Book of Life (2014), and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016), to name a few. Most recently, he also played as Strickland in the comedy flick, Fist Fight (2017).

Likewise, the rapper has also made himself known on television. In 1994, he landed his first official acting role in the sitcom, The Singer Show.
