Brace yourself Adelaide! He’s back! After Cube’s last performance at HQ in 2010 which sold out within two weeks of the event, the legendary West Coast rapper Ice Cube is making another detour to the City of Churches, bringing with him that infamous signature classic sound of head nodding “gangsta” rap, and the local Hip-Hop disciples couldn’t be happier.
Ice Cube needs no introduction, his music has played a huge role in defining the sound, attitude and ideology of West Coast Gangsta rap. From his early days with N.W.A. to his Luminous solo career, Cube has transcended every hip-hop music trend and mastered an ability to stay relevant with his dominant, brutal prolific lyrics. Ice Cube didn’t make music for trips to the Barossa Valley, he made music for the misplaced urban masses as the voice of controversy and revolution, and to the well-appointed teenagers who aspired to the urban-life-style but were not born into it. Cube’s shows are aggressive, he commands the stage and electrifies his audience into a frenzied tsunami, venues shake as fans chant word-for-word with Cube, while he makes no apologies or excuses for past songs that incite violence and promote sexism.
Ice Cube is one of the most recognised hip-hop artists in the world. He has recorded eight studio albums, which together have sold in excess of 10 million units. His debut solo EP Kill At Will was the first hip-hop EP to reach both gold and platinum record sales in the U.S., and his 1992 album The Predator debuted at number one on both the pop and R&B charts, the first album in history to do so.
In 2008 Ice Cube brought his ‘Straight Outta Compton’ shows and in 2010 the ‘I am The West’ tour, playing to rave reviews and sold out shows around the country.
