Preston & Steve®

Weekdays 5:30am - 10:30am

Ice Cube has made his mark in different realms of the entertainment industry since the 1980s.

From a successful career as a rap artist that dates back over 30 years to a transition into acting and success as a filmmaker, he’s seen it all.

The stories started flowing during his guest appearance on The Preston & Steve Show.


Ice Cube’s Career

The versatility to impact music, film, and culture so significantly requires nearly constant work and unthinkable creativity.

Preston called him “a guy who stays busy all the time,” and Ice Cube’s body of work certainly proves the point.

Seth Rogen recently asked him to provide the voice for Superfly, the villain in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I would be the stupidest dude in the world to turn this down.” -Ice Cube

Cube shared the story of landing the hilarious role of Captain Dickson in 21 Jump Street. As it turns out, just running into Jonah Hill at an event celebrating Quentin Tarantino set the opportunity in motion. How’s that for name recognition?

Preston got him talking about his role in Boyz n the Hood in 1991, and Marisa also got him to joke about his son’s role in Cocaine Bear.

Upcoming Performance in Atlantic City 

Ice Cube gave fans a big expectation for his performance at Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino & Resort in Atlantic City on Friday, July 7.

“30 years of hits. 30 years of my career from N.W.A., (and) early solo stuff. So we’re going to have fun…I’m not rapping over the record…I’m not doing no funny stuff that happens nowadays. I grip, and I rip.” -Ice Cube

The idea of an accomplished performer who still loves rapping as a simple way to express himself provided an incredible sense of authenticity.

“It’s still fun for me to get on the mic and perform like it was when I was battle-rapping people on the senior quad. It’s still a hobby for me, and it’s still fun even though I’ve made a career out of it.” -Ice Cube
