Clubbed To Death

Featured event:

Wednesday 13 July

Ice Cube @ The Academy 1
+ Naughty by Nature

Time: 7pm - 11pm

Music: Hip-hop

Price: £29.50

Since the point of true commercial breakthrough in the 80s, Ice Cube has been one of the seminal and most influential artists rap music has seen. Alongside Dr Dre and Easy E, he was the lyrical driving force behind cop-bothering ‘gangsta rap’ stalwarts NWA, whose controversial album Straight Outa Compton remains to this day, one of the highest grossing rap albums of all time.

After a fall-out with NWA’s then-manager Jerry Heller, Ice Cube’s hugely successful solo career has spanned nine albums over a decade, with his most celebrated release, The Predator, shifting over 3 million copies in the US alone.

Despite appearances in cult-stoner flick ‘Friday’ and two sequels, plus a lead role in ‘Boyz-n-the-Hood’, his latest acting forays in such as dire family guff-com ‘Are we there Yet’ have been so painstakingly bad, they arguably went some way to mentally cloud the back catalogue of classic rap music he’s produced over the years.

Therefore, it’s much welcomed to hear he’ll be swapping family comedy for the scowls and gangster hand-signs of old and, supported by fellow rap legends Naughty By Nature, the Academy will be a nostalgic treat of classic rap.
