Rapper Ice Cube to perform at Alaska Airlines Center in July

Legendary rapper and actor Ice Cube is set to perform in Alaska this summer. The Alaska Airlines Center announced Thursday the hip-hop trailblazer and former member of N.W.A. will play the venue on July 16.

Presale starts Monday for the show with tickets going on sale to the general public on Wednesday.

Ice Cube’s music career took off in the late 1980s as a member of N.W.A. He embarked on a solo career starting in 1990 and produced four albums during the first half of the decade. He continued to make records, most recently releasing “Everythang’s Corrupt” in 2018.

Outside from his status as a pioneer of West Coast rap, Ice Cube has also established a significant acting career. He starred in major films in the 1990s like “Boyz n the Hood,” “Friday” and “Three Kings.” His acting credits also include hits like “Barbershop” and “21 Jump Street.”
