Name: Ice Cube                                                                     
Birth name: O'Shea Jackson

O'Shea Jackson (born June 15, 1969), better known by his stage name, Ice Cube is   
an American MC, songwriter, actor, screenwriter and film director. Regarded as     
one of the greatest hip hop artists, he began his career as a founding             
member of the famously controversial rap group N.W.A, and later launched a         
successful solo career in music and cinema. In 1992, he married Kimberly           
Woodruff, with whom he has four children. Later, in 1992, he converted to         
Islam. From the mid-1990s onwards, Cube focused on acting, and his musical         
output has slowed down considerably. He remains one of the most visible West       
Coast rappers, having helped originate gangsta rap. He is particularly well-known 
for his incendiary raps on political and racial topics, particularly the           
treatment of blacks in the United States.
