What is Ice Cube’s net worth? Fans want to know and we have answers. Ice Cube was born O’Shea Jackson on June 15, 1969, in South Central Los Angeles, California. He was raised by his mother, Doris, who worked as a hospital clerk, and his father who worked as a groundskeeper at the University of California.
When he entered his teenage years, his parents pulled him out of the local school and bussed him to a suburban high school in the San Fernando Valley. He was shocked by the difference a few miles could make and be determined to make a better life for himself.
After high school, he enrolled at the Phoenix Institute of Technology, where he earned a two-year degree in drafting. He was also knee deep in music at this point, and after starting a small rap crew with his friends, Cube got the attention of Dr. Dre.
Together, they teamed up with a few other rappers (DJ Yella, MC Ren, and Eazy-E) to create the legendary hip-hop group, N.W.A. The group sold millions of records, but Cube wasn’t happy with how much he was getting paid, so he left the group in 1989 and released his debut studio album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted in 1990.
Many people believed the album would be a failure, but Cube proved the haters wrong. The album received critical acclaim and is still regarded as a hip-hop classic. His second studio album, Death Certificate was released one year later in 1991 and went certified platinum. His third album, The Predator, has sold over two million copies. He was as famous as Beyonce and Taylor Swift.
In addition to his incredibly successful rap career, Ice Cube has also found success as an actor. He starred in the critically acclaimed Boyz n the Hood in 1991, and then transitioned to the comedy film world with Friday, Barbershop and Ride Along.
With success in both the music and film industry, Cube has collected lots of coins throughout his career. According to the most recent report, Ice Cube’s net worth sits at $160 million, making him one of the richest rappers in the world. In 2017, his net worth was around $140 million, so it’s jumped $20 million in two years. He is definitely in the mega-millions club that includes Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld.
