Cube recorded his debut solo album in Los Angeles with the Bomb Squad (Music/PublicEnemy's production team). ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'' was released in 1990 and was an instant hit, riding and contributing to the rising tide of rap's popularity in mainstream society. The album was charged with controversy, and Cube was accused of misogyny, and racism. Subsequently, Cube appointed the female rapper Yo-Yo (who appeared on ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'') to the head of his own record label and helped produce her debut album, ''Make Way for the Motherlode''. This was followed by a critically acclaimed role as Doughboy in John Singleton's hood-based drama, ''Film/BoyzNTheHood''. In the same year as ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'', Cube released the acclaimed EP, ''Kill At Will''. ''Kill At Will'' sold well, becoming the first hip hop EP to go both Gold and Platinum.

He does go back from time to time, alternating roles between "badass thug" and "UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist".

O'Shea Jackson (born June 15, 1969), better known by his gang name Ice Cube, is an American rapper, actor, screenwriter, and producer. He began his career as a member of the rap group Music/{{NWA}} along with group leader Music/EazyE, and later built a successful solo career in music and cinema. From the mid-[[TheNineties 1990s]] onwards, Jackson focused on acting, and his musical output has slowed down considerably. He remains one of the most visible West Coast rappers, having helped originate GangstaRap. On the other hand, he has recently started starring in children's movies, leading to a severe case of RatedGForGangsta.

In 1995, Ice Cube had reunited with former N.W.A member Dr. Dre, who was now part of Death Row Records, in their duet "Natural Born Killaz". After a stint with W.C. and Mack 10 in the rap supergroup Westside Connection, Cube focused on a solo project that would consist of two related albums released separately. In 1998, the first part, ''War & Peace Volume 1: The War Album'', was released. The second part, ''War & Peace Volume 2: The Peace Album'', was delayed a bit but finally released in early 2000. The albums featured appearances from Westside Connection, [[Music/BoneThugsNHarmony Krayzie Bone]] (who was on the hit lead single "Until We Rich") as well as a reunion with fellow N.W.A members, Dr. Dre and MC Ren. In 2000, Cube also joined Dr. Dre, Music/{{Eminem}} & Snoop Dogg on the Up In Smoke Tour. In 2006, Ice Cube released his seventh solo album, ''Laugh Now, Cry Later''. Afterward Ice Cube made ''Raw Footage'' in 2008 (featuring the singles "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It" and "Do Ya Thang") and ''I Am The West'' in 2010.
