The latest artist to be featured on VH1’s Behind The Music series was one of the pioneers of west coast gangster rap music, Ice Cube. In the piece that aired last night we learn how Ice Cube first got introduced to rap, meeting Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, the fallout of N.W.A. and his last conversation with Eazy-E before he passed. We also get a look into Cube’s later years transitioning into acting and some of the scrutiny he received early in his career plus a look at the family man.
