Hip Hop TV, KP Records and MTV Classic are proud to present what could well be the biggest single headline Hip Hop concert Canberra has ever seen!
The man himself Mr Ice Cube will be visiting Australia this spring and he will be kicking off a six show tour with a first time visit to the Nations Capital.
That’s right the N.W.A from the Westside Connection. The MC, the actor, the movie director and the independent business man. The god damn West Coast gangsta rap legend himself live in person at the AIS Arena!
Cube will have fellow Westside Connection member WC by his side and there are unconfirmed rumours that he may bring DJ Crazy Toones and one of his sons along for the ride.
To fill out the roster we have Big Dave, Kitty B, N2W, Grantwho and Dlinkwnt of KP Records hitting the stage for the first time since signing on with Wideawake Death Row and they will have some of Canberra’s finest local Hip Hop acts playing in support.
The dynasty of Ice Cube’s career has spanned over twenty years officially landing him the status of an icon. Just ask B.E.T who handed him the “I Am Hip-Hop” icon award in 2009.
If you need a reminder of Ice Cube’s impact on Hip Hop culture;
There are songs like F*** Tha Police, It Was A Good Day, Really Doe, Bop Gun, Natural Born Killers, We Be Clubbin, You Can Do It, Hello, Go To Church, Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It and list goes on.
Or there are movies like Boyz N The Hood, Higher Learning, The Friday series and Three Kings.
And then there are the collaborations with the likes of Tupac, Dr Dre, Eazy E, Snoop Dogg, Nas, T.I., Lil John, The Game and so many more!
The last KP event was a sell out show so get in early or risk missing out on one hell of a night!
