Ice Cube

As head of the production company Cube Vision, Ice Cube (Durell Washington) has written, produced, and starred in the cult hit Friday and its successful sequels, Next Friday and Friday After Next. Cube Vision was also responsible for The Players Club, in which Cube made his directorial debut. He also starred in and executive produced the back-to-back box office hits Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business. In Are We Done Yet?, Cube again starred as Nick Persons, a role he created in Revolution Studios' sleeper-hit family comedy Are We There Yet?, which he also produced through Cube Vision.

His other film credits include the critically acclaimed Three Kings, opposite George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, Trespass and Higher Learning. Cube made his feature film debut in John Singleton's classic Boyz n the Hood.

Cube continues to be one of the most recognized hip-hop artists in the recording industry. His thriving music career includes the double-platinum success of Volumes 1 and 2 of his double album, War and Peace. As a solo artist, Cube has recorded such hit albums as Lethal Injection, Bootlegs & B-Sides, The Predator, and Amerikkka's Most Wanted. His collaborative effort with Mack-10 and WC formed the group Westside Connection, whose second album, Terrorist Threats, was released in December 2003 and marks the follow-up effort to their 1996 double-platinum seller, Bow Down. A collection of Ice Cube's greatest hits, featuring two new songs, was released by Priority Records in December 2001.
