Ice Cube is getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday morning, an accolade that’s been a long time coming.
Cube took to Instagram on Monday morning to address his major accomplishment, writing: “Toast to all my Day 1 Riders! If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
Just in time for the re-release of his 1991 Death Certificate album, Cube will make his mark in Hollywood — ironically, the same street he ran through as a teenager getting to football practice on the other side of town.
“I had to catch the 210 bus down Crenshaw, then you would change buses in Hollywood,” Cube told Variety. “And it’s dope, because I walked through Hollywood as a kid, trying to catch a bus to the Valley on my way to football practice. Now I’m gonna have a star there, and some kid like me, on his way to practice or whatever, is gonna see my name down there, and have hopes and dreams of getting theirs down there too.”
Congrats to the star.
Cube’s ceremony will kick off live at 11:30 a.m. PST.
