RAPPER and movie star Ice Cube is to play a one-off London show on July 14, 2008, at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.

Known to be one of the most important figures in rap history, Ice Cube began his career with the Notorious West Coast Gangsta Rap Group N.W.A two decades ago. At the height of the group’s success, Ice Cube broke away to start his own solo career.

Following a triumphant return to the mic after six years in 2006 with the critically acclaimed release of Laugh Now, Cry Later, Ice Cube is ready to take centre stage once again with his ninth solo effort.

The highly anticipated new album, titled Raw Footage, will be released on June 17 on his own independent imprint, Lench Mob Records.

Performing a range of hits spanning both his solo career and his time in NWA, Ice Cube’s London date is set to be one of the most hotly anticipated live performances this summer.
