TCO is proud to present true legends of Rap, Ice Cube & Naughty By Nature in concert.
Pioneers and originators of West coast & east coast rap come together for two exclusive and unmissable dates in the UK. O’Shea Jackson, better known as Ice Cube, is a rap legend of his own lifetime. The American rapper, actor, screenwriter, film director, and producer, who began his stella career as a member of seminal gangster / reality rap group N.W.A. alongside Dr Dre, Eazy-E and MC Ren in South Central LA California, is now just as famous as a Hollywood actor with leading roles in some classic hit movies such as, Barbershop, Boyz In the Hood, Friday, Three Kings, etc. But 2010 saw Cube return to his true calling with his 9th studio album ‘I Am The West’, and it’s with this body of work that Ice Cube sets off on the road and hits the UK in July 2011. Expect to hear classic joints spanning 9 albums, from his first solo album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, via bangers ‘It Was Good Day’, ‘Check Yo Self ‘ ft Das EFX, through to the club banger ‘You Can Do It’.
Bringing the West Coast & East coast rap together on one stage will be Grammy Award winning Naughty By Nature. The American rap trio from East Orange, New Jersey, formed in 1989, consisting of Treach, Vin Rock, and the DJ Kay Gee. Originally mentored by fellow New Jersey native Queen Latifah, Naught By Nature stormed the hip hop (and pop) world with their Jackson 5 hit ’ABC’ sampled record ‘O.P.P.’ in 1991. The group have had multiple hits from the subsequent 6 albums, including ‘Poverty’s Paradise’ which won a Grammy Award in 1996 for Best Rap Album, becoming the first album to win this award. With Treach’s stage presence, and the musical ability of dj & producer Kay Gee on the stage, Naughty By Nature will be bringing that old school block party flavour to the UK!
