Ice Cube headlines Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe

Ice Cube performs at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, Aug. 4.

Stateline welcomes one of rap's finest this weekend by way of iconic performer Ice Cube.

Ice Cube wrote notable lyrics for N.W.A. hits, including "Straight Outta Compton," then "left the group at the peak of its popularity because he was not being paid correctly," according to the artist's Facebook biography.

"That move led to one of the most successful careers in music history. As a solo recording artist, Ice Cube has sold more than 10 million albums while remaining one of rap's most respected and influential artists."

But aside from being behind hits like "It Was a Good Day" and "Check Yo Self," Ice Cube has also worked in film as a producer, director and actor.

"One of the most bankable actors in cinematic history, his films include the acclaimed 'Friday,' 'Barbershop' and 'Are We There Yet?' franchises, as well as star turns as a conflicted teen in 'Boyz N The Hood,' a greedy soldier in 'Three Kings' and an elite government agent in 'xXx: State Of The Union,'" continues the bio.

Despite the entertainer's versatility, "his first passion will always be music," according to the bio.
