Ice Cube stars in "Are We There Yet?" on TBS as Terrence.

Ice Cube is a dynamic force in both the world of film and music. With films that have generated over half a billion dollars at the box office and with more than 10 million records sold, he is proving that he's not solely confined to just one facet of the business.

Ice Cube began his transition behind the camera when he wrote, produced and starred in the cult hit "Friday," which helped spawn a successful franchise for New Line Cinema.

The sequels "Next Friday" and "Friday After Next" helped cement his place in Hollywood. The "Friday" franchise has generated over $200 million with combined theatrical, home video, soundtrack and DVD revenues to date.

The multi-hyphenate artist is the head of his own production company, Cube Vision Productions. Through Cube Vision, Ice Cube has produced or executive produced nine films. This includes the "Friday" series for New Line Cinema, the "Barbershop" series for MGM as well as "Beauty Shop," starring Queen Latifah. Cube Vision also produced "The Players Club" that marked his directorial debut.

Cube Vision produced the box-office hit family comedy "Are We There Yet?" starring Ice Cube. This marked the first release through the 2003 deal Cube Vision signed with Revolution Studios (and Columbia Pictures), which to date has grossed over $85 million domestically. Ice Cube was last seen in "XXX: State of the Union," the follow-up to the successful franchise film "XXX" for Revolution Studios.

In addition, Ice Cube starred in and executive produced the hit comedy "Barbershop" for MGM. The ensemble comedy also starred Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas and Cedric the Entertainer. The sequel, "Barbershop 2," was released in February 2004.

Ice Cube also starred in the critically acclaimed "Three Kings" with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg. He received excellent reviews for his performance in the film, which was picked as one of the Ten Best Films of 1999 by Time, Newsweek and the National Board of Review. He made his highly regarded motion picture debut in John Singleton's Academy-Award-nominated "Boyz N The Hood," a role that won him the Chicago Film Critics Award for "Most Promising New Actor."

Other film credits include Joseph Kahn's "Torque," "Anaconda" with Jennifer Lopez and Jon Voight, "Trespass," "The Glass Shield," "Higher Learning" and "Dangerous Ground."



Ice Cube continues to be one of the most recognized hip-hop artists in the recording industry. At the 2005 Soul Train Music Awards, he was presented with Soul Train Music Awards' highest honor, The Quincy Jones Award for Outstanding Career Achievements.

Ice Cube's thriving music career includes the double-platinum success of both discs of his double album "War and Peace." As a solo artist, he 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 (Westside Connection) produced the platinum-plus album "Bow Down." A collection of his greatest hits, featuring two new songs, was released by Priority Records in December 2001. After a seven-year hiatus, Westside Connection released their latest album, "Terrorist Threats," in November of 2005.

In March of 2005, Ice Cube was honored at Chrysalis' Fourth Annual Butterfly Ball, for his continued support in helping homeless individuals become self-sufficient through employment opportunities.
