Happy birthday, Ice Cube! He turns 51 today. In honor, here are some cool facts about Ice Cube, pun intended!

Ice Cube went to a famous high school. As a teenager, Ice Cube went to Taft high school in the San Fernando Valley. As it turns out, that’s where a bunch of famous rappers went to high school, including Eazy-E and House of Pain’s Everlast!

He’s been married for almost three decades. Ice Cube married his sweetie, Kimberly Woodruff, back in 1992, and the two are still going strong!

His real name is O’Shea Jackson. We like that, but Ice Cube does have a nice ring!

He could have been an architect. Before he becoming a full-time entertainer, Ice Cube earned a two-year degree in architectural drafting from Phoenix Institute of Technology. Nice!

He ruled “21 Jump Street.” Ice Cube portrayed Captain Dickson in the 2012 movie adaptation of “21 Jump Street,” and played the same role in the 2014 sequel, “22 Jump Street.”
