The Moose Jaw Events Centre has just announced that legendary hip hop icon Ice Cube will be coming to Moose Jaw on Sunday, April 28, and tickets can be purchased as early as Friday, Feb. 23.

The announcement comes after the Invictus Entertainment Group has planned a second leg of the “Straight into Canada” tour, following its wild successes on the sold-out earlier run. For this second round, Moose Jaw will be included in the tour featuring Ice Cube, Xzibit, Peter Jackson, and DJ Kav.

Ice Cube is said to have transcended the boundaries of music, cinema, and sports, thereby establishing himself as a legend in the world of entertainment. His upcoming tour will help put Moose Jaw on the map and may allow the Notorious City to gain a little additional notoriety.

Among his prestigious accolades are an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

His initial rise to prominence came at a time when he was a member of hip hop supergroup N.W.A.

Ice Cube’s departure from the group – which was at its pinnacle at the time – marked the beginning of a remarkably successful solo career in music. To date, Ice Cube has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and has earned his status as a rap icon.

Since reaching his stride in the industry, Ice Cube has been a part of two groups following his initial successes. These include Westside Connection with Mack 10 and his longtime friend WC, and the Mount Westmore group, which included such multi-platinum stars as Snoop Dogg, E40, and Too $hort.

Outside of music, Ice Cube has expanded his repertoire to include acting and filmmaking, with notable productions including “Friday”, “Ride Along”, “Barbershop”, and “Are We There Yet?” franchises, as well as the critically acclaimed N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.

Some of the popular movies Ice Cube has acted in include the 21 Jump Street franchise, Boyz N The Hood, Three Kings, and an elite government agent in XXX: State of the Union. Most recently he played Superfly in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

Xzibit, who will also be joining Ice Cube and others on the tour, has been rapping since the age of 14 and began his musical career back in 1992 with his debut studio album At the Speed of Life released in 1996. After his early successes, including his single “Paparazzi” peaking at number 83 on the Billboard Hot 100, Xzibit caught the attention of West Coast rapper Dr. Dre, who later served as his executive producer.

With a multi-platinum career of his own, Xzibit has also gained fame as an actor and television host. Some of his more noteworthy roles include playing Shyne Johnson in the television series “Empire” and hosting the reality television series “Pimp My Ride”.

Featuring a number of hip hop’s biggest icons, the upcoming “Straight into Canada” tour is guaranteed to be a night to remember.

Tickets are on sale starting Friday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m., and are limited to eight tickets per purchaser.
