More about the West Fest headliners

Ice Cube, whose original name is O'Shea Jackson Sr. is an American rapper, actor, and filmmaker. The artist’s lyrics in the 1988 album Straight Outta Compton contributed to gangsta rap’s popularity. His following albums, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted (1990), Death Certificate (1991), and The Predator (1992), gained critical and commercial success.

Ice Cube has also dabbled in acting. He has appeared in over 40 films, including Three Kings, Barbershop series and Straight Outta Compton. He has also appeared in buddy cop comedies like 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street and Ride Along.

Ice Cube formed N.W.A along with Eazy-E and Dr. Dre. N.W.A had their fair share of controversy for their violent lyrics and hostility towards the police. In 1989, Ice Cube left N.W.A and teamed up with New York artists, launching a solo rap career. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the gangsta rap group N.W.A in 2016.


Cypress Hill, another West Fest headliner act, is an American hip hop group from South Gate, California. They have sold over 20 million albums worldwide, which included multi-platinum and platinum albums. The group is considered the main progenitors of West Coast and 1990s hip hop. Cypress Hill became the first hip-hop group to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is an American hip hop group which consists of rappers Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, Layzie Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Flesh-n-Bone. The group’s debut EP Creepin on ah Come Up was released in 1993 and it featured their breakout hit single Thuggish Ruggish Bone. The group released their second album, E. 1999 Eternal, in 1995, which included hits like 1st of tha Month and East 1999.

The group won a Grammy in 1997 for their hit song Tha Crossroads. One of the greatest hip hop acts of all time, they are the only group to have worked with 2Pac, the Notorious B.I.G., Eazy-E, and Big Pun.
