Life for O’Shea Jackson better known as Ice Cube has been something straight out of one his Hollywood movies. The now 51-year-old Cube sold his first song to Eazy-E at age 16. After high school in 1987, he enrolled at the Phoenix Institute of Technology in Arizona. Being passionate about architecture, he majored in architectural drafting.  He completed his degree within one year and returned to Los Angeles to pursue a rap career. Not sure of whether his rap career would work out, he would turn to become an architecture draftsman as a career backup.
