Born O'Shea Jackson on June 15, 1969, in South Central Los Angeles, Ice Cube's parents were Doris and Hosea Jackson. Doris worked as a custodian and hospital clerk, while Hosea was a groundskeeper at UCLA. Tragically, Ice Cube lost a half-sister at the age of 12. His childhood was spent on Van Wick Street in Los Angeles, where his passion for rapping and hip-hop music began to take shape at just 14 years old. The moniker "Ice Cube" originated from a playful threat by his older brother, who jokingly suggested he'd toss him into a freezer and retrieve him as an ice cube.
