Ice Cube was born in South Central Los Angeles, California as O'shea Jackson. He started to become interested in hip hop around the age of 16.Thats when he would write rhymes in his high school keyboarding class. In 1987 cube studied Architectural Drafting at the Phoenix Institute of Technology with his friend Sir Jinx. During his stint in drafting school Cube and Jinx formed a rap group called the C.I.A. and performed at parties hosted by Dr. Dre. in 1987 Cube dropped "My Posse" under an alias of "CIA and the county police. A short time after "My Posse" dropped, Cube showed the lyrics to "Boyz-N-The-Hood" to Eazy-E. Eazy rejected the song at first because he was not yet a rapper. F.Y.I. Dr. Dre punched every bar on Boyz-N-The-Hood because Eazy didn't know how to put lines together yet.
