Direct from Compton, huh? It’s a funny fact that Ice Cube was the only member of the N.W.A. not from Compton, California, where it was founded. With this in mind, before we look at Ice Cube’s size, weight and body measurements, let’s look at some more fun facts about the rapper himself.
He was born on June 15, 1969, as O’Shea Jackson, the son of Doris, a hospital employee, and janitor, and Hosea Jackson, who worked as a groundskeeper at UCLA and as a machinist.
Had he not chosen a musical career, he would have become an architect. The artist has a degree in architectural drawing. He has this to say about it: “If you want me to draw you a house, I can draw you a house; however, I don’t know if it will be habitable. So you know who is NOT drawing a plan for your house.
In the 1990s he converted to Islam, but nowadays it is rather unclear which denomination he belongs to.
He got his nickname/stage name Ice Cube from his older brother, and there is also a pretty “cool” story behind it. He tried to hit on girls who called the house for his brother when he was younger. From that moment on his brother started calling him Ice Cube because he was too cool for his age.
Like most celebrities these days, Ice had his fashion line. It’s called Solo by Cube and includes many types of clothes. By far the most innovative are his hooded sweatshirts with built-in headphones in the hood bands.
Two of his four children follow in his “rapping” footsteps. O’Shea, Jr (born 1991) and Darrell (born 1992) both have the musical gene from their father.
Let’s check that out before we get a little too carried away and start with the theme of the height of Ice Cube.
Ice Cube’s Height
Ever since we first saw him on our TV screens, it was more than obvious that the star was pretty much on the short side. He stands at 5 feet and 8 inches, which is below the average American male height of 5 feet and 9 inches. We can say that he just missed the bar there.
He is not alone when it comes to short male MC’s, the list is quite long. The layers are supposed to be between 1.5 and 1.6 meters, Nas is 1.7 meters, Lil Wayne is 1.5 meters, Ludacris is 1.7 meters and Too Short is not as short as some of these guys with 1.5 meters 7 inches.
Nevertheless, some think that Ice Cube could be up to 1.5 meters tall, especially after he played the leading role in Ride Along Along with Kevin Hart. Well done, Kevin, if anyone can make other people look taller, it’s you. But don’t get us wrong, we love Kevin Hart, even though he’s small, his talent is throwing baskets outside with Yao Ming.
Now it’s time to check out some remarkable people as big as Ice Cube. Eminem, Rihanna, Kanye West, Sean Penn, and Anne Hathaway all share the height of Ice Cube.
Ice Cube’s Weight
Ice Cube has a somewhat heavy frame, and we have the numbers to prove it. The star weighs 88 kilograms, and he carries every kilogram proudly and correctly. Make no mistake, it’s not fat, just correctly built. He doesn’t follow any special training or diet plans to maintain his size on a normal basis, but he has set the tone for his XXX movie.
In the movie, he plays the role of a Triple X agent for the NSA. At first, people, being the curious kittens that they are, we’re a little skeptical about his suddenly firm body, but later they learned that he had been training intensively for five and a half months for his movie role.
The training sessions included boxing, weight lifting, intensive running, and some Thai training and hand fighting techniques.
