Let us, for a moment, forget the B-list actor who plays angry patriarch roles in schlocky comedies (apparently we're going to be blessed with Ride Along 2 in a few years), and let us focus on the hip-hip icon, trailblazer of gangster rap, and one hell of a musician. Ice Cube comes to Newport Beach (yes, Newport Beach) for an incredibly rare live performance. Like, unicorns made of magic bacon rare. This past October he released a song titled "Sasquatch" to the grabby hands of critics and fans alike—but what was most exciting was the announcement that a new album would be released this fall. Catch Mr. Cube's show tonight and maybe, if it's truly a good day, you make get a taste of some new material.
