Following the Hollywood premiere, Ice Cube headed east for the New York premiere of Ride Along on Wednesday. The rapper-actor hit the red carpet with his co-stars Kevin Hart and Tika Sumpter. He also rubbed shoulders with Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri, Mack Wilds, Sevyn Streeter, Estelle, and The Lox’s Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Jadakiss.
Cube plays an undercover cop in the film, which opens Friday. During his appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” he spoke about working with Hart, being a protective dad to his daughter, and getting his name on the Goodyear blimp.
In honor of his classic hit “Today Was a Good Day,” a charity campaign has been launched to get “Ice Cube Is a Pimp” on the Goodyear blimp on January 20. Only half of the $25,000 goal has been reached, but Cube has offered to pony up the rest of the money.
