Rapper Missy Elliott launched the latest round of VH1′s Behind the Music episodes last week, and the next musician to get similar treatment is another rapper: Ice Cube. The episode — which premieres tomorrow, July 6 at 10 p.m. on VH1 — follows the three-decade-long career of Cube, tracing his way from his upbringing in South Central Los Angeles to being a founding member of NWA to eventually becoming an actor in movies like Friday and Are We There Yet?
Cube talks at length about his family and kids (two of which hope to follow in his footsteps!), and friends like Snoop Dogg, DJ Yella, and Nia Long talk about the rapper. EW has the exclusive first look at the episode. Watch the full, exclusive preview video here:
