Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Continuing his amazing success with "Laugh Now, Cry Later," multi-platinum, West Coast rap legend Ice Cube has announced dates for his upcoming Canadian tour. The 10-city tour begins January 12th in Victoria and will be co-headlined by another California superstar, Snoop Dogg.

Fans will get the rare opportunity to witness the heralded 'father of gangster rap', perform tracks off this past summer's gold selling "Laugh Now, Cry Later," quoted by VIBE Magazine as “the reawakening of the N.W.A upstart known for raging against the machine.” The album debuted impressively at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 sales chart and No. 2 on the Hip Hop/R & B charts. As one of the highest first-week sales totals of any independent hip-hop artist in 2006, Cube will perform his instant hits “Why We Thugs,” produced by Scott Storch, “Go to Church” produced by Lil Jon and featuring Snoop Dogg and world-renown classics “It Was A Good Day” “Check Yo Self” and “Amerikkka’s Most Wanted”. Combined with the star power of the ubiquitous Snoop Dogg, Cube will give tickets holders the most anticipated hip hop show of 2007.

Known to be one of the most important figures in rap history, Ice Cube began his career with the Notorious West Coast rap group N.W.A a little over 18 years ago. At the height of the group’s success, Ice Cube broke away to begin his solo career. His initial release, “Amerikkka's Most Wanted” (Priority, 1990) sold over a 1 million copies. His sophomore solo effort, "Death Certificate" (Priority, 1991), debuted at #1 on the R&B Album chart, #2 on the Top 200 album chart and went on to sell over 2 million copies. His impressive musical career also includes the multi-platinum success of both his double album “War and Peace,” and hit albums “Lethal Injection,” “Bootlegs & B-Sides,” and “The Predator.” Ice Cube has sold over 10 million albums to date. “Laugh Now, Cry Later” is Cube’s sixth album to bow in the top 10 tier of the album chart.
