“It’s a great day. I wanna thank everybody in the city of Los Angeles, the city of Hollywood,” he siad. “Everybody that had to do with me getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I really appreciate it.”
Ice Cube also acknowledged the people who helped him become the star he is today including his longtime tour DJ, the late DJ Crazy Toones.
