Last Night: Ice Cube At House Of Blues

"Look at me; I'm just doing my motherfuckin' thang!"

Ice Cube House of Blues March 2, 2011

We all know the drill: You attend a rap show, buy a few drinks, say hello to your cousin/co-worker/pastor who also bought tickets, and then proceed to sit through a slew of opening acts, until the headliner finally takes the stage two hours later than expected. Then you wait until the very end of the show for that rapper to drop his biggest hit, the one song you really came to hear that night.

Wednesday night at House of Blues was the exact opposite of that scenario.
