Ice Cube Walk of Fame

Ice-T will be honored with the 2,747th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 17.

“Ice-T is a cultural icon and a success both in the music and television industries. His fans will be very excited to see their favorite performer placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in a press statement.

Since its orgin in the 1950s, millions of tourists walk the popular attraction daily to get a photo of their favorite celebrities’ five-pointed honor.  The stretch of pink terrazzo and brass stars along Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, and its adjacent streets, are full of more than 2,500 celebrities who have contributed to film, music, television, theater and radio. 

Out of the thousands of Walk of Fame stars, did you know that Tupac Shakur is only the 13th rapper in history to receive the honor? And he received it posthumously, 26 years after his 1996 murder. The number isn’t too shocking, since the process to get a star is pretty laborious. Each celebrity must be nominated, apply for the star with a written statement and raise the required amount of money to receive the honor. 

See below for the 13 rappers who have received the ultimate Hollywood “street cred.”
