Ice Cube Establishes Scholarship Competition

icecube1.jpgIce Cube has partnered with McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, Minnesota to form an annual music scholarship. The Ice Cube Scholarship is the first time an elite college has partnered with a hip-hop artist. The scholarship will be awarded to one student every year in the music technology department. Finalists will be chosen based on their musical ambitions, academic record and financial need. To receive the scholarship, Ice Cube will give each student a beat and a hook line, and they have to fill in the bass line, arrangement and lyrics. Cube will then select the winner. “It has become a lifelong mission to give back to our youth and provide them with opportunities for a successful future,” says Cube. “I am honored to be working with such a highly respected establishment such as the McNally Smith College of Music and look forward to reviewing the submissions by scholarship applicants in the coming months.”
