Ice Cube and DJ Drama Hosts Coors Light’s Coldest MC Competition: Show Recap

Ice Cube has flourished the past 25 years by being able to seamlessly multi-task. He’s a father, legendary MC, actor, producer, and lately we’ve all been seeing him as a spokesperson for Coors Light.

Last night in New York, Cube and DJ Drama hosted the company’s “Coldest MC” competition at Irving Plaza.

Finalists from New York, New Orleans, Charlotte, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Baltimore converged on the stage and let their skills be shown. But before a winner was announced, Cube transitioned into another role: Microphone Kingpin.

The South Central native—dressed in a black tee-shirt, blue jeans and black Chuck Taylors—came out to rock.

Cube leveled the audience with “Natural Born Killaz” then dug back even further into his catalog for “Check Yourself.” Cube’s short set ended with “Today Was a Good Day.”

“A nigga still got it!” Cube said with a smile as the audience applauded.

In the end, it was Charlotte’s Felony Fame taking home the “Coldest MC” title. The show wasn’t over there however with Fabolous performing a live set for the audience.

Celebrities including Busta Rhymes and French Montana were also in attendance to enjoy the festivities. —Shaheem Reid (@ShaheemReid)
