In what was probably the least gangster rap thing he’s ever done, rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube stopped by Sesame Street this week to kick it with Elmo.
He starts off with a quick vocabulary lesson (he teaches Elmo the meaning of the word “astounding”) and then performs a series of magic tricks. He runs through the usual suspects: making a large coin disappear, making something jump out of a top hat and so on. But the pièce de résistance comes at the end when he turns himself into an ACTUAL ICE CUBE. Get it?
For whatever reason, Mr. Cube did not use this appearance as an opportunity to promote his new album, Everythang’s Corrupt.
