Rapper/actor Ice Cube visited the St. Paul, Minnesota campus of McNally Smith College of Music last week, to announce the "Ice Cube Scholarship."
Ice Cube, students and executives from the McNally Smith College of Music were on hand for the announcement on Thursday (May 4).
The Ice Cube Scholarship will be awarded each year to a McNally Smith student. The institution is one of the nation's leading music schools.
"The opportunity to recognize Ice Cube's influence on contemporary music with a scholarship is very exciting," said Diane Kruger, Executive VP of McNally Smith "His passion and drive set an example for the next generation of musical innovators."
The accredited college educates students about the music industry and offers degrees in Music Performance, Recording Technology and Music Business.
Ice Cube stopped by the school during a break from his Laugh Now, Cry Later, national tour to support his album of the same name.
The college also held free Hip-Hop business and technology workshops on Saturday (May 6).
