Ice Cube and his wife Kim have been celebrating their 31st wedding anniversary, and the rapper/actor took a walk down memory lane to acknowledge the milestone.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday (November 28), Cube shared a carousel of images of himself and Kim over the years.
“31 years of marriage. 34 years of love. Happy Anniversary,” he captioned the loving post.

It’s been a great year for Ice Cube, who recently learned he will be honored by the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame with the inaugural Ice Cube Impact Award.
The collaboration will honor Cube’s “extraordinary contributions to the world of basketball, his unparalleled passion for the game and his unwavering commitment to encouraging crucial dialogues surrounding inclusivity, equal opportunity, and racial and social justice while contributing to initiatives focused on education and community development.”
In a statement, the BIG3 basketball league creator said: “The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Award named in my honor is truly remarkable, and words alone can’t express my gratitude for this recognition from such a prestigious organization.”
He added: “Having an award bearing my name only intensifies my commitment to advancing inclusivity and equal opportunity in sports, alongside my unwavering dedication to community activism.”
The Naismith Hall of Fame will permanently house the Ice Cube Impact Award in its museum and honor subsequent award winners each year “through a dedicated exhibit and in-depth storytelling about honorees who use basketball as a platform for good works in their own communities.”
President and CEO of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame John L. Doleva added: “Ice Cube’s unquestionable passion for the game and his desire to see it utilized as a catalyst for positive impact on communities are unwavering. His sphere of influence in both the entertainment industry and in the professional sports arena brings remarkable authenticity and value to this award.”
Doleva continued: “We are delighted to join hands with Ice Cube as he leverages his love of the game to inspire others. The Ice Cube Impact Award will stand as a testament to the power of basketball and the profound impact it can have on communities worldwide.”
The Ice Cube Impact Award will be presented to Ice Cube at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 15, 2024) in Springfield, Massachusetts.
But although he has some major achievements in music, film and sports – Ice Cube would prefer if you don’t refer to him as the G.O.A.T.
“For those who thinks it flatters me, please don’t call me a fucking goat. Carry-on,” he wrote on Twitter in September. He followed up several hours later, writing: “Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate the respect but don’t call me that.”
