At Long Last, Ice Cube Sees His Name On The Goodyear Blimp

blame it on Meka January 21, 2014

Although it didn’t say “Ice Cube’s a pimp” (or any mentions of his jimmy running so deep it put the girl he’d been trying to get with since the 12th grade to sleep), Cube – roughly 22 years to the day of his epic day – finally had his name prominently displayed on the SoCal staple as a part of his participation in a charity drive for A Place Called Home. The LA Weekly reports:

And this being the 22nd anniversary of that good day, it was time to rectify that omission. It was also time to raise some money for charity — via the crowdfunding site Crowdtilt, three “hip-hop loving friends” calling themselves “Team Good Day Blimp” vowed to raise $25,000 for A Place Called Home if Goodyear would get its blimp involved. Once Ice Cube said yes to the plan, and Jimmy Fallon gave it a plug, it was only a matter of (very little) time before Goodyear said yes.

So today Goodyear flew its blimp over South Central L.A. Kids from A Place Called Home, which works with at-risk youth, even got to ride in the thing.

Crazy, right? Check out some more visuals below.
