Ice Cube, LL Cool J, The Roots Win NAACP Image Awards
A slew of rappers took home NAACP Image Awards this year.
In what would seem a laughable proposition in his NWA days, Ice Cube won an NAACP Image Award during the 42nd Annual NAACP Image Awards last night (March 5).
Cube won "Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy" for his role in the movie Are We There Yet?
The west coast emcee wasn't the only Hip Hop representative at the show, however, as LL Cool J was awarded "Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series" for his role in "NCIS: Los Angeles."
Other awards included John Legend and The Roots for "Outstanding Collaboration" and "Outstanding Album" for their album Wake Up! Cartoonist Aaron McGruder snagged "Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series" for "The Boondocks."
