Comment on the Height of Ice Cube

CubeVision said on 22/Oct/15
Rob, we have got this one wrong. This was taken when Ice Cube was 24 and as we know, you can't really get any taller after that. Also I see comparison

Full evidence: Click Here / Click Here
[Editor Rob: yes, this was shown many years ago, I think it still can put him near to 5ft 8 if measured.]
Dingus said on 21/Oct/15
His stocky build can make him appear shorter.
james said on 28/Sep/15
@ Joe .because his son looks so much like him and who would know how to play ice cube better than Jr ..still can't believe JR is a few inches taller than 5'8 Cube though
joe said on 22/Sep/15
I think cube is closer to 5'7.75 so basically 5'8 and his son oshea is 5'10ish
Joe said on 14/Sep/15
No, I've met plenty of guys taller than their parents. There's also a lot of guys shorter than their fathers too. Ice Cube looks about 5'8 in movies. It's weird that he'd have his son playing him in Straight Outta Compton with him being quite a bit taller than him though.
james said on 7/Sep/15
How did O'Shea Jr grow to be about 5'11 taller than Cube in the photo ..usually the male child takes his daddy's genes
Ken said on 31/Aug/15
How tall would his son be then? He towered his dad at the VMAs tonight.
Dr. Eazy said on 27/Jun/15
And I'm sorry about saying WC was 5'11 he's actually 6'1 and Mack 10 is 5'9
Lorne??? said on 28/Mar/15
Nah, Shredder, look at him with Chris Tucker. 5ft8 is fine.

On a side note,
the shredder said on 27/Mar/15
Rob , Can he be over 5 ft 8 , like between 5'8 and 9 I saw some pics where he looked 3 inches over John Leguizamo and edged out 5 ft 8 Ludicrous ?
[Editor Rob: not convinced he'd be 174 range]
dirtybirdy said on 25/Mar/15
I saw him at a premiere for one of his family friendly films back in 2007. At the very most, he was 5'6. No way he is 5'8.
Dr. Eazy said on 22/Dec/14
eazy-E is 5'5.75 or shorter he might even be 5'3
Dr. Eazy said on 22/Dec/14
My friends uncle is ice cube and he says that when he asked his uncle ice cube said he was 6'0
Guest said on 21/Dec/14

yaris said on 21/Apr/14
I would say he is 5'8, but he have that 'short guy' looks average
foot long said on 1/Mar/14
I think admits 5'8"... plus he looks 5'8"... doesn't come off a short guy though
height said on 11/Jan/14
ice cube is not 5"11 when he stand next to kevin hart he looks 5"6 to me but he look 5"10 next to chris tucker im not sure but he looks 5"7-5"9
Sam said on 23/Oct/13
Dr. Dre I think rounds up to sound bigger. He's about 4 inches shorter than Snoop Dogg and I think right around six foot even. I think Ice is close to 5'8" and Dre 6'0", both maybe a tad under those marks.
YOE\"balls said on 20/Oct/13
isnt Dr. Dre 6'1 if he is then that means Ices cube is around 5'11 to 5'9
coolbro said on 23/Sep/13
Its funny how ice cube is only 5'8 and hes the tallest guy in westside connection that would make wc and mack 10 around 5'6 5'7
Gaz said on 8/Apr/13
Yeah that is around what i thought 5'2'' to 5'3'' sounds more accurate.
Gaz said on 8/Apr/13
Yeah that is around what i thought 5'2'' to 5'3'' sounds more accurate.
Gaz said on 6/Apr/13
Rob how tall would you say Eazy-e was? he is listed 5'5'' allot lol Click Here

[Editor Rob: he had to have been a few inches shorter than that, more a 5ft 2-3 fella]
Conti said on 1/Mar/13
If Wahlberg is 5'7 in that picture than it would make Ice Cube 5'6 solid and 5'7 shoes.I would think Wahlberg is 5'8 solid and Ice Cube 5'7 solid.
Kevin said on 14/Feb/13
im the same height as ice cube :)
im 5'8 1.73 barefoot
And 5'9 1.76 with shoes
toomer said on 10/Sep/12
I met OShea (aka Ice Cube. I'm 5'10 and the top of his head was about the height my nose..
Brad said on 25/Jul/12
The Wahlberg-Cube-Clooney shot is hilarious. Wahlberg is in massive elevators. 5' 7" at most, had the departed one by 1/2" both in Portmans.
LG69 said on 29/Jan/12
Looks around 5'9" with shoes on...5'8" barefoot is probably spot on.
awdeans99 said on 9/Oct/07
I'm pretty sure that he's 5'8". He has alway's seemed sort of on the short side. I think he's come along way since his NWA day's. He's done great as an actor. Comments about anything going on in the world or anyone, email me at
6'1-1/2 said on 27/Sep/07
Glenn-Cube is 5'10",But to say the least maybe 5'9"

[Editor Rob: maybe they chopped 2 inches off the height chart in his video. I put those 2 images of ice beside height chart and the angle of the camera in the video wasn't even at the top of his hairline.

believing 5ft 10 is bizarre when you've got footage of him not exactly slouching in front of a height chart.]
Viper said on 25/Sep/07
The picture with the 6-4 NFL player pretty much proves hes no taller than 5-8, as with the picture with Glenn.
glenn said on 24/Sep/07
who knows,maybe he is 5-9.
Realheight 88 said on 24/Sep/07
Oh, i really thought cube was taller than 5-8, like 5-10, but the pic with glenn proves he is 5-8.Whenever i see a cube's movie he looks in the 5-9,5-10 range.Maybe this is why glenn looks taller(around 5-10) than his 5-8 in some pics with other celebs.
glenn said on 16/Sep/07
exactly leon.
Leon said on 16/Sep/07
Yeah, I never thought about the ground-level, but you're right. I can walk down the street beside my 5'10" friend and be taller than him because of the tilt of the sidewalk.
glenn said on 16/Sep/07
you also have to take into account posture and ground levels.oh,and lifts.
Leon said on 15/Sep/07
Okay, thanks very for clearing that up for me, Glenn. I only ask because knowing what your footwear's like helps me better judge the height of whichever celeb you're standing next to. I always wear shoes with at least 1-inch heels,too, so we'd probably be exactly the same height.
glenn said on 15/Sep/07
flat shoes? in the old days,like the pic above,it was dreaded reebox that only gave an inch.nowadays i wear thicker shoes or sneakers.1.5 at least.
Leon said on 14/Sep/07
I'd give Ice Cube five eight and a half. That's my height and he definitely looks no shorter than me. His bulky build in XXX: The Next Level makes Cube seem like a big bloke regardless. By the way, Glen, I'm interested to know whether you always where flat shoes in your photographs?
Alex said on 13/Sep/07
He would be 5'8 thats if Morant has a 9.5 inch head. If its more than that then Cube may be 5'7.5. But 5'8 looks right.
glenn said on 7/Sep/07
good pic viper.
Viper said on 7/Sep/07
Cube looks 5-8 next to 6-4 measured Johnnie Morant of the Oakland Raiders. Click Here
che said on 6/Sep/07
then eminem must be 5'7
glenn said on 25/Aug/07
i think mc ren was also 5-8,5-9.
Jon Doe said on 24/Aug/07
Ice Cube is 5'8,Dre is like 6foot something,Eazy E could be anywhere from 5'4 to 5'6 which is probably the reason he had an afro and a hat on all the time.How tall are DJ Yella and MC Ren?
glenn said on 22/Aug/07
thanks for taking the time out for me means still haunted that i never got to meet him.
Dennis said on 22/Aug/07
I told a lot of kids about Eazy because they were to young to remember him,Ralph has been on a N.W.A retrospect,he been listening to nothing but N.W.A since 1998 and he's also an original Ice T and N.W.A fan.
Dennis said on 22/Aug/07
What's up Glenn-Ralph told me Eazy was a very generous guy,he was a philanthropist,political activist and generally a charismatic person.We all miss thoughs N.W.A Days like in 1989 when being profane was obscure you know back in the days but not long ago.
glenn said on 22/Aug/07
i love eazy e. i never met friends friend has a near group photo with nwa! he has dre,eazy and cube in the photo with him.they were all nice to him.
Dennis said on 22/Aug/07
Glenn-My friend Ralph who happens know Eazy personally,he grew up with Eazy E and later moved to Boston,he's also a huge N.W.A fan and is obsessed with peoples heights.He says Eazy was about 5'5" max maybe little considering shoes.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
dennis-did you know or know anyone that knew eazy personally? ive been having serious discussions about eazy coincedently, recently.
Dennis said on 21/Aug/07
Yeah Glenn,when you think you Ice Cubes roots there's always something prehistoric,Ice Cube has always been stocky,Eazy was stocky too.Dre,Ren,Yella are all mesomorphs,Ice Cube and Eazy are endomorphs.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
cia ever put out product?
Dennis said on 20/Aug/07
Ice Cube is a stocky guy making him seemingly shorter,he's always been stocky even before N.W.A he was with a crew called C.I.A in 1985,he just a large frame.Dr Dre is also pretty big but not stocky just overweight and he still appears quite tall
Viper said on 20/Aug/07
I thought Ice even gave a slightly shorter appearance in his NWA days. Hes not over 5-8.
glenn said on 20/Aug/07
so dennis,was he thinner then? and he looked 5-10? maybe his stocky build now makes him shorter.maybe he was 5-10 and is 5-9 now.anything is possible.i mean almost everyone thought including myself that dmx was short.even in front of my face he looked 5-9 a few times.then he streched out to was his bizzare posture that tricked me.a hunch,sort of,not a shoulder was like his spine relaxed.
Dennis said on 19/Aug/07
Hey Glen-maybe your right,Cube could've shrunk,
glenn said on 19/Aug/07
d ray-houdini doesnt hold a candle to what i can do ;-)
glenn said on 19/Aug/07
im irish/mestizo indian.
priscilla said on 19/Aug/07
wow. glenn looks sooo different. like he looks caucasian. i think he is philipino? am i right? or just plain weird and crazy?
D. Ray Morton said on 19/Aug/07

"do people like totally ignore glenn's picture and the part where I capped the mugshot :)"

It seems they do. Then again, Glenn could be levitating in that pic. Hey, you never know.
glenn said on 18/Aug/07
dennis-any possibility he shrunk a bit?.
the shredder said on 18/Aug/07
I think 5'8 is pushing it , more like 171cm .
Viper said on 18/Aug/07
Cube being over 5-8 is impossible.
RICHARD said on 17/Aug/07
Looked 5'8 or 5'9 next to 6'1 Chris Tucker in Friday. Ice actually gave me the impression he was a 6'0 guy in Boyz N Da Hood
Dennis said on 17/Aug/07
I'm a true N.W.A fan, I remember it like it was yesterday in the front row at an N.W.A concert back in 1988,backstage I asked every member to stand together so I can take a picture,Ice Cube was exactly 3 1/2 inches shorter than Dr.Dre,Hey Glenn you're probably taller than you think like 5'9" or something.
glenn said on 15/Aug/07
excellent eye viper.correct.i had a copy of the predator signed over here too.these are my black reebok not much height advantage.
Viper said on 15/Aug/07
The picture with Glenn looks like it was taken in 1993. Thats how Cube looked when his Predator album came out.
leonari said on 15/Aug/07
Dennis: man...another wise ass. Cube is 5'8" . Everybody knows that!
Lmeister said on 15/Aug/07
Ice Cube isn't 5'10''/190. He looked rather small next to Criss Angel(5'10''). 5'8''ish/180 max...
Dennis said on 15/Aug/07
Ice Cube's Height is definitly 5'10",he's three inches shorter than 6'1" Ice Cube's pushin weight video there's a profile stating his height and weight being 5'10" 190 lbs.

[Editor Rob: do people like totally ignore glenn's picture and the part where I capped the mugshot :)

people should visit this page if they ever doubted glenn's height...]
8 Ball said on 8/Aug/07
There is something weird about Ice Cube: In a picture with N.W.A. he was like at least 5 inches taller than Eazy-E, who was 5'5. But in the other pictures he looks like 5'8 so I think that is wright maybe he shrinked^^
Ball-a-Hallic said on 2/Aug/07
how tall was the guy who played deebo in the friday series i've seen listings from 6'5.5-to 6'7.5 idk what to bill him at
THE REAL ANONYMOUS said on 6/May/07
I might have mentioned this on the Sly page, but I saw Icecube backstage at a concert a couple of months ago. Snoopdog and Ice were on the same bill. Icecube must have walked by me at least ten times and he is max 5'8 , prolly just a shade under that.
G-unit said on 30/Apr/07
These days Ice cube really look 5'8. But back then, in old NWA videos he did look 5'9ish
dequanwilliams said on 3/Mar/07
ice cube is definitely 5'8 because ilooked at him and my dad together when we went to a concert and he's like way shorter than my dad who is onlt 6'0
Lmeister said on 3/Mar/07
Appeared in MindFreak (Criss Angels tvshow). Next to Mr. Angel he looked like a little boy with a beard. 5'7''-5'8'' range not as big/buff as seems in some movies just wears baggy clothing...
glenn said on 3/Mar/07
rob-brad is acting uop again.on the sly page not 5-6 or 5-7.i dont know why you let this asshole more time,and something drastic will happen.with my doing or not.

[Editor Rob: I will warn him and delete this comment...]
Austrian said on 16/Feb/07
funny you people who say he looks like 180 or 185 even rofl

to me he always looked like 5'5
Glenn said on 11/Feb/07
I agree.his early stuff was great.
Slayerfan said on 10/Feb/07
I always thought of him being 180cm or at least 178. Damn, he's shorter than me. :D Anyways, one of the best rappers around.
mr.olympia said on 1/Feb/07
what!? i thought he was like 185 cm :P
ice said on 10/Dec/06
Cube looks like a solid 5'8 to me. I don't see anything less than that. Some people like to downgrade for the sake of downgrading. Sighs. He had a nice amount of height over easy-e, who was about 5'4.
dequan williams said on 21/Jun/06
ice cube is about 5'8 because in his films with mike epps he looks way shorter than mike epps who is only 6'0
CoolJ said on 6/Jun/06
The mugshot is shot at a lower than eye-level.. and he hardly looks over 5'8 w/ shoes...

Ice Cube is probably 5'7, or a shade over. He even looks shorter than Glenn who is a little under 5'8"
D. Ray Morton said on 5/Jun/06
"He was arrested for crimes against movie making..."

Too bad he made bail.
Chris said on 5/Jun/06
Is the mug of ice cube from a movie or real?

[Editor Rob: yeah, this was a few years ago. He was arrested for crimes against movie making...]
Alex said on 24/May/06
He looks 5'8. The mugshot has him at 5'9 making him 5'8 unless hes wearing big boots or something. Shortest he'd be would be 5'7.5.

[Editor Rob: he might stand a little less, I wasn't sure just how high the camera was in that video...cube can be made to look taller in films]
Glenn said on 14/May/06
Yeah,but in those 1990-1992 pics I might be 5-7.I dont why I feel and look tall this week.too bad no photo taking!
Glenn said on 13/May/06
Whats more confusing is now Im measuring 5-8 late at night.instead of 5-7.cant figure it out.I guess I shrink sometimes.

[Editor Rob: lol, you've grown back to your original, congrats, all that stallone posture you've been doing has forced you back where you belong, the 5ft 8 club!
Glenn said on 13/May/06
Some geniuses say Im 5-6.
dmeyer said on 12/May/06
glenn realy looks 173 in pics
anon said on 4/May/06
yeah 5'8 is about right.
I'm 5'2" and I was standing on a curb facing him and he was barely taller than me. The curb was about 4 inches high.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 17/Apr/06
I always thought he was like 5'10 until i saw friday when chris tucker had like 3 or 4 inches on him
~Nate~ said on 6/Apr/06
My sister just met him at his CD launch party last night, she's 5'8 and was wearing about a 2 inch heel and was about 2 inches taller then him, she said 5 '8 is right.
Polska said on 22/Mar/06
Good point about the military posture Rob. He looks like he has a pretty relaxed posture in the mug shot. After factoring in hair and shoes I'd say 5'8 on the dot is exactly right. Glenn's pic is the nail in the coffin.
CoolJ said on 20/Jan/06
5'8 is the MAX.. I still think hes a shade under.
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Jan/06
Ice and Glenn added.
CoolJ said on 15/Jan/06
"[Editor Rob: his standing height yes would be 171cm, but maybe if he was in military measuring stance he'd be 173? Who knows...]"

If we're unsure maybe we should chop him down 1 or 2cm.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/06
snoop said on 27/Dec/05
on a picture with the n.w.a. ice cube looks like 5 foot 10 because he's almost one head bigger than eazy e but in his video's he looks shorter.
CoolJ said on 17/Nov/05
Think about it.. He's barely scraping 5'9 at his hairline and add that to the fact that the camera is below his hairline level.. In one shot he appears slightly under 5'9 even... Most shoes are 1-1.25" .. He's most likely 170-172cm .. not 173cm or over.

[Editor Rob: his standing height yes would be 171cm, but maybe if he was in military measuring stance he'd be 173? Who knows...]
CoolJ said on 17/Nov/05
The mugshot seems like its shot from below.. Assuming he has shoes on, he's probably more like 171cm.
Cornbreadman said on 16/Nov/05
I think he's a pretty short/tall guy. Are should I say medium lol. He's probably 5'8 wide.

[Editor Rob: yep...that's why he called himself Cube. 68 * 68...nah, some still say he might be under 173cm...]
CelebHeights Editor said on 15/Nov/05
In Ghost of Mars sometimes this guy did appear taller, but there were enough scenes with him and Henstridge (i.e. many closeups) that had his eyes gazing up to her ;)
James said on 14/Oct/05
Yeah, Ice Cube is 5'8" on the dot. He was exactly my height(Im 5'8") when he came down here in Miami. I met him at some place where he was talking about "Are we there yet".
J. said on 8/Oct/05
Hey, now, Rob, Ice Cube is 6'1" nowadays. He's been doing pilates!!!! ;-)
CoolJ said on 8/Oct/05
I'd inclined to agree with the below poster that Cube is probably about 171cm based on that mugshot.

I think his hair takes close to 1cm away, plus the photo seems to be shot at around shoulder-level.. so the perceived height is moreso than it actually is.

Not sure about the "boots" thing that A-Bomb was referring to though.
CelebHeights Editor said on 8/Oct/05
In xxx2 they done a good job of making the 'hero' appear taller. In fact if you paused the dvd at around the 25 minute mark you might spot Ice's mug on a big screen showing the tip of his head at the 6ft 1 mark on a mugshot. Lol!
A-Bomb said on 14/Apr/05
I'd say 172cm, though most likely 171 cm. I've seen the clip for "Check Yo Self" with the height chart and I noticed in it Cube isn't wearing his normal sneakers, but some pretty sturdy looking boots. Plus Cubes hair subtracts at least a cm off of that height chart.
Ricardo said on 10/Apr/05
If you watch the advertisement for XXX State of the Union, you will see Ice cube on a height chart and his head hovering slightly over 72 inches lol!
Ball-A-Hallic said on 3/Apr/05
Mike Epps has to be 6'0 cause Anthony Anderson is 5'10 and in Malibu's most Wanted they stand by one-another and Mike got a good two inches on Anderson
Ball-A-Hallic said on 3/Apr/05
I thought Cube was about 5'11 but Mike Epps is 6'0 so I've heard and Cube did look smaller but I thought Cube was 5'10 but not 5'8.

[Editor Rob: It is common that Cube got listed 5ft 10 for a while but he really does look 5ft 8, a solid 5ft 8 at that]
Celebheights Editor said on 14/Feb/05
Watch the video for “Check Yo’ Self” and there’s a brief scene of Cube alongside a measuring board getting a mug shot. It has him clocked at 69 inches. Subtract one inch from the sneakers he’s wearing and you got O’Shea’s height. Math rules!
