While most rappers from the city have no qualms with sharing that they’re from Compton (i.e., Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Quik, etc.), there are many other famous names who are from the city too.  Some don’t talk about it as much, but they definitely make folks out their proud with their success on TV, in film, on the basketball court and more. Here are nine people from the much talked about city. Some you might have known about, but there are quite a few who definitely surprised us.

    Ice Cube isn’t from Compton, He is from South Central. Tyga is from Gardena. These are too totally different areas from Compton. I dont know if the writer is from So Cal or not, but i highly dislike when people who are not from LA or have no experience with LA write, blog etc, about LA with out having your facts straight. YOU CANT SOURCE JUST WIKIPEDIA FOR FACTS.

    Regarding Niecy Nash: I saw an interview about the show Soul Man right before the first season. She said she is also from St. Louis (along with Cedric and one of the producers Eric Rhone).

    • Nicole

      Ice Cube is from South Central Los Angeles…You are probably thinking of Mac 10 who is from Inglewood

      • Wood

        South Central LA is still a totally different area of LA then COMPTON. Thats like saying a person from Brooklyn is from the Bronx.
