Monday was a good day for Ice Cube and A Place Called Home, which is an after-school youth center in South Central Los Angeles as Ice Cube finally saw his name on the Goodyear blimp, but it didn’t read “Ice Cube’s a Pimp.”

According to the HuffingtonPost, as a result of an internet fundraising petition, $25,000 was raised for youth center A Place Called Home in just about two weeks, and they were able to honor the famous lyric from Ice Cube’s classic 1993 rap song “It Was A Good Day,” in which the rapper describes his perfect day in South Central LA, as Cube spit “Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp / And it read ‘Ice Cube’s a pimp.’”

As mentioned above, it didn’t read “Ice Cube’s a Pimp,” it was a little more family friendly as it read “Today Is A Good Day – Ice Cube” and “Flying For A Good Cause — A Place Called Home.”

Ice Cube spoke out on having his name on a Goodyear blimp just about 20-years after “It Was A Good Day” was released:

“I knew this song had legs when we did it, and it’s actually my most popular song. I never knew that 20 years later, people would still be this interested in the song and the lyrics, and that the song would do something this special for some good kids.”
