Hip hop legends Ice Cube and Ginuwine will perform at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup this fall.

Tickets for the Sept. 6 concert go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Saturday, the fair announced Monday. You can buy them on The Fair’s website or by calling 888-559-FAIR (3247) between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Ice Cube launched his music career more than two decades ago as part of N.W.A., the World’s Most Dangerous Group.

The track “Straight Outta Compton” garnered Ice Cube a lot of attention and allowed him to launch a solo album in 1990, “AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted.”

That album sold more than 1 million copies.

His second solo work, “Death Certificate,” was a concept album about the rise and fall of the black man and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, selling more than 2 million copies.

Ice Cube was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 as part of N.W.A. and given his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ginuwine will open for the show as part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series.

He sang with two different hip hop groups as a child and was discovered by singer Jodeci in 1996.

After releasing the song “Pony” that same year, it became a No. 1 R&B favorite.

Ginuwine went on to see huge success with tracks like “Same Ol’G,” “Differences” and “So Anxious.”
