With a name like Ice Cube, we can probably guess this guy doesn’t like room-temperature beer. In this commercial, Ice Cube is politicking with a glass bottle of Coors Light and the new and improved Silver Bullet Coors Light about which one is colder.

Beatmaster Dr. Dre made an album called The Chronic, named in honor of one of his favorite plants. But, besides the Mary Jane (aka marijuana) it seems Dr. Dre enjoys Coors Light as well.
Fashion icon and ultimate trendsetter Kanye West teamed up with Heineken, where he headlined their annual Red Star Access concert. He and his G.O.O.D. Music Team were the main event of the night. Check him out preforming a rare rendition of “The Good Life.”
Earlier this summer, Jay-Z announced he would be teaming up with Budweiser to create the Made in America Music Festival. This three-day event (launched during the first week of July) included headline acts Pearl Jam, Rita Oro and D’Angelo.
Part-time rapper and full-time R&B singer T-Pain is best known for his Auto Tuned lyrics. Watch Bud Light parody his sound and include him in a cameo for this funny Super Bowl commercial.
