Ice Cube dropped by the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) to promote his new sitcom 'Are We There Yet?' and explained the origin of his name. According to the rapper/actor, the nickname was given to him by an older brother after he started flirting with his sibling's girlfriends at an early age.

"My brother gave me my name," Ice Cube said. "He's older than me. Around the time I was going through puberty, his girlfriends would call. He'd never be home and I would be there to pick up the phone, you know, trying to get my little rap in. He started saying I was too cool for school. I was too cool for the room. He started calling me Ice Cube, you know, trying to clown me."
