Singer, actor and comedian, Jamie Foxx turned 50 years yesterday and celebrated it in style at Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California.

It wasn’t your typical birthday either! It was a full-fledged concert. According to TMZ, Foxx was joined by Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and Too $hort for the big bash. While there Ice Cube performed hits like “Gangsta Gangsta” and Ludacris performed “Move B****.”

Legitimately a modern day Paul Robeson, the Academy and Golden Globe Award Foxx has an eclectic career. As an actor, he crossed over when he played the late, Ray Charles in the film, Ray.

Somewhere in between, he’d find time to do comedy specials like the memorable I Might Need Security.

Long before Ray though,  Foxx, born Eric Bishop was a regular on In Living Color. Over the years he’d be play memorable roles like aspiring actor and hotel employee Jamie King on the Jamie Foxx Show. Foxx would later accompany Kanye West and Twista in “Slow Jams” from West’s debut “College Dropout” album.
