"Ice Cream", released in 1995, is the third solo single by Wu-Tang Clan rapper Raekwon, from his debut studio album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... (1995).

The song features Method Man in the intro, chorus and outro, Ghostface Killah in the first verse, and Cappadonna in the third, though none of them are officially credited on the single.

The B-side of the single is "Incarcerated Scarfaces" and was featured in the soundtrack of the video game Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (2005).

Both songs were included on the compilation album The RZA Hits (1999).

Lauryn Hill later sampled "Ice Cream" on her song "I Used to Love Him", from her album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

The Game later remixed "Ice Cream" with his "Can't Understand" freestyle in 2004.
