Biography

When rap exploded creatively and commercially in the late 1980s, Ice Cube was at the forefront of the expansion. As the lyrical brains behind N.W.A, the Los Angeles-based rapper instantly became a major player in the music game by leading a musical revolution with brutal, profane, politically-infused music that, for the first time in the genre’s history, sold millions of albums with ...

Format: Audio CD
After producing a classic with his debut,AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, many questioned whether ice cube could get more political,get angrier, and most importantly if he could top the huge standard he'd set for himself. Well no fear, because how do u beat a classic? You make possibly the best hip hop album of your generation! It's political, furious and awesome!! A concept album which has the 1st half of the album labeled "the death side" showing where the black man is, and then "the life side" showing the black man where he must go.Cube's storytelling is off the scale as his lyricism, straight to the point and not making any excuses. Unfortunately it comes at a price as ice's anger got him accused of racism,against the koreans working in the liquor stores and n.w.a's manager a white jewish fella by the name of jerry heller. This was the soundtrack to the l.a riots and perfectly epitomised the struggles of the black peoples of L.A.This album covers everything from hustling, dealing,girlfriends,std's,politics, and a memorable n.w.a diss.Although not for the faint-hearted and not for yer kids, this is straight-up hardcore rap classic material,recommended highly. One of, if not the best album in rap and cube's best. WOW!!

[...] 'No Vaseline'.....probably the best diss-tune ever.
Other than accusing his former fiends of being 'gang-banged' by their manager, he also has a go at the Koreans, white males, cops, the American government, 'bitches n hoes' and generally anyone who gets on his nerves. Therefore you'd be right in thinking that the lyrics on this album are not only violent, but also homophobic, anti-Korean, anti-Semetic, misognystic, anti-AmeriKKKan and anti-authority in general.....However, thay are also poignant, informed, accurate, prophetic, clever and witty. This is an album from an artist at the top of his game. It's like the life of poor, Black Americans in the early nineties chewed up by Cube and spat back out on to this album. It is a monumental hip-hop album from a monumental hip-hop voice. Buy it immediately, if not sooner.

All I say is this:
This album has not been bettered by nearly any artist in the last 12 years. Taken as a whole, rather than a collection of singles as most hip hop albums are, this is an amazing conceptual album. I dont think ive ever heard sequencing as good as this on any hip hop album or any album for that matter. The concept in short: Cube shows where black america is on the death side, then proceeds to show you where it needs to go on the life side. His range of topics and storytelling hasnt been matched, and I dont think it ever will be. The music - incredible beats but cohesive as a whole. No beat or bassline is the same. And its weird to think that when they released this in England the first time round, No Vasoline and Black Korea were removed because of their content. Now 12 years on, they are back on again. True Cube in his full on Nation of Islam mode does come out with some stuff that you might take offense at, but this album as with his first leaves you thinking. and it gives you an insight into life that for many normal LA residents in 12 years hasnt changed.
In short- theres not one artist I can think of in the hip hop world at the moment who would dare to make an album like this again because they are too obsessed with getting on MTV and riding in their Bentleys. Cube didnt care about that when he wrote this album. Sure he wanted money, but at least he had the balls to tell it like it is.

after the dissapointing 'amerikkkas most wanted', ice cube quickly released this. this is a great improvement, mixing some catchy pop hooks with enough hardcore beats to keep everybody happy. I could go on about ice cubes political stance, with many songs based on the rodney king beating and his mistreatment by policemen, but this album is generally pure class, though nothing compares to his earlier NWA work. this is his second best solo outing, after the predator, so if u have a few quid going spare u could do worse than to pick this up and give it a listen.
