the west coast warlord,
This review is from: I Am the West (Audio CD)
Always look forward to a new Ice Cube album-the first cd i ever bought when i was 14 was the predator-He is the greatest west coast rapper of all time.
On this new album the beats are really good,my only complaint is that most of the songs he seems to be about a catchy chorus/hook and isnt on enough songs solo.He has his sons on a few who are good rappers,but unfortunately for me he has wc on a few too who i think is garbage(i thought he was good when he was maad circle but his modern raps he seems to always do a mad shouting high pitched rhyme thing where he talks garbage).
Another reviewer said he has become lazy and why does he bother-i think here while he isn't dropping provocative rhymes he is just having fun-cementing his rep as the best in the west-lounging at the top-why not?
He still has some killer rhymes"i'm the real iron man-you just robert downey//a crackhead and blackface straight out the county".The actor Keith David still does some voicework on songs here too(thats been like the past 5 albums lol).
Ice Cube is a legend and this album shows he still makes the tightest quality albums around-besides the game who else is going to drop an album of this quality?
It's hard to believe it came out last october-it still sounds so fresh to me and ive played it a lot-100 percent buy it-it is dirt cheap too now
