For his follow-up to the excellent career-best 'The Predator', Ice Cube embraced funk grooves and gritty urban seventies beats, laying down big thick basslines, looping scratchy samples and serving up funk-synth lines and hard as nails rapping over the top. From the Slick Rick-sampling Really Doe onwards this album is vintage Cube, telling tales of wayward cops, intrusive cop helicopters, carjackings, teenage gangstas "harder than the O.G.s", and religion (honest). It's an infectiously listenable album, very accessible in that it moves away from the hardcore gangsta rap of NWA and early Cube solo work. It stands with The Predator as his most accomplished work to date - Cube sounds best when he's heavily involved in both writing and producing (as on these 2 albums). On later albums he concentrated on other areas, and the music and overall sound suffered accordingly. However, here he was in fine form, at the top of his game.

The third act in cubes essential trilogy(death cert,predator & this),although he's never made a bad album he never made another quite as classic sounding as the these.and like the previous two,the production sounded totally different again,incorporating more funk & soul influences then before.a great album, I'd give it a 4.5 star,let down by the crap song cave bitch which is just filler.

The title says it all, I mean when i first bought I just coudn't stop playing this album and saddly this is the last classic album Ice cube made as a solo artist but this album is not political as Death certificate or Predator but this album has only one political song which is "Ghetto bird" everything else is more gansta Rap and Gfunk sound and I wish he went on with his career with this sound but saddly this is the only album with that sound, but other then that this album is great! must if your a fan of westcoast hip hop and fan of Ice cube like every hip hop head!!

Following the relentless intensity of his early-'90s albums, particularly his post-Rodney King statement, The Predator (1992), Ice Cube reclined a bit and put his rap career on autopilot beginning with Lethal Injection, the last album he would record for five years. Yes, it's a disappointing album, but it's not a terrible album by any means, of course. Even if Ice Cube is a little devoid of substance here relative to his rabble-rousing past, he's still a talented rapper, and he has one of the West Coast's premier producers, QDIII, joining him for almost half the album. Unfortunately, much of what made Ice Cube's early-'90s albums so electric — his thoughtfulness, wit, hostility, energy, and social consciousness — is sadly in short supply. For compensation, Ice Cube offers a few standout singles, namely "You Know How We Do It" and "Bop Gun (One Nation)." The former follows the successful template that worked a year earlier with "It Was a Good Day" — a laid-back G-funk ballad laced with an old-school funk vibe; the latter clocks over 11 minutes, an epic ode to George Clinton's P-Funk legacy. These two songs undoubtedly rank alongside Ice Cube's best work ever. There are a few other songs like "Really Doe" and "Ghetto Bird" that also stand out, but even these songs sound rather lackluster relative to Ice Cube's previous work. He's obviously not interested in making an album as daring and ambitious as The Predator again, and you can't really blame him. After all, Ice Cube had delivered three brilliant albums, and a similarly brilliant EP as well, Kill at Will (1990), in just three years, not to mention his then-burgeoning role as an actor. He deserved a break. But at least he took the time to craft two standout singles that alone make this album worthy.
