This is the point where you have the right to start identifying yourself together either a normal human with good taste, or a West coastline Nostolgia Mook. This is the ingredient the main worst form of hip-hop fan eats up, violently declaring some type of stupid oath by this, and also thinking the reason no one else likes the is because they're haters or some variant thereof. Truth is, west shore gangsta lab died, sometime between 96' and also 98' the died, and also never come back. Let no one tell girlfriend otherwise. A couple of good exceptions might dot the days previous this, however they are just that, exceptions, autumn in a now empty bucket. And also Cube guarantee this reality with this longgg set of completely forgettable material. Rating: 2.5Highlights: Pushin' Weight, Dr. Frankenstein, Ghetto Vet, Cash end Ass

after 3 pretty great records ice Cube decides to pull a Chibi-Robo Zip-Lash ~ above us and also becomes bad!In every seriousness, ice cream Cube sound fine here, it's just all of these songs are (besides posesthe Dying, Ghetto Vet, and also Ask about Me) are way too boring and also slow. The track through Korn is an excellent but it would have actually been regardless due to the fact that they contribute almost nothing come the track (that i noticed) besides a etc riff. Prevent this album.
war & Peace, Vol. 1: The war Disc (Produced by ice Cube unless noted) 1|Ask about Me|3:06 (Produced through T-Mix) 2.5 - 32|Pushin' weight (feat. Mr. Quick Khop)|4:35 (Produced by N.O. Joe) 2.5 - 33|Dr. Frankenstein|4:54 (Produced by Joe Joe, N.O. Joe & ice cream Cube) 2.75 - 34|Fuck dice (feat. Korn)|4:03 2.75 - 35|War & Peace|3:18 (Produced by Bud'da & ice Cube) 3 Useless "atmospheric" gunfire aside, the to win is actually pretty cursed smooth. However "Don't Speak" is too much greater than this track for me to perform anything yet think of that track the totality time. To add "Dream On".6|Ghetto Vet|5:05 (Produced by Bud'da) 4 - 4.257|Greed|4:29 3 - 3.58|MP|0:49 2.75 - 39|Cash end Ass|4:21 2.75 - 310|The Curse that Money (feat.

Mr. Brief Khop & K-Mac)|3:28 (Produced through Butch) 2 - 2.5 Either short Khop or K Mac to be auditioning for 2001 with this one.15|X-Bitches|4:59 (Produced by N.O.

Joe & ice Cube) 3 - 3.518|Penitentiary|4:12 (Produced through E-A-Ski & ice Cube) 4Overall: 54.5 - 55 3.04/5 61%: Good; severe flaws; be WARNEDI'll tell girlfriend what, I'm pretty sure I tuned the end as countless words together I could as soon as ice cream Cube was done with the second verse of the whole album. Ice Cube heads to new Orleans just like Snoop Dogg because, as with Snoop Dogg, he'd deserve his creative credibility and also his job priorities had actually obviously shifted into Scrooge status. The is, there's all this proof of what ice cream Cube is qualified of all over you look and listen, excepting because that what he's handing to you. Part dollar save trinket girlfriend fumble into a sewer drain on the method home. Probably the most blatantly depressing characteristic of The war Disc is exactly how colossally mediocre it is in every way. It's seldom a huge enough train wreck to actively dislike, greatly goading disdain the end of you through boredom. If this to be anybody's debut album the would have just to be shuffled off right into its small niche of local nostalgia, yet this is ice cream Cube. The battle Disc has become so hatable precisely due to the fact that of its short ambitions.In a theoretical isolated presence of 1998, Cube's effort is passable, one of a dozen. However in the context of a career and also a pan base, it's the tantamount of recording a knife come the neck in contact of Duty, just to find out via kill video camer that the arrived over there from a football field away ~ ricocheting turn off a helicopter. "The Curse the Money" might be the many relevant tune Cube's ever cut in regards to his career. Prefer most world my age who space fans that Cube, i spend most of my time in a people where Cube's career from this point on is a goofy distraction native what really matters. Yet I don't think I'm invested enough to be together mad as some people have gone to Cube. I'll bet buying this in 1998 to be a genuine buzz kill.

What a weird-ass album. He takes a 5 year break and comes ago to the game all lazy and also shit. His rapping methods are still top notch, it's simply what he raps about and his cheesy ass currently that sort of confuse me. He has nothing crucial at all to speak now, but it isn't even that bad. It's still ice cream Cube, just kind of lost. If he had some much better lyrics and less stupid song this could've been a an excellent album. Greatly raps around money, prison and also how he to be a pioneer the gangsta rap.The production is nice good, yet this is after ~ the West lost its sound after ~ 'Pac died and also began make the efforts to discover itself again. It just feels sort of weird and there are a many lazy beats. The highlights are simply for the win alone and also Ice Cube's delivery, as well as the 5-star monitor which actually have some superior lyrics and rapping.This is at least much better than the trainwreck he exit after this. Not as well bad, simply boring and lacking in personality. Cube sounds worked out down and also is make the efforts to push that "I'm one OG ns don't need to do shit I acquired my younguns because that that" shit. I'd speak just inspect out the songs listed below. Ghetto Vet & Extradition imo space actually top top the exact same level as some of his previously stuff.Best Tracks:
Ask about Me, Pushin' Weight, Ghetto Vet <★★★★★>, Greed, Cash end Ass, Extradition <★★★★★>, Penitentiary
