The debut album from Ice Cube, released in 1990, shortly after his tumultuous, era defining work with N.W.A. Though a West Coast/East Coast rivalry would soon emerge, Ice Cube worked with Public Enemy's production team, the Bomb Squad, and both Chuck D and Flavor Flav guest on the album. With Public Enemy releasing "Fear of a Black Planet" the same year, it was a good time for militant, political rap. Like too many albums of the time (and still), the misogyny that crept into the lyrics makes some songs unpleasant to listen to. The production, dense and aggressive, still sounds great, as does Cube, who would spend the rest of the decade trying to sound as angry, articulate, and righteous as he does here. I don't agree with Michaelw2 that Cube should get back with N.W.A., although he did burnish their legacy with the "Straight Outta Compton" film.
yo im ya biggest fan u should get back wit the niggaz wit additudes then yall would be a hell of a lot better
